On the word 'diaspora' and literal meanings

The word diaspora comes from the Greek: diaspeirein meaning disperse, from dia, meaning across speirein , meaning‘scatter'

So here I have taken the literal meaning of the word: this blog is intended to be a scattering of thought gathered from my everyday life.
I may talk rubbish; I don't know much about some of the stuff I'm going to talk about here.

The point of the emphasis on diaspora is that this is not a focussed and researched blog.
This is just a record of thoughts, ideas, and other things I picked up on the day and found interesting enough to remember.

The intention of this is to help me remember all the things I learn outside of the classroom.
Also, I hope it will inspire you.
