Classical Foundations.  Private tuition in Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire

Time to celebrate rather than moan - a confession!

I had revelation today. It's been a long time coming but from now on, my articles will seek out the positive and accentuate the great, the wonderful, the beautiful.

Criticising is an easy sport, and I am, as a philosopher and educator, highly concerned about some trends we're in - ranging from diet to curriculum to the mass media and environmental issues; but we can all gripe, and I gripe enough about gripers...but it's time to change.

I'm a very positive chap: I look for the positive in most things, except perhaps when I write, when I get the demons that plague my mind and our culture out on paper and try to constrain them, like a Chinese painter in a fairy tale, who manages to chain the magic dragons that come alive on his murals by painting chains on them!

There is much to moan about - people, idiocy, governments, taxes, pollution, pharmaceutical products, tv, violent computer gaming - but there's so much more to celebrate than to damn. Our history books are replete with wars - but not the joys and successes of every day people.

So here's my promise - from now on, I shall only look for the positive for the Educational Thoughts and for my other columns.

Let me know if I fail and I shall go and hug my boys and get that positive outlook again. Talking of which, they're playing outside and I'm going to join them!
