Welcome to Thoughts and Musings! I wanted to create a space where I could speak freely on issues that were bothering me. I wanted a forum where ideas and topics could be explored openly in the hope of growing a deeper understanding of the world we live in, of the roles we occupy, of how we influence our surroundings only to have them inadvertently influence us. In an increasingly interconnected world it is imperative we do what we can to bridge the gaps of misunderstanding, to ensure we are asking important and often difficult questions all the time, and above all, to ensure we are keeping ourselves informed. This journey has been years in the making and while it is impossible for a single person to provide a complete view of the world, my biggest hope is that we can learn from each other as we fervently apply that most delightful and central of human qualities: our burning curiosity.
