Dear Pogue, Did we wake on Thursday morning to a pivotal moment in world history? Well that’s what some of the commentators were saying as Russian tanks began to roll into Ukraine? Was the world about to change? Was this the prelude to war in Europe? There was so much to muse on Thursday. I … Continue reading Monday Musing.
Pogue, All this talk about God, the Universe, relationships, over the last few letters. It is bound to lead one’s mind to a certain place and it’s precisely from that place that I’ve found this song. A band I haven’t listen to in a while but I will be now. Follow the link to hear … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now
Well Pogue, Have you got your head around the whole eternity mindset? Better still, have you been mindful to work on your relationship with the eternal, to cosy up with God, or Source (if you’re having an unbelieving day🤔) and build or strengthen things between you? We commenced last weeks letters by considering whether God … Continue reading It’s A Tuning Fork Thing…
Pogue, I’ve been people watching and I’ve drawn on a library of observations gained over time. See if this resonates with you. Seated comfortably? Then here I go. There are people who in this life are needy. For a variety of reasons which a lot of the time are not their fault. Some are born … Continue reading Monday Musing.
Well Pogue, After yesterdays letter I thought what more appropriate to listen to than Time by Pink Floyd. You’ve got to love a bit of Floyd!

God is Love and love is always bothered. It wants the best”. Nice reply, but let me add some illumination to my question. Every so … Continue reading Monday Musing
Well Pogue, As you know I’ve been letting my thoughts explore the influence of parents on children and asking how it effects each of us. And when I focus on a particular subject my mind begins to pick out songs, poems and the like which tie to the subject. It’s like, you think of yellow … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
After yesterdays post I found this. And this: And both were timely reminders which flowed, at least in my mind, of what I was trying to say. It never ceases to surprise me that someone else always says it better🥺, but I guess that’s life. There will always be someone out there who can do … Continue reading Hi Pogue,
Dear Pogue, As you know I received a copy of Renegades. Born In The USA, a dialogue between Barack Obama and Bruce Springsteen on numerous subjects spanning from music (obviously), to politics, the state of America and, as I read yesterday, the influence and effect on our lives of our parents. In the case of … Continue reading We Are The Damaged Children Of Damaged Children.
Pogue, Should I be disappointed, even sad when I write something that is undoubtedly a great piece of creativity and only 3 or 4 people read it. Or multiple people read it and only 3 or 4 like it. I mean, there it is and I’ve poured myself into it, shed tears, sweated blood, built … Continue reading Monday Musing
Pogue, Thought I’d follow up on Christmas and a gift I was given. You remember that I received a copy of Barack Obama’s and Bruce Springsteen’s book, Renegades - Born In The USA.
