I’m a Father and Husband with a passion for Photography and Creative Writing. Enjoying life’s simple pleasures.
Over the past 15 years or so I’ve ran blogs, websites, social media accounts and everything in-between on an eclectic mix of subjects. Boxing, Photography, Creative Writing, Vintage Lifestyle, Information Technology and owning an Allotment! After a major turnaround in my health back in 2013 I even started a blog documenting living with Microvascular Coronary Heart Disease (having just been diagnosed with it myself at the time)
All these ventures were relatively successful and enjoyable chapters in my life. Nowadays, however, I am looking for something different. Having a somewhat limited lifestyle due to my Microvascular Coronary Heart Disease, I have finally found my “New Normal” I am not defined by my condition, it is merely part of what makes me who I am!
Gregory Porter sums it up perfectly in his song “Painted on Canvas” where he likens us to a blank canvas that is painted on by our experiences etc. The opening verse goes;
“We are like children
We’re painted on canvases
Picking up shades as we go
We start off with gesso
Brushed on by people we know
Watch your technique as you go
Step back and admire my view
Can I use the colors I choose?
Do I have some say what you use?
Can I get some greens and some blues?”
