Something New Rising


About this time a week ago I was sitting in London's South Bank with Hannah Nicklin talking about the internet. Because Hannah is not just a friend, she's also ace at theatre and a mega digital brain. And I had gone to her for help. About digital stuff. The internet. Blogging and the like. I was after a fresh eye on what I am doing here online... And she had a load of stuff to say... You will for example have noticed (if you have visited these pages before) that my blog has had a super smart face lift. Well, that's down to Hannah suggesting that I change the 'weird orange and skin colour scheme'…It's amazing how something can look so right until someone points out just how very wrong it is. The orange had to go…

But we didn't just talk about how things look.  Much more importantly Hannah suggested 'you don't always have to write pieces that are finished. You could just share stuff that you're thinking about. People don't always expect to get fully formed reflection. Sometimes they just want to find out what you're thinking about today'...

This had never crossed my mind before.   That it's possible to sometimes use this space as a place to just share thoughts / excitements / inspirations... 

That I could post something about the feeling of being half way there... 

That a half finished nub might be interesting...

That's quite exciting! 

It's like saying sometimes you bake the whole pizza but sometimes it's ok to say 'look, I've been making dough'.

Onward
