Nepotism is a form of favouritism granted in various fields, including business, politics, entertainment, sports, religion and other activities. It has been criticised since ancient times by several philosophers, including Aristotle and Confucius. The ancient Indian philosopher Valluvar condemned nepotism as both evil and unwise.
I'm originally from Liverpool and worked as a national magazine journalist for more than 30 years before suffering a stroke at age 53. I started blogging as part of a neuro-rehabilitation programme and wrote the very first entries with one finger of my disabled left hand. Later, art became another therapy for me at Headway East London's Submit To Love studios. I blog regularly and volunteer as a teaching assistant, coaching schoolchildren in aspects of journalism.
