“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second-best time is now.” Old ancient Chinese proverb or made up sound bite by 20th century Anthony Robbins style motivational speaker, the sentiment holds true. Get off your rear end and take action.

One day, I want to write a book. Possibly two or three. However, to make that a reality, I have to start with today. My gut feeling is that I cannot wake up one morning and start writing a book and expect that my writing will be worth reading - God did not bless me with the gift of beautiful, lyrical writing. Writing is something that I need to sit down and painstakingly craft word by word, edit, delete and add to. I hope to produce entries you look forward to reading.

Primarily a digital canvas for practising this craft of writing, this blog will help me explore thoughts and ideas. Some entries will be rough and ragged. Others written in bursts of inspiration - or anger. Hopefully, the majority carefully thought through and structured.

As a tree grows and changes over time, I am open to my thoughts doing likewise. My prayer is that I might be open to being wrong, and humble enough to be taught by those further along the path than I. Hence the name of this blog: Thoughts, not Convictions. As thoughts are open for discussion and sometimes change.

Welcome to the blog ‘Thoughts, not Convictions’, let’s see where this journey takes us.
