I'm a writer, life-long learner, lover of good thought, interesting ideas, progressive debate. I am a fiction novelist working on getting published. I follow politics from local to international always wanting to understand our world. I've been a Chartered Accountant since 1991, now called a Charted Professional Accountant. My family lives in the wilds of Grey County with our many cats and dogs. We are amateur astronomers, environmentalists, lovers of nature. My blog will be to discuss issues I'm concerned about.
