I’m a student of Sri Chinmoy, based in Canberra, Australia. I am a writer (a great job if you don't have a mortgage and only eat a few times a month), and some of my work can be found on my writer's website.
You can also read my blog, The World of Noivedya, which talks about everything connected (however vaguely) to the spiritual life.
My other blog, Wishful Thinking, talks about everything else.
I have also written articles about Sri Chinmoy Centre activities.

THINGS I DON’T LIKE (so don't expect any links!)
The 30km point in a marathon when someone says “Almost finished!” and you’re not
People who are mean to other people for no reason
People who punch other people for no reason
People who act unreasonably for no reason
People who stand up while you’re watching a really powerful scene in a video (like the final scene of Dead Poet’s Society) and jump up and down shouting “Awoogah! Awoogah!” because they think they’re being really clever.
(Fortunately, I don’t know anyone like this – but just thinking about the possibility makes me mad!)
Daleks (I don’t care if you’re from an evil, tyrannical, alien race. Going around shouting “Exterminate!” in a grating metallic voice just isn’t very nice, now is it?)
