Monday Musings

Morning Pogue, I haven’t run for two weeks now. It’s not that I haven’t wanted to. It’s a combination of moving home, being on a road trip, living in temporary accommodation. The routine’s gone! But this week I move into a place of some permanence, well at least for six weeks, so this week I … Continue reading Monday Musings

Go Deep Or Go Home (4)

Pogue, So have you decided to be mindful of what you say? I mean after our last letter.

Responsible?

Dear Pogue, I finished our last post by reminding you that you are responsible for the people you choose to follow. If you take on board their teachings, believe them, apply them to your life, then that's your choice and once again you are responsible. All that responsibility, yet responsibility is such an undervalued thing, … Continue reading Responsible?

Monday Musings

Dear Pogue, It’s said that we don’t appreciate things in our life until they are gone and there’s truth in that. We only understand plenty once we know lack, and companionship after we’ve greeted loneliness. I could go on with a list but I’m sure you’re there before me. But have you ever thought that … Continue reading Monday Musings

Truth, the sum of our perceptions

It is said that there are no truths but only the way each one of us sees the world. There is no truth. There is only perception.Gustavo Flaubert.
