Pogue, After yesterday's post I saw this and, well, I couldn't resist. I did say I had great eyes but I didn't think I would end up here. The price of vanity? Hope you read yesterday's post and this makes sense...and it makes you smile. I guess God has a sense of humour.
Well Pogue, It certainly is a new world. So I went to the supermarket to do the weekly shop and I was behaving as I now have to in this new age. Mask on, 2 metres separation from other shoppers. I was feeling like I was in my world, perfectly happy and then, without warning … Continue reading Monday Musings
Pogue, New week already. Someone, maybe Einstein, said that if you don’t know your subject well enough to be able to teach a child, and that child understand, then you need to continue learning your subject. Isn’t there a great truth in this? In a world that is becoming ever more advanced, more complicated, that … Continue reading Monday Musing
Kindness:1. Loaning someone your strength instead of reminding them of their weaknessThe MindsJournal Long story short. I test drove a large motorcycle. I dropped it. I was stationary on a steep slope trying to pull onto a busy road. I never made the road. I didn’t hurt myself (except my pride). I just laid the … Continue reading Monday Musing
Hi Pogue, Continuing my journey through little and less known artists and tracks I have come across this. And I'm liking it. Bonny Light Horseman. Go on, you haven't come across this artist, have you? He puts so much feeling in the song it really caught my attention the first time I heard it. Great … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…what I’m listening to now
Hi Pogue, Here’s a morning song to start your day. You know what they say. Win the morning, win the day. High five that! And, it’s chosen with our blogger friend, Nopassingfancy, in mind as how many posts has she written in the morning over several cups of coffee? I say again, win the morning, … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…what I’m listening to now
Pogue, How did you enjoy our first tune? Well here’s the second. It’s a favourite by Amos Lee that you may know. Flower from one of his early albums. If you like it you might want to try Windows Rolled Down from the same album. Two great tracks, and you get two for the price … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…what I’m listening to now
Pogue, We have been sharing our thoughts in words for a while now. I thought I’d like to do it in music. We have a new category in our title bar! Today I’m listening to Vance Joy. Give it a try and feel what I’m feeling. You might have to skip the ads...sorry. Singing along, … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…what I’m listening to now
Dear Pogue, Yesterday the sun shone and I laid on my back, in the long grass, in the country park. I was in a world of my own, which is the very best of places, believe me, when some distance above me a red kite moved into my line of vision. Maybe a 100 metres … Continue reading The Red Kite
Dear Pogue, Back in the most wonderful of places, back in the day, when everything was just right, if my memory is honest, there was a band called the Vapors. I think they were a one hit wonder with a song called ‘Turning Japanese’. Why am I telling you this? Well, other than trying to … Continue reading Shibumi
Dear Pogue, How are you doing? I appreciate how stressful this time is for you but you and all other doctors are really appreciated by the country. You realise you’re all fast gaining superhero status and will be seen with new eyes for a long time after this is over? Me, I’m just locked away … Continue reading Why waste life?
Dear Pogue, So we’re on our travels again and what more appropriate than a postcard? I have a blog that I share with a pair of rogues called Chris and Polie, a wayward moose and verbal challenged polar bear (he can’t say some of his r’s so things are all wight) who is quite wise. … Continue reading On the road again
Pogue, Now I have a supply of postcards I thought I better use them so here, I just got my new phone case, and it’s making me smile. Also, after our last letter on road trips it just fitted. Synchronicity. Courtesy of Art by Ilana Let me introduce you to two friends of mine, Chris … Continue reading Making me smile
Dear Pogue, Daughter of mine, what a conversation. Isn’t it so strange that we can let our communications become tempered and modified by not wanting to offend another person or not wanting to upset? How easily we dilute our honesty because we fear that should another consume it undiluted it will be bitter and unpalatable. … Continue reading Daughter of mine.
Dear Pogue, People have been asking me where I live and, being the private, slightly secretive person that you know I am (and you love me for it...I hope) I have been avoiding the question. But, hey, what the heck. I am actually proud of where I live. It’s a great city. I think the … Continue reading Fuddy Duddy?
Dear Pogue, Let me tell you about a lady I am getting to like. Let me qualify that statement unless you get the wrong idea. Her name is Brooke Hampton and she appears in several paces on the web including her on web site, Barefoot Five. She's on Instagram but I came across her on … Continue reading Through the wardrobe.
