My name’s Richard, and I enjoy thinking about what leads to a fulfilling life. I’m confident it’s not monetary wealth, material possessions or fame.

I recently (May 2023) escaped the daily grind after decades of working jobs I don’t like. This blog documents what that journey looks like + my general ramblings, thoughts and anything I find interesting.
