Who on Earth would name their blog after a psychic rabbit? Cue me!
For the sake of this blog, I am Mr. Fiver. A pseudonym named after one of the main characters of the epic British adventure novel, Watership Down. Fiver was the little brother of Hazel, and the two lead the escape of a group of rabbits from their original warren through unknown territory towards a better life.
It is a tragic irony that today, as I was writing this very post to be the first on this blog, the news about the death of Richard Adams, the author of Watership Down, reached the news. Richard Adams has been a great inspiration to me, and it is with the greatest respect that I have named this blog after one of his great characters.
In fact, I owe even more than just a blog name to his characters. Back in the days, when online dating sites were a brand new thing (Year 2000), I met my wife through one of them. My profile name back then was named after Fivers older brother, Hazel.
Just as Fiver had a vision of a better life for himself and his friends, so will this blog will be my contribution to the quest for a better life. First of all for me and my family – but hopefully also as an inspiration to others.
I hope you will follow along in the years to come! If you’re interested, you can read more about me and my family in the oddly named About Us page.
