Hi! This is Adrian Warnock here beginning his blog. Quite why I am starting today is anybody’s guess, but I think it’s something to do with being at the point of major change in my work life. Of course, the world is in flux right now also, and I guess the deluded part of me thinks that, at the very least, I would like to be able to read my thoughts again at some point in the future. Maybe these blogs will be like diaries used to be. But then, who keeps a diary these days? I did keep one years ago. It would be nice to be able to show my children these musings when I am old and grey, assuming that I make it that long, of course!
I really don’t know how regular a blogger I will be, but if my own sudden interest in other people’s blogs is anything to go by, then I might be surprised how many people are interested in the witterings of an aging psychiatrist in London UK. There is something very personal and appealing to the nosy part of me about blogs (and believe me, psychiatrists are nosy—of course we are!!). So maybe someone out there will find this interesting. It will, no doubt, be a ragtag bundle of thoughts, links, news that interests me, and quotes. I guess a blog is putting part of yourself out there for all to see. It almost makes you feel like you are making something immortal. Kind of like bringing a child into the world and doing your bit to counteract future underpopulation in the western world. Maybe blogs are surrogate children for all those childless net citizens.
Which kind of begs the question—What is a father of four doing producing one?! Being a father, I will no doubt bore you all silly at times with funny tales about the kids. I may also muse about psychological suffering, wonder how the Bible can be applied to 21st century life, and generally chat. Now chat is something I’m good at!!! Although this is my first blog, it is not my first website. Sermons and articles that I and others have written are available at Jubilee Church which is the church I am proud to attend. Why not pop over there, take a look, and mail me about something and we will get this show on the road!
