Contested Realities is about conflicts – of ideas and views. It is about notions of development, change and progress. Much of the writings here concern themselves with everyday experiences and how some of us choose to navigate them.
In addition to the above, there is writing on outdoor sports (ultrarunning, cycling, mountaineering), K-12 teaching; education, farming and a bit of academic research in development studies, public policy and gig economy.
I keep a log of reading, music and occasional sentences that float on Everyday Shorts.
