I started this blog after the Christchurch earthquakes because I needed somewhere to vent my anxiety. I am *terrified* of earthquakes and in the midst of all the aftershocks I felt the need to talk about my fears but I found that people got sick of me doing this. So I started writing them down instead. This helped me considerably.
If anyone would like to see what Christchurch looks like today, watch this: Another year of quake coverage
Eventually we left Christchurch for Auckland and now Scotland, and without the constant aftershocks keeping me awake at night my anxiety naturally drifted away. So this blog morphed into other things that I am interested in, like climate change, ethics, travel, urban planning, cycling and whatever else takes my fancy.
