Walking to Tesco recently the energy of people that passed by was tangible, almost sparking…

“We all care about you, we will keep caring until and beyond, [when] you are strong enough to care for and about yourself…” kind words… I like to make a note of stuff that sparks my synapses, and here is where I occasionally share my rough thoughts. I was cycling home the other day and […]
An agreement between people to do or not do something specific. I’m currently reading ‘Logging Off’ by Nick Spalding, where midlife man ‘Andy’ starts a sixty-day digital detox. Andy sort of makes a covenant with himself to do stuff differently. It’s amusing, I’ll let you know if it’s life changing. But, it’s the subject of […]
Where am I? Where are we, when the longest queue in the small-town-village is the queue for the bookies, and the popular entertainment of choice is escapist superhero mystery & myth action movies? I am thankful – I sit here in my garden, what I have right now are memories of a good holiday, a […]
Perhaps it’s about feeling?
Along with thousands of others, over the isolation period, we took a weekly dose of Grayson Perry’s Art Club on Channel 4. Thanks, Grayson and Philipa, it’s been a very welcome tonic. It was a little bit silly, it was a little bit odd… It was the last episode this week. Art is about mixing […]

Pulse, and breath…
“Here we go round the mulberry bush on a cold and frosty morning…” I wonder if Van Gogh sang this in the asylum as he painted? “…painted during a time of great self-awareness and yet surrounded by chaos.” “On a cold and frosty morning…” is an action song my wife sings as she teaches infants […]
I love Sunday Mornings. Space, to stop, pause and listen to relative silence (don’t mention the tinnitus). I love thinking, and I’m often a victim of the paralysis of analysis. However, I love sensing the glimpse and sparkle of the gap between the building blocks. I love the moment when the information and advice and […]
Hoodwinked? We watched The Greatest Showman recently, a last treat of the festive season. Fabulous! “People come to my show for the pleasure of being hoodwinked” says Hugh Jackman as showman Phineas Taylor Barnum in the film. We went to see Scrooge at Leicester Curve at Christmas. Again, fabulous. I recall tweeting afterward, ‘if one could […]
