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
Morning Pogue, The rattle of the letterbox and here I am, on your doormat, vanilla envelope, first class stamp, no expenses spared. So, what diamond of wisdom do I bring you today? Well, it’s all about trust and isn’t that what life’s about? We exercise trust in so very many situations. You opened this fine … Continue reading Trust is life
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
A wise man once told me: Never assume on grace. Good words to live by because the danger of taking others and their kindness for granted as time goes on is all too easy, all too tempting. Grace has a shelf life and boundaries, both people’s grace and Divine grace. Treat others as you’d wish … Continue reading Still Tying My Camel
If someone tells you you hurt them, you don’t get to decide you didn’t.Louis C.K. Even the strongest feelings expire when ignored and taken for granted.Anon When you’re always there for people they stop appreciating you because your favours are now an expectationAnon If you find yourself asking: “Was it me?”, it probably was. Don’t … Continue reading Tie Your Camel – An Afterthought, Or Three.
Pogue, You know I’ve been writing to you recently about my mental health. Two or three letters. That I’ve been taking a step back and becoming the observer of my thoughts and feelings which, lately, has led to me becoming a little fed up with people around me. However, standing back and taking a long … Continue reading Mental Boundaries – Tie Your Camel.
Dear Pogue, You know what? Your mother and I met 41 years ago this week! And we’re still together, an item, a couple. I’m guessing that in todays world that’s quite an achievement. Yes we met young but here we are all these years later😊 So this week I’ve been listening to this song which … Continue reading Songs To …What I’m Listening To Now.
How you doing Pogue? Listen. The other day I was asked for an opinion. I listened as the situation was described to me and then asked what I believed was the correct thing to do. I added what I was told to what I already knew, weighed the information and offered my opinion. At the … Continue reading Monday Musing
Pogue, I watched an interview type show the other night and one of the guests in the middle of a lively discussion announced “Women will never be the equal of men”. Talk about a conversation killer! Everyone ceased talking. The audience who had been buzzing along with the conversation seemed to freeze. It was like … Continue reading What if God is a woman?
Pogue, Another week of turmoil in the world with particular focus on Europe. Our television was filled with pictures of exploding munitions, solders, refugees, conflict at its worst. But I have also seen individuals on a local level, people I know and see about me, involved in conflict with each other. One on one. Not … Continue reading Monday Musing
Pogue, Here I am again, picking up where I left off last week. Yeah the letter about women being the equal of men and as the week’s passed by and I’ve read and thought, I’m now thinking I perhaps should have reversed the phrase and asked, will men ever be the equal of women? This … Continue reading A Better Day
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, Have you got your head around the whole eternity mindset? Better still, have you been mindful to work on your relationship with the eternal, to cosy up with God, or Source (if you’re having an unbelieving day🤔) and build or strengthen things between you? We commenced last weeks letters by considering whether God … Continue reading It’s A Tuning Fork Thing…
Well Pogue, After yesterdays letter I thought what more appropriate to listen to than Time by Pink Floyd. You’ve got to love a bit of Floyd! So I played it, and of course then you have to listen to the whole album which it comes from, Dark Side Of The Moon, an absolute classic. And … Continue reading Songs To …What I’m Listening To Now.
Dear Pogue, Do you think God is really bothered? A strange, and maybe troubling question for a Monday morning you’re thinking. Go on. Push back with “Of course God’s bothered. God is Love and love is always bothered. It wants the best”. Nice reply, but let me add some illumination to my question. Every so … Continue reading Monday Musing
Well Pogue, As you know I’ve been letting my thoughts explore the influence of parents on children and asking how it effects each of us. And when I focus on a particular subject my mind begins to pick out songs, poems and the like which tie to the subject. It’s like, you think of yellow … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
After yesterdays post I found this. And this: And both were timely reminders which flowed, at least in my mind, of what I was trying to say. It never ceases to surprise me that someone else always says it better🥺, but I guess that’s life. There will always be someone out there who can do … Continue reading Hi Pogue,

We lay beneath the sheetsDetermine to set a moodTo re-enact days now passedTo find the memories and … Continue reading An Old Friend
What’s Up Pogue, Here’s a song that tells a story of those moments of pleasure that make up our fondest memories. And there are those special unique moments such as your first kiss, or maybe that night you spent with friends and you wished it would never end. All the cosmic tumblers were lined up … Continue reading Songs To Pogue… What I’m Listening To Now
Dear Pogue, One last song for this year. A song that gives hope, at least for me. A song about relationship. It’s a cover version but I like this one and it finishes the year well. Nothing Else Matters, originally by Metallica, covered by Smith and Myers as an acoustic version. As the New Year … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m listening to now

Share an old favourite with me that just makes me want to share things with that special other🥰 Long winter nights curled up with someone special…. https://youtu.be/Z9aiBlIpyKU I hope you can enjoy this as much as I do.

Pogue, Saw this today and it spoke to me of a better world. Wic
Pogue, I thought I’d try to write a poem, inspired by the poets I read on WordPress. Tell me what you think. Should I write another🤔? I thought I knew me But now I know I didn’t. And you could do no better and know no more For just when I was ready to reveal … Continue reading Lazarus

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
What’s Up Pogue 😎, All this temporary accommodation I’ve lived in recently and the living out of suitcases…it’s made me remiss in sharing my music with you. And you know where ever I am and what ever I’m doing, there’s always music 🎵 🎶😁 So here’s a song I heard whilst standing in a shop … Continue reading Songs Pogue…What I’m Listening to
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, The other day I came across this artist after a long time not listening to him. Then I remembered that he had recorded a song that I had really liked back in the day and had played a lot at one time. So here I am sharing it with you. It’s a song about … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening to
Pogue, You have just moved to new house. A new home. I've moved out of my house, and am pausing for a month or two and then moving into a new house. New home. So I'm out shopping yesterday evening as I have a wedding this coming weekend and had thrown out all formal shirts … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening to
