I have always wanted to write but have only started doing that in the last 5 years. Hubpages helps a bit to set goals and flex the writing muscles.
I have been a bus driver, lecturer in Philosophy, lived alone in the mountains in the Limpopo Province of South Africa. From 1986 to 2005 I was a researcher in road and transport safety - so one can say that turned out to be my profession.
Lately I have discovered my inner activist. A mining company wanted to start prospecting the pristine Groot Marico River in the North West Province of South Africa. I realised that money (mining) and power (government) together have little conscience as to conservation of scarce water resources of our country.
My interests are nature conservation, literature and poetry, philosophy, corporate social responsibility - in fact I easily get distracted to delve into interesting information and ideas.
