About the author
My name is Kona Macphee. I live in a small town in the centre of Scotland, surrounded by a wonderful diversity of landscapes, and I’m glad to be here.
I’m a poet and a geek, not always in that order. I’m an introvert, but I’m not shy. I’m a sometimes-less-than-adequate parent, step-parent and partner, but I keep trying.
I love creating things and inspiring others to embrace their own creativity. I get a buzz from playing music, going running and giving poetry readings.
I wish I could finish every day with a little more clarity than I started it.
About the site
The blog that elusive clarity launched in December 2010. The site is usually updated on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. If there’s an overarching theme that draws all the posts together, it’s the question of how to live. I don’t have an answer to that, but I sure do have plenty more questions.
My own posts have three categories.
Simplicities: this is for attempts to simplify my life – lifehacks or mindhacks, if you will.
Quandaries: this is for ongoing dilemmas, where I can’t see an obvious way forward.
Vagaries: this is for everything else.
In addition, I’m glad to present the weekend special features six things, a micro-interview series with interesting and creative people, and sunday best, your recommendations for personally significant books, films, music, art etc.
I’d be delighted to receive your proposals for guest posts; please see the contributions page for more.
Reader comments are welcomed; in particular, I’d love to hear about your own explorations in the gentle art of how to live.
