Welcome to Mirth and Melancholy, a blog to make you smile and one to make you think. Or violently disagree. If after reading here, you do neither, then this blog is not for you. Did you know that there are approximately 180 million blogs? Each one wants some of your precious time. So do I.
But only if your visit here makes you laugh or think. Or cry for that matter.
Posts will be weekly. My comedy will appear as permanent pages under Smile or Smirk on the menu. The posts will include anecdotes and opinion, primarily addressing the central theme which dominates my every waking hour: theodicy. Exploring the reasons why God has written a story in which human suffering features so prominently. I have a few thoughts on these related themes too: Justice. Equality. Love. Sport. To name just a few. My first post is a comedy piece called Beginner Dentists. Enjoy.
Oh my gosh. Does this make me a blogger? What a hideous word. I feel like I’m just a whisker from some very environmentally-unfriendly activity, or well, I’d rather not say . . .
Finally, please share. It has taken me years to get here, so stymied have I been by the technology. But now I’m here, I’m learning what to do. I’m sure you know so much more than me. Tweet. Re-tweet. Post to Facebook. Can you Re-Facebook? I don’t think so, but don’t worry, they’ll work out how to do that eventually. Enough said.
Share the love, people, and make my stats hit the heights. Many thanks.
