Some thoughts


Jan M. van der Molen VI


Being the millennial that I apparently am, opinionating comes natural.

Ergo, a need for space to vent my thoughts with as great a luculence as I can.

One may call it a blog if one likes; I think I would.

Though of course any word written on the internet isn't likely to be more than a whisper in a sea of clamour, I like penning things down as it helps me remember.

I thought of concluding this paragraph by giving 'Scribo Ergo Sum' a mention, but that'd be too cheesy. Oh, well.

And now for the trivial specifics: I am the 6th Jan in the family. The first four having been farmers and craftsmen, the 5th a chemist and I, a Jack of all trades.

So no pressure there. Furthermore, I like to refer to myself as a hybrid northerner. Of both Frisian and Swedish descent; born in 20th century Groningen, Kingdom of the Netherlands. I'm a polyglot, an anti-theist, an aspiring raconteur & historian and my sartorial preferences remain ever aristocratic. 'And what did you say your poison was again?' Thanks for asking: Gin, Fentimans tonic, slice of orange, rosemary—and if in senior company; Cristina Jerez Xérèz Sherry.
