It’s a kind of magic…

In my little adventure with my ‘You are here’ dioramas, I knew it would be a voyage of discovery, but I had no idea what I might discover… My decision to not accept payment, barter, donations to charity or help with postage was carefully considered because I really wanted to see what would fall outContinue reading “It’s a kind of magic…”

I am giving my work away, however…

My work is not free, it comes at a cost, of understanding, of kindness, of exploring a different way of being and doing, experimenting, daring to do things a little differently, challenging the world of money and everything being measured in cold hard cash. There is so much more to life than that. Life itselfContinue reading “I am giving my work away, however…”

Adverts – Channeling my inner psychopath

I don’t dislike adverts, I don’t detest them, I pathologically hate and despise them. Their effect on me is a whole body experience that is a challenge to self control. If you want to see this supposedly grown man seethe, consumed with rage, just add adverts. Every advert is dishonest, it’s ‘give us your money’Continue reading “Adverts – Channeling my inner psychopath”

Changing your life to find life

Yesterday I posted on Facebook the following: ‘Without my local library I would not have changed my life in the way I did by accessing a book called ‘Holiday Jobs in Britain’. I would not have met my wife and my daughter would not have been born and I would not have become a canoeingContinue reading “Changing your life to find life”

The UK needs proactive joyfully revolting people

It’s shockingly bad when fools are in charge making a mess of our lives, especially fools who are so privileged they are beyond incompetent, whose every utterance is pretty much dribbling nonsense. We may have to suffer them and the fools who vote for them but we also have to survive them and that’s theContinue reading “The UK needs proactive joyfully revolting people”

War is the ultimate failure of civilisation

The question is, why do the powers that be, the media and every red-neck ‘patriot’ in the world glorify war as some kind of major achievement and why are those who oppose war seen as unpatriotic, cowardly, losers? In 2018 the world spent $1.8 trillion on military expenditure [1], the top five countries in 2020Continue reading “War is the ultimate failure of civilisation”

Well! That’s no damned apology!

I am aware that there are people struggling with where I am at now. I am sorry that is so, I have grown much more radical with the passing years but it will never be any conscious intention of mine to alienate people. But, necessarily, that will be the case. Unfortunately any desire to holdContinue reading “Well! That’s no damned apology!”

Change the world one life at a time…

Our problem is in thinking too big. That’s what they want us to do. That’s the problem, right there. That’s what stops us loving ourselves. Just like school. We become part of the labour force, with no discrete identity of our own. That is why the factory was such an abomination to me. Factories destroyContinue reading “Change the world one life at a time…”
