About

photo-200Ahh … The ‘About’ page. The page for the curious. And curiosity is good. I’m all for curiosity. Life would be boring without it.

I’m Richard Hoare. I live in Queensland, Australia.

One of my favourite pastimes is driving on back roads and relying on my sense of direction to get to where I’m going. If it’s a dirt road, that is all the better.

As John Muir said: “Of all the paths you take in life, make sure some of them are dirt.”

Occasionally I take a wrong turn and end up heading in the wrong direction.

Life was meant to be lived.
Curiosity must be kept alive.

Now, the sensible thing to do would be to turn around and get back on the right track.

But first, I have to see what’s around the next bend and over the next hill. And the next… And the next…

The internet entices me the same way. Following leads and links to see where they take me. Always something new to explore.

This blog is my record of things I’ve explored. Ideas that have interested and intrigued me. And my thoughts on different topics that my curiosity has led me to.

Most of the topics will relate to life and living. And growing and learning each and every day.

As Sherlock Holmes said: “Education never ends, Watson. It is a series of lessons with the greatest for the last.”

I’d love to have you join me and see what intriguing things we can discover. Leave your email in the box above and I’ll keep you up to date.

Richard Hoare.
