I cannot help the world, if it cannot help itself, When it takes offence at the most minor infraction, While murder is committed by the ton and for the betterment of all, While eyes are turned and guile is misdirected. Rigidity in thinking only makes hypocrites of us, Rendering us inept and incapable of being […]
I realise it might be time to stop mucking about and put my money where my mouth is. I’ve become relatively comfortable sitting on the impartial fence watching and participating in the odd debate, that if I’m honest has very little bearing if any on my beliefs. As a reflection of who I am as […]
A life cannot be defined in linear terms, whether measured with a piece of string from A to B, or with words strung together in a pithy line, or one word statement. A life cannot be given value by words alone, or the ambient temperature that stirs the senses and the hormones that reveals an […]
I think that people’s intelligence should be measured by degrees of gullibility rather than cognitive function. You would get a more accurate overview of trends in society and world events. I think it would reveal that self-preservation rates higher than common sense.

The only person I’ve met in a very long while who thinks like me… and believe me that’s worth noting… it doesn’t happen often let me tell you! [Note to Dog: I know my comparing myself to you at all may rub your fur up the wrong way and may make your little paws a bit clammy, but you’ll get over it… because I am the O’Grumpy One and I say so]
It’s funny how you can come across a complete stranger, know them for all of a few seconds, but somehow they manage to unravel you, like a ball of thread that had been all knots and intricate patterns held together by something. Then all of a sudden that something disappears, somewhere I cannot see or […]
This is me flying by the seat of my pants as they say, experimenting with channelling a poem on the spot on camera. Despite the odd hiccup, the imagery in my own mind was very strong and so was the sentiment. I’d be interested to know if any of you can feel the energy […]
I’m days away from being a year older, which is a strange thing to say as I spent all year becoming a year older in daily increments since my last diabolical but enchanted birthday. If anything, because of the events of my last b-day, I should probably be avoiding making a fuss at all on […]
