He’s Back -Ginge Take Two

Something’s gone wrong, something’s changed. My heart breaks. He’s back. I’m so, so sad for him, I’m gutted to find him once again in the same situation, it’s not fair. Since June last year, all through the summer he was a regular visitor, part of our tribe. He turned up suddenly, simply appeared one day,... Continue Reading →


He’s there. Glimpses, then gone, but I see you. Sneaking through the shadows, dodging the open spaces, peering from hidey holes, running for cover. I see you. I feel you. Survivor, street scuttler, night walker, hidden crier, bony wanderer. All weathers, alone, you wander the streets, round and round but will not trust. Your gaunt... Continue Reading →

Animal Consciousness

I have loved animals all my life and always known they had consciousness, I never doubted it. Most people have probably seen this by now, but I have just watched it again and it never fails to move me, overwhelm me; it is so profound, so moving, so powerful, if you’ve not seen it, watch...

‘Tis the Season to Be Jolly…..

The glow of festive, magical lights, the haunting echo of carols, the jingle of bells, a small village putting on such a festive experience, beautiful, right???............. But it all rings hollow in its fake glow of love, everywhere you look there is cruelty and death, but virtually no one sees it, blinded by the illusion,... Continue Reading →

Losing Ground.

Because I care, I’m a threat. Because I get upset, I’m extreme. Because I love, I go too far. Because I see the truth, I’m trouble. Because I live from my heart, I’m provocative. Because I want peace, I’m aggressive. Because I am passionate, I am offensive. Because I want freedom, I’m a terrorist. Because... Continue Reading →
