A blog by Simon Horrocks. A bifocal blog that provides a window on my work interests (higher education) and my greatest passion (music).

I have called it 'follow the dot' after lyrics from one of my favourite songs, Jóga, by one of my favourite artists, Björk:

All these accidents
That happen
Follow the dot

So much of what we do in life is determined by accident, by coincidence. But we also have agency; we can choose whether to follow the dot or not. We can choose which adventures we want to pursue. Up to you if you read anything I write here but, if nothing else, I hope you might watch the beautiful video below.
