Welcome to my blog!
I'm Robert, also known as The Solitary Walker, and I live in the UK on the Notts-Lincs border. Even though I live in the Midlands, and I'm middle-aged, I'd shudder if you thought me middle-of-the-road. I live on the borderline, remember?
I love reading, writing, walking, travelling, poetry, gardening, cookery, nature, art, music and Marmite. My tastes in literature and music seem to get wider as I get older. I'm also interested in languages, philosophy, myth and religion; and Buddhism in particular holds a strong appeal.
I blog about all of the above, and I really appreciate all the comments on my posts.
One needs . . . What is it that we need? Certainly the more liberated one feels the less one needs. The sage demonstrates it daily, and the idiot too. Just to breathe, to know that you are alive, isn't it marvellous?
The greatest miracle is the discovery that all is miraculous. And the nature of the miraculous is — utter simplicity.
