The Power Of Words

I love poetry and don’t read it enough and while browsing some second hand books today I came across a book with the simple title ‘Cat Poems’, loving both I naturally picked it up, but expecting it would most likely be many of the same poems I have already, in other collections, many times over;...

Strange Days Have Found Us

I sit down to try and get back to my writing, so much waiting to be finished, waiting to be released and realized, but the workmen at the bottom of the street fill the air with their perpetual racket as they rape some other piece of wild land, pile-driving their way through the ground, disturbing...

I just found out yesterday that Alan Watt died on 4 March 2021; such a shock, so sad, another ‘truth warrior’ gone, the world feels a lesser place without him, especially in such dark times when evil is rising and spreading round the world, we need as many ‘light warriors’ as possible, so it is...

Step Into A Strange, Wonderful World

Step into strangeness Sitting in the grey, misty damp, the horizon a dream-like blur, the still, cold air, a feeling of being out of time, the light never changing from morning through afternoon, just a continual, eternal grey, insubstantial moment; what better atmosphere to be diving into the writing of Bruno Schulz.

Life is, and even when I feel cast adrift, knowing life will never be the same again, things... Continue Reading →

Don’t Wait For It This Is It

I used to think there would come a time when things would be ‘right’, be better and I could then do......whatever.
