Because…

A couple of days ago, I had one of those moments where I found myself ridiculously overjoyed by something very simple that I’d said… It was a short lived moment, interrupted by a mallard flying out in front of my car. I hit my brakes and called it a bastard as I managed not to […]

Something In The Air

This morning got off to a miserable start. The clocks shifting forwards from GMT to BST always leaves me feeling churlish, a feeling not improved by a lazy wind, the kind of wind that cuts through you rather than go around you, that made 10°C feel like 2°C at best. My first batch of passengers […]

Out Of Hand

It feels like a long time since I last wrote on here, which is an  odd notion for me to be feeling given the sporadic and often erratic cycle of my scribblings. I guess it feels like a long time as I drew the image above intending to write about it, and popped it into […]

There You Go

They say you shouldn’t have favourites but I guess the nature of being human is that invariably you do. Is it a good thing or a bad thing? I dunno… It’s a thing… I think maybe it’s nature’s way of balancing things out… It’s been a week of mostly losing the will to live… A […]

Surely it couldn’t be serious… Please, she thought, let it be a joke… An off beat and badly landing joke would be easier to comprehend than the notion that the words […]

Will This Myth Never Die?

Today a package arrives, inside is a tarot deck. I’m not naming it as on the whole I am super chuffed with it BUT G’ah! I opened up the LWB and I find one of those Tarot Myths that make my teeth itch… To paraphrase – You’re not ready to work with your new cards […]

The Web Never Forgets…

I’m ambivalent about fb memories… Sometimes they pop up and I have no recall of what they refer to, sometimes they bring smiles and then days like today bring posts that make me ask myself – Wtf were you thinking? The post that came up places me at an event several years ago… From the […]

New Year… Old Patterns…

Today I sat down to doodle and see what image my hand would, bring me for 2021… It doodled out a familiar shape… A chambered nautilus, familiar to me as I’d seen this image last year in mindscape sessions… I wry smiled thinking that 2020 had not left the building… But then I guess the […]
