A letter to me
If you could change your world by advising your younger self what to do and how to behave, what would you say?
What a week or three!
Dear Pogue, Please forgive me this letter. I just needed to write. I think I need to ground myself and I’m probably talking to myself. Yes, I know, the first signs of madness. But it will be a good conversation! I’ve had three busy weeks, which included a trip to Antwerp, full of people. I … Continue reading What a week or three!

It’s all about ME!
Dear Pogue, This morning I find myself in a strange place. I know it has been caused by writing the last two letters.

As I have told you, as the letters … Continue reading It’s all about ME!
