Pogue, I came across this the other day while reading around. It fits so well with a recent letter I’ve written to you. Better than I initially realised. Written by Rebecca Elson, sharing a view that I’ve suggested towards death, that we are only passing on and shedding our bodies to go to better things … Continue reading Antidotes To Fear Of Death
Pogue, Here’s another song and, well it’s just a really nice song with a great sentiment. It’ll set you up for the day if you just sit and listen. Maybe make it your “first cup of coffee” song for a few days. ☕️☕️☕️ I’m going to introduce you to Ayo and Teach Love. Right up … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Pogue, Last time we had a song from way back which I surmised you would not know. A little education, maybe? Just because things have a little age it does not subtract from their value. I’m thinking me now! There’s some great stuff waiting on the shelves to be played. But, today I’ve been listening … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Pogue, Another day, another song. Makes us smile 😃 And...this one comes from the most mysterious of places, ‘back in the day’. So I’m thinking this is one you will not know and when I can surprise you, in a nice way, that’s a good day. Also, it’s come to my notice that there are … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Pogue, Do you know that we are all story tellers? Yes, everyday. We all have a story in our heads about ourselves and we have the right to write it. Others will, throughout our lives, strive to write the story for us, to fill the book with their words. And you, you have to not … Continue reading Monday Musings
Here it is Pogue, Another song for you to enjoy! This one came to me while I was writing the last post. The one about people who have their relationships through social media and never meet the person they are in relationship with. Yeah, remember? So this is Wavelength by Van Morrison. I’ve probably listen … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Pogue, It’s done. I’m there. I’m free at last from the hours of torment I have had to endure. I know what people feel like when they reach the mountain’s summit, place their flag and stop to look out over the world. No doubt a frozen world and I have to be honest and say … Continue reading The Harley Diaries. Lock down with attitude 5.
This caught my attention as I always liked Neil Young and the things he wrote...and it’s a good post, so this is my first ever reblog I Allays Thought I Didn’t Like Neil Young Sometimes We Just Don’t Know I always thought that there was a genre of music that I didn’t really like. The … Continue reading It’s my first time!
Dear Pogue, Today I am writing as a form of therapy, to help me recover from my Lego experience. Well, do you remember this? We can beat them, just for one dayWe can be Heroes, just for one day Yeah, I’m back to the man Bowie. You see, having started writing about him three posts … Continue reading What happened to the heroes?
Dear Pogue, This is a letter from self isolation. I know the whole country is in lockdown but as you know I flew round half of the world last week so I’m even more confined. I can’t even volunteer to help for another two weeks. But I’m okay. Life feels good sat here in an … Continue reading The Thin White Duke
Dear Pogue, So we’re on our travels again and what more appropriate than a postcard? I have a blog that I share with a pair of rogues called Chris and Polie, a wayward moose and verbal challenged polar bear (he can’t say some of his r’s so things are all wight) who is quite wise. … Continue reading On the road again
Dear Pogue, So I see you put our last letter out there as I had some response and even a comment or two. The comments, they are the reason I find myself again committing pen to paper. You see, there was a question that came back and it asked: “...do you think there are people … Continue reading Yes and No
Dear Pogue, I thought I would write a follow up to our recent letter, You’re Worthless. It sort of stirred something up and I overheard a conversation or two. Let me start by setting the scene. As I write I am currently looking out of the window onto mountains. Yes, I am not at home … Continue reading Potential Revolution
Pogue, This was spotted on the London Underground last week. Charlie Mackesy strikes again. We do love Charlie and his work. After Saturday’s post this seemed a timely affirmation of self worth. Remember, we are all precious and deserve respect and love. Please don’t ever think otherwise. And if someone tells you otherwise they are … Continue reading Don’t be deceived
Dear Pogue, I'm guessing that, like me, you follow some of the blogs on Word Press? I tend to dip into some to get the flavour. I'm convinced that if we had the time and the energy we'd probably find that anything and everything that we can imagine will find a voice with someone writing … Continue reading You’re worthless
Pogue, Thought I’d drop you another postcard to kick start your day along with your first coffee. Always coffee! People who know me are so glad there's coffee in the world. What I say before coffee should really be ignored! Have I introduced you to my friend Polie? You’ll be seeing more of his wisdom … Continue reading The first cup of coffee
Pogue, Now I have a supply of postcards I thought I better use them so here, I just got my new phone case, and it’s making me smile. Also, after our last letter on road trips it just fitted. Synchronicity. Courtesy of Art by Ilana Let me introduce you to two friends of mine, Chris … Continue reading Making me smile
Pogue, I saw this and after the last letter thought I’d send it to you as, well, it just goes. Charlie Mackesy: The Boy, the mole, the fox and the horse. Ebury Press. Please remember to be gentle with yourself today because life isn’t perfect and you and I often fall sort of our intentions … Continue reading Be gentle with yourself
Dear Pogue, This is a letter that I have started several times only to find it populating the waste bin. I know what I feel and want to say but have never found the right way to express it. You see, this letter will start with an idea, a rather passionate one, something I need … Continue reading An Unholy Rant
Dear Pogue, Yesterday I did something I haven’t done in long, long time. I took a kite and flew it. More precisely, I went to the beach and flew my kite. The very best of days! The Classical Chinese described kite flying as “airing the soul” and there may be something in that. Uncomplicated yet … Continue reading Airing my soul
Dear Pogue, Did you enjoy the weekend? The sun shone and shone here so I max'd out time in the courtyard with a good book, a couple of coffees and as the sun slid into absence, a cheeky beer. In the evening, as I was home alone, I made hamburgers and watched football. I feel … Continue reading Wouldn’t it be something?
