“To be what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming, is the only end of life.” – Robert Louis Stevenson
I was born in 1961. It was one of the best vintages for Port. I like to think it was a pretty good vintage for people, too.
Why am I runningin3time? Because ‘3 time’ is a musical time; because I have three children; because running, along with singing, is one of the main things I do. Credit to my friends Liz Ryder-Weldon and Jane Collier for coming up with the title for me.
Life has got better and better as I have got older and I feel happier now than I ever remember feeling in my 20s and 30s. Having a child when I was aged 49 was a particular confidence-boost. Clearly though no life is without its sadnesses, and at the end of 2015/early in 2016 I was very low, but with help from friends I clambered back up. As I said to a friend not so long ago “I’ve become the person I always had the potential to become”: some of the bad experiences have brought that about as much as the good.
So my blog is a general ramble about life with three children while trying to write, run/swim/cycle, work, cook and sing, and how I see age as no reason to stop doing anything. The other pages then contain details and examples of some of my freelance work – just in case you want to commission me.
Come in and look around!
