2 things I saw today…

Keeping with the spirit of my New Years (+6 months) resolution and coupled with a clever idea of making lots of very small blog entries I would like to tell you about two things I saw today…

1. Whilst walking to collect the kids I watched a car driver stop on a roundabout and then reverse around the roundabout until he could reverse up a one way street! Fortunately the road was clear and it was a good think also that he had enough road sense left to stop at a pedestrian crossing for the poor man who was frozen in disbelief at what he could see. This would be a quirky story if if was not the 3rd Belgian motorist I have observed reversing on roundabouts in 3 years!

2. I saw my first Digitally projected film at the cinema today. I have to say it was beautiful. A pin sharp picture, no artefacts and no flickers of dust etc. that you get on ordinary projectors. Lovely. I saw Shrek 3 with the kids. The film was fabulous in its visual detail – if you look closely the clothing is very real and folds in such a realistic fashion you will not see it because it is so ordinary! However I could not suspend my disbelief for long as it was such a damp squib of a film and sadly not that funny. But it looked good!

First past the post

Kevi's HeadFinally I feel like I have caught up with the rest of the world by writing my first blog. Quite what I am going to write here remains to be seen but I imagine I will use this space to hew out some rough thoughts that I will share will errm, whoever reads it I guess.

A little about me. I am 36. I am English. I am married to the wonderful Nicki and have two children Sam (6) and Ellie (4). I am a Christian and work for Youth With A Mission as the director for the YWAM Brussels base. I am passionate about loads of things from the Arts, books, Computing (and community/Free software) and Christianity and being relevant in my expression of my faith.

I live here in Brussels since January 2004 and love the city and the people, Belgian and foreign who make this city their home. I enjoy a good Belgian beer and you may discover a few more posts about that too.

Well that is it for now. Thought I had better get this started.

Oh yes. One more thing. I intend to write a bit about my thought working with YWAM. I would like to state that these are my own thoughts and don't represent the official view of YWAM!!!!
