I am currently working on an extended piece of writing, entitled Ernest & Noble. Adopting the form of the Socratic dialogue, the work focuses on the absurdity atheism faces when presented with the human requirement for spiritual meaning. Written specifically for militant atheists and people who hold similarly absolutist world-views, my ambition is to break the polemical nature of the current religio-political climate. In doing so, I also hope to make abstract philosophy accessible and interesting for anyone who might read it.
I recently began volunteering at RSPB Broadwater Warren. This wonderful reserve is relatively new to the RSPB estate. Yet their impact has, in ecological terms, been almost immediate. Impressively, they have already seen a return of both nightjar and woodlark. Furthermore, I discovered that adders are also beginning to thrive again when I found a shedded adder skin amongst the heather recently. My hope is to help the RSPB increase the diversity of their bumblebee and butterfly populations here. More than anything, however, I would love to see the dartford warbler take up residence again.
As well as getting my hands dirty onsite, I am also an authorised collector of RSPB pin badge donations.
