Emergence

Our minds are an internal playground where we make stuff up. Nothing in there has any basis in objective reality, it is entirely a subjective space. Our minds do exist in an objective reality, our brain, which can be removed and examined, but what we’ll never find is a single thought of the millions, evenContinue reading “Emergence”

Challenged by love

I am going to request, dear reader, that you bear with me on this one. It’s not what it might seem, it is not intended as a religious diatribe or exposition. It’s something that has come to me since dying and returning to this life and really, it’s a question, or perhaps more correctly, aContinue reading “Challenged by love”

Lest we forget

In these darkening days, in which governments seek ever greater control of our lives and our sacred human rights are under threat, it is worth each of us remembering and absorbing: I am a free-born child of the universe. The gift of life is just that, a free gift bestowed upon each of us byContinue reading “Lest we forget”

What if our five senses which are so vital to our physical existence onContinue reading “What if?”

The Goose and the Common – evolution

The Goose and the Common – evolution I have said many times that there is nothing that money can’t fuck up, even though it serves a useful function in the global need for a means of exchange for goods.

I could ‘see’ where it had been, but all thatContinue reading “You cannot earn or make yourself worthy of love”

In a Time of Crisis, a City Fights Isolation

“Dr. Julian Abel, a retired palliative care consultant, said the results in Frome of fostering human relationships and a more compassionate community as a part of medical care amounted to “a medical miracle.” It was Dr. Abel who got access to local medical data in 2018 and published a report, peer-reviewed and published by the BritishContinue reading “In a Time of Crisis, a City Fights Isolation”

This is a recent project which I fiercely protect from the curse of money and marketing.

Imagine if someone asked you if you sell your art and if so how much you charge. Now imagine the response, ‘no I do not sell my art work, I give it away (I gift it) simply for pleasure’. So far 93 people have given my little dioramas loving homes and what I am doingContinue reading “This is a recent project which I fiercely protect from the curse of money and marketing.”
