There are some who still call me David.
I was born in central Scotland in 19 (cough)4 and in that order.
Art, music and writing are my enduring habits. Art in particular was the subject I did reasonably well in at school: that and truancy. It wasn’t until later while studying for a couple of degrees as a mature student that I discovered I was also reasonably competent in other disciplines. One more degree and I would’ve been a 70’s pop trio.
I’ve held a number of one man art exhibitions – I believe he enjoyed them – and had my work published in newspapers, magazines and – of all places – a Russian college text book along with an essay I wrote about colour blindness.
I’ve also had an ebook/paperback published titled Unlocking Carol’s Smile, which a reader astutely described as ‘faction’ rather than fiction. Drawn from over five years working in the field the main theme of the book deals with a social condition, as one reviewer noted, ‘we’d rather avoid’ talking about.
The blog consists of childhood, adolescent and adult recollections etc.
