David has had a lifelong passion for writing. As well as authoring on this website he is a contributor to the on-line forums for the HSS http://www.humanism-scotland.org.uk/ and the BHA http://www.humanism.org.uk/home and also writes specially commissioned articles for magazines and various professional blogs.

He is interested in screen-writing and storytelling as a medium for the teaching and development of moral, spiritual and philosophical insights, has studied Philosophy and Theology at The University of Edinburgh and is plans to continue his education by being open to new and upcoming mind enhancement tools as well as more traditional avenues such as the University environment.

He has had Management and Project Management Training and Experience which has been enhanced with Counselling Skills and a variety of experiences in dealing with staff welfare and needs.

He has extensive experience in the administration and clerical field as well as teaching, and has participated in award winning work-place schemes and Quality Assurance processes.

He is an individual who believes that we are all essentially powerless over the final outcomes of our lives and can only swim with the tides we find ourselves in.

His character is notable for its willingness to take responsibility for whatever aspect of work he is involved in; whether it is writing, daily administrative procedures or longer term strategic and philosophical goals.

He also plays a little; and watches great TV shows such as LOST, Millennium, True Blood and In-Treatment and at long last- Life On Mars-which is right up his moral street.

I Am Talking About Good Frustrations
There are days when it just seems that there is nothing that can be done. We are literally tearing our hair out in frustration because no answer seems to be available. Yet it is beneficial to remember that at these times, the perception or even the fact that we are…

Lady Gaga Emails Fan to Praise Anti-bullying Campaign
Bullying for me, essentially means the practice of reducing one person's life to a living hell so that another's can be less hell-like. This might sound melodramatic, but I can guarantee you that there are men, women and children out there whose lives are hell because of the phenomenon of…

A New Tone; The Value Of A Thought for Today
One of the good things about getting into the habit of starting your day with a ‘thought for today’ is that it can plant the seeds that might make today better than it otherwise would be. A lot of us get up and think about something that is similar to…

A Message to the Younger Writer
People who go on to write for either pleasure or profit often began to write early on in life. Not always of course. Sometimes it is quite late in life before they ever take time to write poetry, fiction, or articles. Often they are retired and seeking to fill their…

A Little Searching for Examples; A Way to Lessen Resentment

Caution And Fear In Interactions; A Suggestion That Might Help
Sometimes I do things and the repercussions lead me to wishing that I had never done it. For example I recently approached someone to ask them a question.

The Least the Reader Deserves; The Writer is Not A Businessman
Writing ought to be born from love for the reader, rather than for love from the reader. Many of us do things to get rather than to give. For example, some might write for the potential fame it might bring, whilst others might write for the help it can give.…
