Monday Musing

Pogue, I lost my mojo! You know what I’m saying? All of a sudden I have found myself with nothing to say! Can you believe me? Yeah, I know that’s a big ask. How did it happen? Well my routine was decimated (and I’m now realising the importance of continuity, of a routine). My mother … Continue reading Monday Musing

Where Do The Birds Go (The Bigger Question)?

Where Do The Birds Go?

Have you ever seen a dead birdLaying on the ground? The trees sing outWith birdsong sweetThe skies are speckled byBirds in flight Flocks gather in the fieldsAnd feast on the cornSeagulls gather on the shoreOr cluster around the fishing boats In city gardensOn wooded hillsIn the summer heatAnd the winters freeze Birds are a backdropTo … Continue reading Where Do The Birds Go?

Sometimes You Have To Make The Magic

You must have had occasions when you’ve just stopped and had to take a breath whilst thinking, “Didn’t see that one … Continue reading Sometimes You Have To Make The Magic

Songs to Pogue…what I’m listening to now.

Hey, Pogue, What's up? Yesterday I wrote to you about everyone needing a Little Red Corvette in their lives. A little unusual that will stand out in a world of predominantly grey cars. So, having written that I had to go and play this song, headphones on, strutting around the kitchen like Prince. Today, I … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…what I’m listening to now.

Been Reading

Been a few weeks since I wrote to you a letter about a book Pogue, but I have been reading. It’s a particular time of year in England. November, the leaves are vacating the trees, the air has a chill in the morning and we remember. We’ve just passed by Remembrance Sunday. We’ve worn our … Continue reading Been 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.
