INCEPTION

I am going to tee off with a definition and a quotation:

in•cep•tion ( n-s p sh n)
n.
The beginning of something, such as an undertaking; a commencement.

Make visible what, without you, might perhaps never have been seen.

The world is full of noise. And personally, I resent it. I find that most of the static that intrudes on my head-space is driven by the intent of some hidden, sneaky person wanting to get their hands into my wallet by inducing me to consume. When I go to see a film, or when I pick up a book in a bookstore, I’m always thinking that I’m putting my time and my attention-span in the hands of that writer or director and I expect them to tell me something. If I get cliches or posturing, I immediately switch off. To be honest, I’d prefer something offensive or anti-social; at least it engages me.

I want you to know, dear reader, I am as aware as you are that in the age of the internet there are even more voices competing for your attention and more sinkholes than ever before to suck away your energy for no return. For this reason, I intend only on lodging things here which I think are worthy of your time. No rattling on about the minutiae of toothpaste or the irritating behaviour of my relatives. If you choose to switch on my light, I give you my ardent promise that I will do my utmost to reveal something you have never seen before. And will hopefully be pleased with.

Thank you for taking the time to open up my blog.
