This blog was established in 2012 to provide a place for the musings of a 50 something male as he contemplated “What’s Next”. In 2015 “What’s Next” began and is now very much a reality.
My time as a full-time professional is complete and life as a retired partner of a professional service firm has begun. I mused over whether my time would be filled as a student, academic, writer, advisor, traveller or a bit of each? It seems that it will be largely consumed by attempting to complete a PhD with I also hope time for writing, travelling and mentoring.
I am passionate about music, travel, sport and research and I want this blog to reflect that passion through my regular updates in particular my passion for travel.
I always wanted to write a great song but have had to settle for listening to music at every opportunity, whether it be Springsteen, Tori Amos, The Beatles, Regina Spektor, Les Miserables, Country (yes that’s right) and pretty much everything else except rap.
When it comes to travel I am late comer to this passion but now can’t get enough of it. I don’t think it’s possible to spend enough time in Italy!
As “What’s Next” becomes reality, I hope that my 60th birthday will come with a nicely bound and successfully completed PhD thesis!
Me with my favourite person in the world!
My views are my own.
