Give your heart…

After last month’s postcard project, a good friend approached me to create another postcard as a culmination of their community project in Wolverhampton. Residents of a couple of streets in Wolverhampton were invited to add a heart to a frame set out in the street, to say “thank you” to everyone who’s work and contribution […]

Five mindful mins…

‘Five Mindful Minutes’ bookmarks… #printables Here’s a reminder of the bookmark design I revamped last year. The bookmarks were originally created to be left in public places like airports, railway stations, waiting rooms etc.  They can be given out, or made available, where people might benefit from ‘taking time out’ of their busy lives.

A covenant…

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 […]

Over the last few weeks I’ve been part of a ‘lockdown’ project from the Facebook Group ‘Create!‘, part of Northampton District Methodist Church. The project aims to raise awareness of the Christian conviction that nobody should be ‘locked down’ because of who they are. The Methodist Church is “committed to sharing, with all, the refuge […]

Balance… + tea + muffins

Airless tyres – an update…

So an update on the post in January: ‘Airless Tyres‘ Back in Feb 2011 I said ‘Never in a month of Sundays…’ but now on 2020, it’s my 10th year ‘commuting by bike’, or rather simply riding a bike to and from work daily. You can read about it here: Think again? – Feb 2011 – ‘Never […]

Blinded by the words – let it out…

When we find ourselves blinded by electric light, or in my case looking up out of a deep dark well, a heavy cloud, a rage of fear or loss… where do we look for assurance? (‘Let it out’ Christ Wells) What might we hold onto, where can we find a hand hold, a rock to […]

Sign language

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 […]
