My perspective

From acorns mighty oaks grow...Pannage started as an illustrated CV of professional life. It now exists as a curation of that work with autobiographical commentary. It also provides an account of continuing personal interests.

The blogposts concern topical issues, personal views and key events. Geo-story is the hub for adventures and various online projects. My sequence of employment is outlined in Work 1 and Work 2.

I have covered activities, people and places. Although seen through my own perspective it is not solely about me but those working relationships and collaborations that have influenced my life. It is necessarily selective and reflects my own passions and slant on the world.

See recent information about interests which include golf, bowls, walking and photography.

A website as museum
“Adults and children sometimes have boards in their bedrooms or living rooms on which they put pieces of paper: letters, snapshots, reproductions of paintings, newspaper cuttings, original drawings, postcards,” John Berger wrote in Ways of Seeing. “Logically, these boards should replace museums.”

Joe Moran puts it this way:
“This website is an archive of the writing I have done over the years, assembled in an effort to persuade myself that I haven’t been entirely wasting my time. ‘A luxurious task, this cobbling up of ancient toil,’ as Ronald Blythe puts it.”

Why write?
“I feel, that when I’m not writing, less well than when I am. When I am writing, I feel that my life is busy. That I’m a creature with a purpose. When I’m not, I feel abit floaty. Sometimes, not always, that’s not a pleasant feeling. It’s something you have to put up with, of course – you can’t write all the time. But you can write a lot of the time; you can work every day.”
