Hi Pogue, Over the last few weeks I’ve found occasional moments when I have unwittingly slipped into dark thoughts. And believe me there is plenty of reason to go to that place. One episode of the daily news has the potential to send a weak mind into a tail spin. But in so many situations, … Continue reading Monday Musings
My Dreams Are Strong
My dreams are strongBoth day and night,In this reality I am feared,Even revered,Held in trembling respect,For I walk in placesOthers fear to go.With an elegant madness in my eyesI plunder the depthsBeyond death mysterious veil,Mordors fires,Valhalla’s glory,Nivarna’s bliss.What you prophesied as heavenWhat you call hell,Nothing is denied to the dreams I have.I tell you, you … Continue reading My Dreams Are Strong
Dear Pogue, It is December and the world around us has turned it’s focus, wholeheartedly, towards Christmas. That is, unless you have been shopping in some of our mainline supermarkets where Christmas starts around the 1st October and continues until the beginning of Easter which I think is now the 2nd January. And that’s a … Continue reading Monday Musing
The Old School Field
The children still play in the old school field.The trees stand in the same places,Shed leaves in the same season,Look bare in winter like before,They’re just bigger than on that dayWhen you and I climbed so highHid in their branches And were possessed by make believe.I was happy then.The crime was that I did not … Continue reading The Old School Field
Dear Pogue, So it happened. After numerous false starts and months of preparation I am finally in my new home! Cardboard box city or what at this moment! But I’ve found the box with my winter jumpers in, so I’m finally equipped to face the day. 1C outside on this fine winter day. Life is … Continue reading Hope
Well Pogue, Last Monday I asked you how you would live this year if this was the last year, ever. If on 31st December the world just stopped. What did you think? Indeed, did you think? I’ve asked some others and there seems to be a big gap in the responses. There are some who … Continue reading Monday Musings
Hey Pogue, Another Monday, a little more wisdom. I was talking to a friend about life. We talked about what the future held and I found myself thinking back to the time we built the house. Many years dreaming and planning. Three years in the build. Then people said it was wonderful. They wished they … Continue reading Monday Musings
The Never Ending Journey
Hi Pogue, The letterbox clanged and here I am, face up on your door mat. Perfect start to another mind bogglingly good day. You were expecting another of the Universal Laws, yes? Well I’m still at it with the Laws but I’m struggling with the next one. I can’t quite get my head around it. … Continue reading The Never Ending Journey
Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Well Pogue, We had a song for the lovers so let’s have one for the dreamers. This is a favourite of mine because, well I believe in dreams and the power they can have to cause us to live inspired lives. A life without dreams? Would you want to do it? Today I’m listening to … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
What’s up Pogue, I’m learning all the time. Never stop. Life’s just too big and too wonderful to even consider stopping. Resting yes. Stopping no. So, as I’ve engaged with the Universal Laws, which I’ve been writing to you about, I’ve learnt that not everyone who wants you to read their stuff will actually tell … Continue reading Monday Musings
Hi Pogue, How are you enjoying the new idea, the music posts? I met Carole the other evening and she was telling me how she had enjoyed the first few. She was really enthusiastic about the blog. Made me smile. Strange how I post you these letters and so many others read them, regularly. But … Continue reading Unharnessed Potential
Peaked too early?
Dear Pogue, Since I wrote to you the other day about David Bowie there has been a conversation going on concerning people’s favourite songs. Everybody has a favourite Bowie song. You know the catalogue is large and varied spanning many years. As you’d expect, the same songs keep coming up over and over. Heroes, Golden … Continue reading Peaked too early?
Dream from where you stand.
Dear Pogue, How’s your week going? I know you had to work some nights so I hope you have recovered. I thought I’d like to share a few lines from a favourite song that always encourages me and helps me to be forward looking. Whatever happened to the dreamersThey always look beyond the skySaw a … Continue reading Dream from where you stand.
Some say weird, I say different.
Dear Pogue, I have a friend who has just gone to university. "So what" I hear you ask, "aren't a whole bunch of kids off to university about now?" Yes, that's true, but my friend didn't go with the hoards of 18 and 19 year olds fresh from school, most trying to delay employment as … Continue reading Some say weird, I say different.
