What is a theme?  It could be something serious, something daft, a soapbox issue, a social concern… whatever.

It may be that I notice a pattern in the topics I write about, or maybe I deliberately set out to explore something. When I notice a theme beginning to emerge I’ll be asking for your input, seeking your views, opening up the communications so that you can join in the (fun) debate.

You’ll have noticed that I have turned off the comments to my posts (Update: Not any longer. Since posting this comments are now ON). This is because open comment spaces attract so a lot of spam and I don’t have the time or the enthusiasm to keep cleaning it up.

Each time a theme crops up though, you’ll be able to join the debate by going to the Forum page (soon to be established, not yet visible, I’ll let you know).
