Dear reader, This is not really a blog. It is just a place where I can put stories/essays/articles that I have written when they are more or less finished. It will be shamelessly self-indulgent and very infrequently updated. There will be a bit of a Middle Eastern bias, as I lived in Syria for three years. The general themes will likely be music, language, stories and public transport. There may be old writing, new writing, and writing I started years ago and have come back to more recently.
