Using wing mirrors is about looking at things from a slightly different perspective, trying to see the bigger picture and questioning some of what we take for granted.
The idea for the site came about after noticing what appear to be indications of changes in our society. Something that is commonplace now would have struck people ten years ago, five years ago or even a year ago as exceptional. I wanted to capture and comment on some of those developments.
I don’t want to be prescriptive about what the site will cover, but expect social and political comment, observations from being out and about, views on art and books and a host of random thoughts.
I can’t promise that everything will be original, although I’ll try, and tweets will be longer than some entries. I can promise that some points will be thrown out to play devil’s advocate. But I hope you find the entries fun as well as providing insight.
Above all, enjoy!
