What’s the point? Taking a break in search of answers…

This Blogger has gone in search of answers. Back...whenever

“The long run is a misleading guide to current affairs. In the long run we are all dead.” – John Maynard Keynes

I’m taking a break from blogging and other forms of public engagement. When I come up for fresh air, I might occasionally tweet – see the twitter feed on the right hand column for such output, but again, don’t bank on it. I have to sort out some Big Ideas in my mind, and seek answers to compelling questions.

Every blogger needs a break. This is mine. We’ll be back as soon as….inspiration permits.

Meanwhile, read this essay that asks – and answers – the Big Question: Is Life Worth Living?

A science writer by training, I've worked as a journalist and communication specialist across Asia for 30+ years. During this time, I have variously been a news reporter, feature writer, radio presenter, TV quizmaster, documentary film producer, foreign correspondent and journalist trainer. I continue to juggle some of these roles, while also blogging and tweeting and column writing.

One thought on “What’s the point? Taking a break in search of answers…”

  1. A little over 20 years, I knew an eager young man who told me that he was going in search of his real self. That young man isn’t so young any more, and by now I would expect him to have found what he was looking for. Perhaps the quest for the meaning of life is more labyrinthian and confusing than he or I imagine.
