What am I on about

Page history last edited by Andrew Alder 1 week ago

 

What am I on about? Good question! One I hope everyone asks themselves and I know they don't. Which is very sad, see judgement.

 

In no particular order:

 


 

 

I am a scholar

Repeatedly but not always rejected by so called universities, it took me ages to realise that I don't need anyone's permission to be one, and that I always have been one.

 

I was a very difficult student. I don't think that's an excuse and hope I have never given it. Levi-Civita said the same thing about Einstein, who turned out to be his most gifted and important pupil.

 

I am a Christian

And I hope it shows in these pages. The link above to judgement is an example. It is openly evangelistic. I hope and pray it will lead some to Jesus.

 

I'm a rather difficult and radical one. I think that's what Jesus wants of all of his followers, but some of us succeed in being more difficult than others! (;->

 

I am an environmentalist

And again (wait for it) a rather difficult and in some ways radical one. As these pages probably make obvious.

 

See particularly renewablegreenwashing or any of my energy issues pages. 

 

I have agendas

We all do. I hope I keep them under rational control. I hope you do the same with yours. And if you find it easy, that's probably bad news. See agendas and how to reveal yourself

 

And I have hobbyhorses which is not the same thing but obviously related.

 

I am a musician

I love to write songs and to play and to sing. I have been in several garage bands that got no commercial recognition but we did gig and we did sometimes get paid! I'm now finally recording my back catalog, and continuing to write.

 

I'm particularly passionate about coaching church drummers, and setting up church drum kits properly. Another long battle!

 

I am single and retired

And likely to stay that way.

 

Other trivia: Also white, male and heterosexual. Some would assume anglo-saxon but actually more celtic.

 

But I respect others. And I didn't just say try to respect. I believe I actually succeed! But I don't always find that easy either. And my observation is, it's far more difficult (and not just for me) than many assume and claim.
