I need somewhere to express my random thoughts such that they don’t vanish completely. The attraction of a blog to me is that it is a bit like a journal but doesn’t have blank pages making it clear when you haven’t posted! For a more serious blog please try TheCraftofWords, or if you want to talk Doctor Who, there’s always Red Rocket Rising.
I had a gap (2013 – 2017), but am back with the odd post (perhaps monthly). I sometimes try to find an angle on events in the UK or the world of technology.
In case you are interested, the origin of the name(s) follows:
- Helmstone from the end of Brighthelmstone the original name for Brighton (where I was born)
- Reality Checkpoint an electric lamp (very Narnian) in the middle of Parker’s Piece a park in Cambridge. The picture is a winter’s view from roughly where the lamp is standing. Given most pictures are summer / grassy I was pleased when I found this.
Thanks for your time!
