We all live on the front line – wherever we are, there is our own front line, whether it is hazardous, safe, exciting or dull. For some people it is a war zone – a literal front line in the old fashioned sense of the word. Nowadays, the front line isn’t some remote location. Increasingly, wars, famines and pandemics are asymmetric – they happen anywhere and everywhere. And that puts each and every person on the planet on the front line. The intention is for this blog to be a record of my personal front line. A record of the events which shape my own front line in life – global events and lived experiences written about from a personal viewpoint. I hope you find it provocative and stimulating. And I hope you’ll share your own front line experiences.
