I’m re-posting this piece in light of an ensuing discussion about language that my previous post has sparked. I want to highlight that any notion of truth validated by linguistic exchange is vague at best and relies on mutual trust within a given social group, be they a body of scientists, or you and me […]
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 […]
In a ‘Universe’ where everything exists simultaneously, doubt is what drives change and gives us the illusion of choice and of linear continuity, or ‘Time’. Because everything is simultaneous, nothing happens by accident.
Inspired by my very wise friend and fellow blogger Argus [a.k.a. The Dog] 🙂
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!

This week’s theme: Curves I love architectural curves, and there is nothing like Moorish architecture in particular to make me go weak at the knees!
Wind Wind passes my ears; I feel its breath touch my soul; Whispering tenderness Through the eves of an apple tree As leaves float down to kiss The earth.

Flesh and Faith Of saints and marching men, The law-abiding tomes, And subscribers of faith. Flesh be blessed, And faith be atoned. Here within lies Secret’s quest; Your journey’s end, And heart’s rejoice. A gift bestowed Upon your soul, To heal thee well, And make you whole. Be well, and be aware. Make blessed Your […]
The Tree Gods – Tall trees think your answers up into the skies Where clouds form full and thunderous above your wise leaves And the living libraries of your sturdy trunks; with deep roots Reaching far down into the psyche of the earth and all that is. Synaptic charges ricochet from earth to sky through […]
