About Me

Welcome to my blog.

I guess you probably want to know a little bit about the person behind the blog.

Fair call, I always like to know who it is I am connecting with.

So, here goes.

I will try my best to keep it succinct.

A brief background on me, Robyn Williams.

I am a Wife, Mother of two FANTASTIC young adult children; whom I adore, and who are my inspiration.

I was born Robyn Hibbitt and married into the Williams clan in 1991.  So I am absolutely no relation to the wonderful and extraordinary, late Mr Robin McLaurin Williams, R.I.P.

Although I wish I was as talented. Yes I have total talent envy.  But I suppose that is to be expected when you share such an amazing name.

I have led a simple but interesting life.  I spent an incredible amount of time as a young person 'town hopping' as my Mother moved from place to place following work.  My Father died when I was 5 and so my Mum did the best she could under the circumstances.

Moving around allot made education difficult, but what I gained in life experience, looking back, has been far more valuable.

Of course, I haven't always seen it that way and it has taken me quite some time to reconcile my disjointed upbringing and lack of education with a quality of life that has mad me the person I am today.

So what kind of person am I?

That I guess is for you to determine as you read my articles, thoughts of the day and attempts at poetry.

How do I see myself?

I am a deep thinker, I like to tear apart an issue and look at it from the inside-out.  This doesn't mean I am not opinionated.  Far from it.

I have my opinions on just about everything.

But I like to think that I can be objective enough to look at the issue from as many perspectives as possible. Of course, I will still put my spin on it.  I am only human after all.

I have always loved the idea of being a writer but I just never thought I had anything worth hearing.  I have tried, on a number of occasions, to write a book.

I have started so many that I actually thought of writing a book that was compiled of all my started projects; I would call it "In the Beginning".  Get it ;)

It was only recently, like 3 months ago (September 2015) that I realised that I am a writer, I just didn't have an audience.  I realized that I don't need to write a book.  I discovered Blogging.

Now, I don't mean I actually discovered blogging, haha.  Of course I knew what it was about.

I read many great blogs, all spruking their knowledge on one thing or another.  I love reading blogs, they are such a great insight into humanity.

No, I mean, I discovered it for myself.

I realised I could write short articles, which meant I could get my thoughts out there without losing my momentum; which is what happened with my book attempts.

So, here I am a few months later sharing my thoughts on the world with you.

I hope you enjoy my writing.
