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.

Rest in Peace, Joe Grant


My Grandad passed away on Saturday. He was 91 years old. Today I shared a poem on AllPoetry.com about the last time I saw him. This follows a poem written over 6 months ago after an afternoon spent talking with him. He will be missed.

"Although death appears a dark hopeless passage, it leads back to the eternal spirit. Therefore death should be viewed not with despair. 
It is a turning over of a soul from our worldly time to the infinite. And this is our comfort, the grave cannot and does not hold them."  -- adapted from William Penn
