Morning Pogue, I watched a TV series recently where the premises was a group of British agents controlled a programme which gave them access to a reset button. When the world reached a catastrophic event, usually a nuclear event, and the end of the world as we know it was hustling in, the reset button … Continue reading Monday Musing

Hi Pogue, Another flight, another airport lounge. Stockholm today and I have an hour before boarding and home. It will be nice to be home. But Stockholm’s been a blast so a good trip despite the well below 0C temperatures (we hit -18C in Helsinki allowing for the windchill factor and that’s painful!). Here in … Continue reading Monday Musing
Hi Pogue, So here I am and I’m still thinking about ‘weird’, your ‘weird’, my ‘weird’ and looking around and about for other people who have found their’s together with the determination and freedom to give it expression. To that end I spotted an account in a book I’m currently reading, A Moveable Feast, Ernest … Continue reading Monday Musing
Maybe…a moment from my craziness.
I believe music fills the universe. That the day and night are filled with rhythm but far too many are not aware and never hear it. And that is sad because if more heard and felt that which moves around us all the time, there would be less division, less strife. There would be harmony. … Continue reading Maybe…a moment from my craziness.
Dear Pogue, I wrote to you in the week about the creative process and suggested that inspiration came from outside rather than within. I questioned whether we had lost our way and turned to our own very limited ability to find creative impulse. So thinking about this and practicing the thought to test its veracity … Continue reading Monday Musing
Pogue, The creative process can be a tortured thing at times. One day, there you are just breezing along, everything is flowing, all cylinders seem to be firing, inspiration is a warm breeze blowing from the south and all is well with the world. You just create because you can do nothing else. Then something … Continue reading Creative Inspiration

Pogue, So here’s a thing. I came across somebody this week, a lady, who trains hard. She lifts weights and doing one particular lift she was using 60kgs as her max. But this week she became impassioned, in the zone, and pushed through 60kgs and kept going until she maxed out at 100kgs (too a … Continue reading Monday Musing
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
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
Dearest Pogue, Have you ever taken note of just how influential your surroundings can be to your mood and the way you think? The Danish, aware of the affects of their overly long winters on peoples mental health have addressed lifestyle and have a word for what they perceive as the best of styles. That … Continue reading Monday Musings
Go deep or go home(1)
Pogue, Try this. Go deep or go home. What are your thoughts on that one? Think, we've had 'go big or go home' and as I cast my gaze around I'm thinking that was a success but, as you know, no judgement here. I looked at myself in the mirror once and, hey, definitely no … Continue reading Go deep or go home(1)
