Dear Pogue, Do you ever struggle to find joy in life? I know I do on occasions and the last week or so it’s been particularly hard, what with having Covid and all. Inspiration has certainly been in short measure. But the thing is, and it is only as I sit here and search for … Continue reading Small Things
Pogue, Imperfection is a form of freedomAnh Ngo Be free today, Wic
Morning Pogue, Remember how we talked and expressed our amazement over the narrative that the Russian people were being told about the war in Ukraine? How the invasion of a sovereign nation was being passed off as an act of defence. Then seeing TV interviews with everyday Russians who wholeheartedly believed what they were being … Continue reading Monday Musing
Morning Pogue, Back in the Day I had a love affair with the music of Joe Jackson. I’m still thinking he wrote some really great songs. But then, fickle as my love is, it moved on to other brighter and shinny things and Joe faded into a collection of memories. Such is life. However music, … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Pogue, I have been thinking back over the journey we’ve made since the letters started to be sent. How things have evolved, for the better. How beliefs have expanded and our understanding of God, Source, The Great Spirit have changed. So I thought it may be appropriate to reread the very first letter and continue … Continue reading Back To The Beginning
Pogue, I have a question to start the week. Question. If people are souls/spirits having a human experience is God at all concerned in their gender, colour, sexual preference? To be frank, I’m not sure God even notices any of these things at a level that would elicit concern. God might be a little irked … Continue reading Monday Musing
Greetings Pogue, Sometimes I just need a song to help me keep up the pace as I move though the day. A song to help me bop along. It’ll reenergise me and sing along in my head, shutting out the noise. I hope you know what I mean? Well, George Ezra writes songs that are … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Pogue, Here I am suffering the tedium of another foreign land. Another beach. Hours of mindlessly sunbathing. Reading. Listening to music. And beer. Is this purgatory I ask myself? It is purgatory! I went to breakfast and, although there was a diverse selection of foods spanning world tastes, there was no bacon! I commented on … Continue reading There wasn’t any bacon!
Pogue, I sending you a second song this week. Two songs in a week! This one forced itself on me. Let me explain. I went out walking. Literally five minutes from my front door and I have this... And this… Plus this… Then a song started playing in my head as I counted my blessings. … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now
Pogue, Please don’t tell me your secrets or if you do, then when you put them back in the drawer don’t lock it anymore. I am just no good with secrets. I can’t keep secrets. It’s not that I find delight in telling others and making those hidden things public. Not at all. Not one … Continue reading I Can’t Be Trusted.
Dear Pogue, I’ve been revisiting the subjects I majored in. For some reason I suddenly found an uncommon desire to explore assorted areas of theology that I’d put down many years ago. Maybe, when the student is ready the teacher reveals them self? It’s been a good week with some interesting perspectives coming to the … Continue reading Re-Reading
Pogue, Saturday morning. Ready to slow down for the weekend? Chill a little? Well I came across a new artist, sort of a fortunate accident, this week. And I’m really enjoying him. Take a listen to Paul Kelly and see what you think. And…enjoy the weekend. Do things that cause you to smile and make … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Pogue, Sometimes you see entertainment shows where the guest is asked; ”if you could meet anybody who would it be?” I always find myself spending time trying to establish who I would like to meet. My list is exceedingly small because, well, they say you shouldn’t meet your hero’s, at least not if they are … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now
Pogue, It’s a driving day. I’m in the car. The sun is shinning and there is not a lot on the roads. Oh, and I have my sunglasses on, of course. Cool by default.😎 So here’s one of my favourite driving tunes and being all on my own, I can play it on repeat. This … Continue reading Songs To …What I’m Listening To Now.
Still there Pogue? Another letter to enlighten your day. Does life get any better? And this one…it’s a long one, three sheets of paper😳, so you might want to choose your moment for reading. In our last few letters we have started with the question, “Is God bothered” in relation to how we live our … Continue reading The God Frequency
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
Dear Pogue, So here we are at the commencement of a New Year and we’re all resolutioned up. All those things we intend to do to improve life. Weight to lose, fitness to gain, bad habits to shed. We do it every year and then, round about the third week of January begin to flag. … Continue reading The Last Year To Come
Pogue, Winter evenings, log fires, and cool soulful jazz. It’s what winter evenings are about. Here’s what I’m listening to this week. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/qRzbRtWKo-I And I hope you’ve got my Christmas present already😏 Wic
Pogue, There’s been a lot of focus on environmental issues in the last couple of weeks, what with the world leaders meeting to discuss the issues. But for me it’s all a lot simpler. You treat what you have with respect, be that a relationship, a possession or the world about you. Is that such … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m listening to now
Dear Pogue, Well you read my letter on being Windswept? Several other people certainly did and I received some feedback. The good stuff😎 The gist of it was that people actually like the idea of being eccentric, if only in some small way. That they know that there are things that they keep hidden away … Continue reading Monday Musing
Dear Pogue, I’ve just picked up a copy of Billy Connelly’s autobiography. Love him or hate him he is an interesting person as a comedian, a film star and a documented traveller. The book has the title of Windswept and Interesting, a title Billy arrived at after a comment someone made when describing him. Windswept … Continue reading Windswept and the ocean
Well Pogue, I’m beginning to think that I’ve discovered my superpower! I’m assuming that these youthful good looks don’t count as a superpower? No? I thought not. Shame. You have to try. Anyway, my superpower? I lead people astray. I can do it with ease and often they don’t even know it’s happening. So, am … Continue reading I am the…Devil?
Pogue, A more recent oldie for you (does that even make sense?). I’ve been singing this in my head for a few days as I travel around. I’m on the road this week. I’ve sold my home. I’ve given away half my possessions and…life feels good and I‘m sitting here and really, really appreciating the … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening to.
Pogue, I've had a morning of self examination and have decided to continue this by writing a letter addressed to you but probably written to me. By sending it to you I feel I will maintain some honesty in my reflections as, well, you'll hold me accountable if I don't, in your own sweet fashion. … Continue reading I Write. A Friday Fought.
Pogue, New artist, at least for me, probably not for you🤔 So I heard this song while enjoying some Chinese food with friends (and a cheeky beer😳). And I had to share it. Not much else to say. So here is Rictor with You and Me and Somehow. https://youtu.be/hizS3hqZ-qk I hope you really enjoy this. … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening to
Dear Pogue, Last Monday I wrote you about my forth coming move, how I’ve got rid of a lot of possessions and the fact that, to my surprise, I’m finding this sort of liberating. Well that letter has provoked a number of comments and, thankfully, they have all been positive😊 It appears that a lot … Continue reading Monday Musing
Monday morning Pogue😊 Let’s do things in reverse and start by saying “Have a good one” which we usually finish with. There’s a minor rebellion just there. Good, got that out of the way. Here’s a trade secret. Before I blog I write my words in a note pad. I believe I’m part of a … Continue reading Monday Musings.
Hey Pogue Saw this and, well, as said, ‘No judgement here’ and that feels 😊. Sometimes other people say it so well.
