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.
Dear Pogue, I recently mused on a Monday and asked you to think about who Normal Man was. Remember? So who is this person (and I'll take Normal Woman for an answer)? Our new, soon to be iconic, superhero. The defender of all that makes our usual day. Protecting our boundaries from the extraordinary. Our … Continue reading Who Is Normal Man?
Dear Pogue, Here are some thoughts that have been prompted by reading the book I mentioned in the last "Been Reading". I was not very far into it, not very far at all, when I realized that there were two processes going on. I was enjoying the unfolding of the plot and the development of … Continue reading The Observer
So here's a question Pogue. Who is Normal Man? I had a friend when I was in school who, at the time Superman was having some popularity and tee-shirts with the iconic 'S' were being worn, made a tee-shirt with a large 'N' in place of the 'S'. Under the 'N' he printed 'Who is … Continue reading Monday Musings
Pogue, You’ve had Songs To Pogue this week but I couldn’t resist out staying my welcome with a second tune. So I’m standing in my favourite coffee shop waiting for a Takeout because we’re currently not allowed to drink in. Then as I savour the aroma of freshly roasted coffee this noise filled my head.😍 … Continue reading Twice in a Week!
Well Pogue, The first song of a New Year, a new play list and I’m going to bring you an artist I’m sure you won’t know. A song with some Indian influences because, well we are a blog without borders😎🎷🎼🎵 We will spend the year exploring different music and smiling. So here to start you … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…what I’m listening to now.
So Pogue, My first post of the year, aside from my Musings of course, declared that we live in a world full of potential. It's all about us. Heaven is breaking in whenever the chance presents itself. Yet so many live such poor lives. Not necessarily monetarily poor, but obviously that exists. Rather with no … Continue reading Monday Musings
So the years coming towards an end Pogue, I might only get a couple more musical moments in🥺. Best make the most of them and there is so much I want to share because, well, music is the heart beat of life (?). Ok a little dramatic but you get my drift. I looked back … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…what I’m listening to now.
Hey Pogue, It's Monday morning. So, humour me while I take you back a few years. It's to something that you probably have no interest in. It's to a football match, a Champions League Cup Final way back in 2005, between AC Milan and Liverpool. Hang on in there with me, I know you are … Continue reading Monday Musings
Here we go Pogue, It’s Thursday and, well lets start the day with a quick trip around the world in the company of our good friend, Passenger.

How’s things Pogue? New week already...and it’s raining here. So I’m stuck in doors 🚪 today. But that’s not an issue because actually I’m not. You see we all have a superpower but not so many of us use it. We are all gifted with an imagination which can be the most wonderful of things. … Continue reading Monday Musings
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.
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
Dear Pogue, I think one of the things in life that I find hard is trusting people. I am sure that this trait has been preceded by a lot of life experiences on all levels. I don’t trust easily. So when I tell you that ‘I trust You’, please don’t make me regret it.Anon I … Continue reading I don’t want your silver.
Pogue, I finally replaced my sports headset. It was beyond saving being held together with tape🥺 So, mindful of how much use I got from my previous headset I was not precious about spending a little more money and getting a really nice pair of ear buds. My one concern was, I would get them … Continue reading Monday Musing
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, This week determine to approach the world with an open mind. I think we all need to determine from time to time to open our minds because we establish beliefs, patterns we come to live by and fears of what we do not know. This week ask yourself why you believe the things you … Continue reading Monday Musing
Morning Pogue, The Buddha told a story which goes roughly like this. A young man, having lost his wife, had been left to raise his son. He loved the boy very much. One day whilst away from the village bandits attacked and when he returned he found many dead and much of the village destroyed … Continue reading State Your Truth
Hey Pogue, How’s life? You know what we haven’t had on pour music posts yet? Think hard. I know we’ve had some great sounds BUT...we haven’t had any soul. Everyone needs a little soul in their life for sure. Especially that easy smooth type that has you sliding elegantly around the kitchen. So here’s a … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Good week Pogue, That’s sort of a longer version of Good Day. In case we don’t connect again this week. I watch people, as you know. Nothing stranger than people. I regularly come across people who want to tell you they have lived so many years. Any number of years will do. I look at … Continue reading Monday Musings
Pogue, Today I bring you a lady with a voice. I can listen to her for hours but I couldn’t find a whole lot of video footage on the web🥺 However, I’ve got one of her best known songs. The lady is Judie Tzuke and the song, For You, which I’m hoping you enjoy as … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
So Pogue, Here’s a quote to start your week: And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche So this week understand there is music in your soul that particular music is...just in your soul. It’s the flow of life that you … Continue reading Monday Musing
Dear Pogue, Firstly, if your days looking busy put this back in the enveloped because I started writing and couldn’t stop! Yes, it’s long, so you’re warned. Not for everyone. Decided to go on? Well, know this. In the years preceding the birth of Jesus there were two Rabbis who led schools of teaching in … Continue reading They Lied To Me.
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
The other day I found myself bopping up the street. The neighbours think I’m eccentric I’m sure...and that’s the kind ones! The reason I was behaving so was this piece of music that had come on my headset. It’s on my snowboarding playlist and I always play it when I go snowboarding. It just fits … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Dear Pogue, I’ve taken a pause in writing about the Universal Laws because, well this one caused me issues. Today I’m writing about the Law of Attraction (LOA). You’ll know of this one and probably think that you understand something about it. So many people know this one, and only this one. It’s been widely … Continue reading Law 7. The Law Of Attraction.
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.
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
Dear Pogue, A poem to start the week. I haven’t done a poem before. Little boy I miss you, with your sudden smile and your ignorance of pain. You walked through life and devoured it with nothing but misty goals to keep you company. You wandered through quiet woods with friends and you were startled … Continue reading Monday Musings
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.
