My first blog....
Nothing strange there, in fact probably quite boring to you. But before you leave I have something more to tell you…
In July last year I was in London with my University colleagues to promote our work. Little did I know that my world, one of designer furniture and generally what 22 year olds do, would clash with that of a suicide bomber. I suffered head injuries in the Piccadilly line bomb. I could be anyone, even you, but I found myself in the wrong place at the wrong time. I’m not planning writing about that day, it was nearly 7 months ago and it’s all been said before. Besides, the whole point of this blog is to talk about the present and the future, not the past.
Why am I starting to write now? Because although I’ve had a life changing experience, only now is it changing my life. Better late than never!
So what do I make of all this? I’m not sure, and am hoping blogging on here might help me discover that myself. There are a few people writing about what happened that day, how they’re moving on from it and how their experiences have changed their lives so why shouldn’t I? I’m not a writer, a journalist or have any real inclination to start spouting about politics, I’m just an ordinary person, who has experienced something extraordinary. Everyone has their own take on things, their own angle. This blog is my angle.
I believe these blog sites are a kind of virtual soap-box, but at the moment I don’t have a lot to shout about. Soon I might do, hopefully about something utterly ordinary like a great design exhibition I’ve been to or a successful presentation to a client. Watch this space.
