I’m a guy who always wanted to be a writer, until I had to time to do so, and realized I had no idea what to write. It’s freeing, in a way. I have an English degree, a voracious hunger for books and knowledge, and the glory of the internet to help me channel it.

So what is this blog about? That remains to be seen. I chose the name for three reasons: my interest in the natural world, my eclectic range of interests, similar to the magpie’s love of interesting objects, and because I am totally unlike a small, flitty bird. If some grand theme or direction presents itself (or is offered for cash) I will seriously consider it; I like sparklies too.
