New Year's resolutions

I don’t normally do these — resolutions that is — but this year one just sort of popped up, namely:

Get on with it 

It has the attraction of being fairly non-specific, while simultaneously addressing my main problem, namely a tendency to engage in wool gathering — which the dictionary defines as indulgence in aimless thought or dreamy imagining.

Anyway, while my New Year’s resolution has broad scope (being applicable to everything, from tidying the cellar to being more sociable), for you dear readers, the fruit will be dished up on these very pages. I have a number of topics waiting in the wings, including:


Identity theft


What is Life?

… as well as a selection of lighthearted extracts from Horsley’s Over the Wall magazine.

If you have a particular preference as to which of these delicacies you would like to sample first, please let me know.

In the meantime, here’s wishing you a very happy (and productive) New Year


  1. If you could concentrate on "What is Life?" I'd be very grateful.

    Yes I agree. "What is life?" would be very useful.

    Those suffering anticipatory anxiety awaiting the Wilsonian view of What is Life; may seek some solace reading Margulis & Sagan book What is Life?
