Pogue, Last song of the year and I’ve been sitting here playing an old, favourite album. Blood on the Tracks by Bob Dylan. Sometimes I find myself just wondering how someone can think up the lyrics. Have the thoughts. Capture feelings so accurately. Bob Dylan is one of those people, and this is my favourite … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…what I’m listening to now.
Pogue, Last Monday of our year and it's that time when many people get philosophical over the way they have lived their lives in the year just gone. As John Lennon asked: So this is ChristmasAnd what have you done?Anther year over A new one just begun... And I have got philosophical. I have a … Continue reading Monday Musings
Hi Pogue, Here's a thing. There's a lady who calls herself Wise Hearted when she blogs. Lives on the other side of the world to us but she reads our letters. Obviously a person of great character. How they get to her remains a mystery. But she engages with them, comments and writes nice things … Continue reading Someone Called Me a Preacher!
Pogue, I'm late to put pen to paper for my Monday Musings but some days things just don't seem to flow and we write then screw up the page and condemn it to the paper bin because it wasn't invested with the truth, the emotion, the sincerity that we would want others to associate us … Continue reading Monday Musings
So the years coming towards an end Pogue, I might only get a couple more musical moments in🥺. Best make the most of them and there is so much I want to share because, well, music is the heart beat of life (?). Ok a little dramatic but you get my drift. I looked back … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…what I’m listening to now.
Dear Pogue, I got all seasonal and thought I would write you a Christmas letter. Bit like a Christmas card but low on pictorial content and a lot more words. All in all, much better value I'm thinking. Some years ago I spoke in a church at Christmas. I spoke regularly then. Anyway, I always … Continue reading A Christmas Letter
Hey Pogue, It's Monday morning. So, humour me while I take you back a few years. It's to something that you probably have no interest in. It's to a football match, a Champions League Cup Final way back in 2005, between AC Milan and Liverpool. Hang on in there with me, I know you are … Continue reading Monday Musings
Pogue, Only 12 days to Christmas and the town is looking festive despite Covid. Seems people are making an effort to be cheerful in the face of the year just gone. So, wherever I go I'm hearing Christmas music. The old favorites which come around every December and a few new offerings. Now there's a … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…what I’m listening to now.
Pogue, I thought (yes I can spell it) I would tell you something that happened and it will make you smile. So I went Christmas shopping yesterday. I had a coffee (large, but you knew that) and wandered around the shops for a couple of hours chasing inspiration. Then the coffee caught up with me … Continue reading Foughts on a Friday
Pogue, Princeton University runs a Global Consciousness Project and has done so for some years. The original objective was to ascertain whether, and to what extent, human consciousness can act in unison). That your consciousness and my consciousness are not our own but part of something bigger, something that extends over the world and possibly … Continue reading How Many Hearts?
Morning Pogue, So I went Christmas shopping and found myself standing in a bookshop which will come as no surprise. Now bookshops in Cambridge are large. Lots of books. Happy days. And where better to muse than in a bookshop surrounded by all that thought. All that latent wisdom whispering, "read me, read me", caressing … Continue reading Monday Musings
Pogue, Here something super smooth to slot into your day. Just find a quiet place and feel the music. Music with a mood on a Friday. Set you up for the weekend, nice and good. Like Sand by Marie Dahlstrom. Enjoy, because I am as I sit and watch the snow out of my window. … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…what I’m listening to now.
