I have had some readers send me emails recently complaining that this blog is no longer about country life and retirement.
I have news for them. It never was.
You might say that I observe and blog about country life because that provides a background against which major ripples of change stand out in marked contrast.
There is a set of mission statements at the top of the right sidebar which describe my reasons for creating and continuing this weblog.
Here are some extracts from the mission statements:
I write to stimulate thought and possible action, not to prescribe to others what they should believe.
I will be discussing everything from micro-businesses to artists, anything that can affect your future.
The purpose of this weblog is to share knowledge and make it as entertaining as possible.
I have spent a lifetime observing events and looking for reasons. I don’t pretend to have all the answers, but I have observed that there are precursors for every social change. I think of these precursors as ripples in the fabric of life. All you have to do is to observe an interesting ripple and keep an eye on it from time to time, and the next thing you know you are in the midst of a sweeping change that alters the course of your life.
Ripples lead everywhere, which is why my posts cover a wide range of topics. You are free to ignore the ones that disturb you or don’t interest you. There are plenty of others which lead in directions you may wish to pursue. I don’t necessarily follow these topics to completion either.
My interest is in pointing these ripples, trends, paradigm shifts out to those who may have need of the information.
The lesson I should learn from any disappointed readers is that my branding needs work. I’ll do a survey to find what phrase communicates what to expect from reading this blog. You are welcome to contribute your thoughts.
