I am Alex and this is my site.

Since I began blogging in 2015, I’ve written a few thousands words. My writing here is shaped by the vagaries of time and my own preoccupations. Accordingly, a lot of the articles here are quirky, not to say obscure, and new readers may benefit from some guidance.

I have selected a handful of articles in each of the main topics I write about. There is more variety – and much weirdness – to be found on this blog, but these articles should give you an idea of whether you should read more or not. I hope you do.
