About Keith...

I like to think I'm a controversialist, catalyst and facilitator, quietly enabling others to develop by providing different ideas and views of the world.

I was born in central London in the early 1950s, and spent my childhood at Waltham Cross (just north of London) which is an area absolutely full of history -- from before 1066 (King Harold) right up to the present day (Posh Spice and Olympic cyclist Laura Trott).

I initially trained as a research chemist, with a PhD in chemical spectroscopy. As there were no science research jobs in the mid-1970s, I spent my working life in IT, finally retiring as a senior project manager.

In 2000 I was one of the founders of the Anthony Powell Society (https://anthonypowell.org/) and for 18 years was Secretary and a Trustee. I'm still involved, although not now as an executive. I'm also currently the chairman of my primary care doctor's patient group.

I have wide-ranging interests including photography, family history, science, cats, fish, nudism & naturism, mysticism & comparative religion, English language, English history, natural history, old churches -- and a lot more.

However I cannot make myself interested in the performing arts, climate change (yes it's vitally important but, for me, dull), TV, cars, politics, and most current sport.

My wife is a retired museum curator. Somehow we've been married for 44 years! We live in Greenford, about 12km west of central London with our three cats.

Any card of your choice is good, but I especially like cards about:
• old buildings, especially churches
• Buddhism
• stunning landscapes, trees and woodland
• science
• nudism / naturism
• photography
• cats, foxes, squirrels and fish
• natural history
• anything about your village, city or country.
I'm happy to receive oversize or non-standard cards; and I'm OK with nudity and erotica (as long as the postal service are!).
I'm not a fan of advertising cards, cards in envelopes, stickers, washi tape or small gifts.
Please write your name clearly on your card.

I always try to find a card, and write a message, which is appropriate and interesting for the recipient. I apologise in advance as I almost always print my message -- my handwriting has always been dreadful; I think school must have put an arthritic spider in my inkwell.😊
