Welcome to
Words Not Deeds

My family motto is Facta Non Verba (Deeds Not Words), a Victorian textbook pun on our family name!

I like to live up to my motto. However, I am also moved, from time to time, to reflect, write, edit and publish.

I write about our relationship with money, humanity, spirituality, local affairs, and I keep a gratitude journal.

I also write about books that inspire or infuriate me.

Please comment if I inspire or infuriate you, and subscribe (below) to receive notifications of new posts. Thanks.
