    Imagine: A favorite relative gives a kid something absolutely phenomenal that it will take the kid a very long time to appreciate what it is they have… BUT… the ‘parent’ steps in and does not allow the kid to have access to the thing or to discover just how great the thing is…

    God, by whichever name you know him/ her/ it…. has given us an…[Read more]

    This is a time of change, of ‘spring cleaning’ on a global scale. Sometimes you need to pause to take stock and get rid of the rubbish you have been hoarding for far too long, to create space for something new and better to enter your life. We need to sweep, polish, wash, dust and mop everywhere to get rid of the grime, the dirt, the negative…[Read more]

    We just returned from a weeks vacation to Rodanthe in the Outer Banks, North Carolina. I’m getting to see more of my adopted country, little by little. So far, I’ve covered, Las Vegas (Courtesy of Ben Ogden), Delaware, Maryland, Ocean City, Dewey beach, Myrtle beach, Niagra falls (American side) and now, North Carolina. I also realise that too…[Read more]

    God made man, Man made religion!

    It is my earnest belief that most of the major religions are based on misinterpretation and that is the source of most of the issues facing people now. We have been provided with everything we need in this world and this life yet humanity, in its wisdom, doubts and believes that we can do so much better than what…[Read more]

  • I am Scottish, raised in Glasgow, the largest city on the west coast of Scotland. Despite the attempts of liberals to make Glasgow appear something it is not, it has been, is and always shall be a rough, tough, non politically correct working class city. It will never be the pavement cafe/ wine bar. progressive cultural centre that the city…[Read more]

    • I’m pretty sure the Big Yin would agree with your sentiments.

      • You know Billy then? I’ve always loved the Big Yin and his work.

        • Yes, I know Billy – not personally you understand, but have been a long term fan of his for years. The guy can tell a yarn or two and be effortlessly funny at the same time. There’s only one Big Yin.

          • Are you Scottish then? I’m being nosy. lol Would love to know more about how you discovered him etc.

            • Actually I am English. I can remember way back in the 70’s when I first saw a performance from Billy, a stand up routine with piles of smut included – it was outrageously funny. Being a musician, I was also a fan of his old group “The Humblebums” which disbanded in 1971. Everyone knew Billy Connolly back then, he was steadily forging his…[Read more]

    Just some random quotes that resonate with me…

    This place is a dream, it only seems real to those who are asleep.
    Then comes death and you wake up laughing
    at what you thought was your grief. – Rumi

    If you cannot find a group whose consciousness matches your own, be the source of one. Others of like consciousness will be drawn to you.

  • Whatever you may think about recent global and local events, much of it is not good. Personally, I feel that the most unforgivable thing is that “they” have taken my peace of mind. Whether that is their fault or mine is a moot point, but my world has changed, not for the better in many ways. Not for me, particularly but I have a keen sense of how…[Read more]

  • Everyone has a book within them, they say, and I do believe that. In fact, I believe I have several and have been working on them for far too long, without getting serious enough to look at publication. The one book that I find hardest to write however, is the one that may lay my soul bare, exposed to the world. I don’t care what people think of…[Read more]

  • His name was… George. That’s how we knew him and the only name he would respond to. He appeared to be one of many possibly alcoholic, down and out’s that frequented the main railway station, checking out the litter bins and garbage cans to see if there was anything worth saving. Perhaps a bit to eat? Or something more valuable to him. Sometimes,…[Read more]

    • Nice work. I like this.

    • Thanks Jim, means a lot.

      I love creating pictures then stare at them when they are finished until a seedling of a story emerges, I then put pen to paper – so to speak.

      • I completely understand. I do almost the exact same thing in nature. I look at or tune into a scene, a place, and let my higher mind lead me into the story of that place or time. It is always amazing to me how randomly creative the mind can be! I especially connect to the magik part of your work too since that has been a large part of my life.

    My well meaning but misguided parents raised me as a Catholic and in the early days strongly encouraged, nigh enforced my attendance at Sunday mass. I was sent to Catholic school where we were “educated” by (perhaps) well meaning nuns and monks into the Catholic religion. Part of that education/ indoctrination mean that we HAD TO learn and recite…[Read more]

    I may have said this before (but I’m saying it again anyway, so shoot me! lol) If you have ever read Hans Christian Anderson’s tale of ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’, you will know about the little boy who saw the truth amidst all of the lies and illusions. Well, yes, I often feel like that young boy. Like everyone else is seeing something different…[Read more]

    With all the chaos of recent times, I have been estranged from my core, from who I am. It took a long time to get back to me and I needed the help of an online course to guide me in the right direction. I know I’m getting back there. To where I am supposed to be, to who I am. It may take a little time but the journey has begun and I am filled with…[Read more]

    • the suspense you create is impeccable🔥

    • Thank you.

      I just create a picture and then let my imagination run rampant until a thread of a story is realised, then I run with it.
