Why write this blog?

Several months ago, my brother-in-law sent me a Youtube video about Plato’s Allegory of The Cave. It talks about less confrontational ways to react to people who see the world differently to you and it’s where my blog name came from.

Climate change is my greatest fear and my greatest passion and I find it hard to cope with people not taking it seriously. So I write in the hope that I can say what I think without being pushy or didactic. Writing can also help me find my way to understanding other people better.

I write because I love it. I write because it’s one thing I can do that might reach the broader world. I’m not on social media because I find it depressing and because I think it controls people. But I can write about issues that are important or interesting to me and maybe people will connect with what I say.
