Welcome to Life in 361˚. This blog is an 'open journal' - a space where I keep notes on bits & pieces I come across day-to-day - including books and articles I've read that I feel are worth sharing, interesting pictures and photos (I'm a visual learner, you see), random musings - and anything else that happens to catch my eye or ear. It also acts as a kind of 'open experiment' in terms of developing my views and writing skills - and networking with other people of a like-mind.

If you've stumbled upon here randomly, then I suggest you check out my biography and other pages.

Please Note: This site, and the social networking profile pages connected with it, reflect my personal interests & views which do not necessarily represent those of organisations I am affiliated / associated with.

Manchester Musings

Tonight, journeying through the pouring rain on a train from Bolton into Manchester, I felt moved to write a poem, 'New Mamucium'. 

The central Manchester landscape is a wonderful, eerie place - particularly on a wet, misty day - with its mix of red-brick leftovers from the industrial age and glassy, slightly-experimental developments from the information age.
