well it's been a heady couple of days...to say the least! The forum is up and running, or should I say speeding along like a runaway train. It seems we are in a constant state of evolving, behind the scenes.
I'm really grateful for all the encouragement and wholehearted support our members have shown.
I couldn't have hoped for a better start to our new project.
The essay I've posted below was part of an introduction I gave as a lecture in Japan. It is a very personal, and idiosyncratic view perhaps and as such I didn't feel it appropriate to post my philosophy on the ironbrush forum.
It might provoke some discussion though, so please feel free to have your say.
