"What's all this then?"

Hello, my name is Matthew Prosser, and this is where I write in my spare time. “A Place to Stand” is taken from the famous quote attributed to Archimedes of Syracuse, a hero of mine.

δῶς μοι πᾶ στῶ καὶ τὰν γᾶν κινάσω, or rather, “give me a place to stand and I shall move the earth.”

I believe this to be true, not only in my life but also in the life of us all.

This online narrative was started on Journalspace in February 2003 and has taken various incarnations and served various purposes. It migrated to WordPress in 2009 and has been here ever since.

At present, it’s merely a way to chronicle some of the things I think and experience during the course of my existence.

Welcome.
