Once more I ask myself why I have created this blog.
I have spent some time discussing this with my son (studying physics at university and just starting his M.Sc. thesis), and about the only conclusion I have reached is summed up by the following quotation which I understand is too old to be definitivly attributed to anyone:
Yet it is far better to light the candle than to curse the darkness
I suppose that my use of this blog is similar to the classical 1950's letter that took the form:
To the Editor of the Local Newpaper.
It has come to my notice that …
Yours faithfuly, a concerned citizen of our good village.
Well, the truth is out, I am I suppose a concerned citizen of our good village, except maybe I should consider myself to be a concerned citizen of our global village.
Is a blog an opportunity to speak out. If so, are there better ways?
