Politics, religion and science have no real place in this blog's scope?
Who am I?
- Dylan Wrathall
- An individual, of no great importance, who is unable to the see the natural world as a place for competition. I catch fish, watch birds, derive immense pleasure from simply looking at butterflies, moths, bumble-bees, etc - without the need for rules! I am Dylan and this is my blog - if my opinions offend? Don't bother logging on again - simple!

I am confident that the vast majority of visitors, to this blog, will recognise that I am of strongly held opinions - on many subjects. Whilst I retain the right to these thoughts, they appear in my writings only when I have the requirement to support an idea or issue. Since the demise of the old "Nonconformist" blog I have deliberately attempted to steer clear of subjects which I know will cause others to be offended - I'm tired of the fight. "Of Esox" was started because I wished to share my experiences of a simple life, the majority spent with family, my passion for the outdoors and the wildlife which I encounter along the way.
At present there are events conspiring to disrupt this situation, no-one's fault, just how things are panning out; I will have to deal with them as they arise. So I apologize for that removed post of yesterday. I wrote it, late last night and, after an uneasy sleep, removed it first thing this morning. I just knew that people would be offended - no longer my purpose! Politics, science and religion; we can't avoid them in any aspect of our daily lives - just I don't need to get involved, within a blogging context, and should have known better. So to all those who've recently made the effort to comment - I ain't packing it in, any time soon. Living life in a goldfish bowl ain't always easy - blogging is just that and I will continue to offer my slant on the world as, and when, the situation allows. Life on "Easy Street" hasn't quite delivered what I was expecting!
