My life's so common it disappears...

I thought again, and now I think I should preface this page with some words from a single true philosopher of life:-

"Be careful," replied Lao Tan, "not to interfere with the natural goodness of the heart of man. Man's heart may be forced down or stirred up. In each case the issue is fatal. By gentleness, the hardest heart may be softened. But try to cut and polish it, and it will glow like fire or freeze like ice. In the twinkling of an eye it will pass beyond the limits of the Four Seas. In repose, it is profoundly still; in motion, it flies up to the sky. Like an unruly horse, it cannot be held in check. Such is the human heart." - Chuang Zi

A very little about me. I am still Hypoman. I am no longer a Scout, because that job seems less discriminatory than I thought it would be, and I'm no longer a sub-editor because I just fell out of doing it for a while, and haven't started again. I was involved, initially, with the h2g2 POST. Lately I've not been called on to do much for the POST, but I still support the idea, and like to help out when and if I can.

By profession I am a librarian1, hence my entries on things like libraries and books, and my interest in the information potential of H2G2. By nature I am a man, hence my entry on sexual frustration. By habit I am devoted to physical fitness, which has an entry all its own. My most recent entry, on Insulin Dependent Diabetes, has been accepted into the 'Guide, and appraisal from my fellow researchers certainly helped its progress. Feel free to take a look at that, or at any of the rest of what I've written. The range of topics represented by these missives cover a few of my interests.

For information on what I have been thinking recently, check my diary entries, which are occasionally fairly well up to date. If you are wanting to talk to me, I tend to be hanging around, and I do check the fora. No button or facility will actually tell you where I am though, so it's probably easier to "discuss" one of my entries than to try to find me - I will pick up the thread, if you say anything that needs to be replied to!

I'm very much afraid that I no longer know enough interesting people to make a links list from my page interesting enough to be bothered with. I'll update this entry, of course, should it come to pass that I suddenly DO know enough people...

1I have only ever been a contractor - I seem to be able to be much more useful here on an ongoing basis! Right now I'm busy being a media operator, because nobody seems to want to employ me as a librarian...
