Dear Pogue, My preparation to move home is progressing. As you are aware the decision has been taken to downsize considerably. I’m thinking that over the prolonged lockdown an awareness of how much space there is and what percentage was being used has been highlighted. This means that more than half the possessions will have … Continue reading Monday Musings
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.
Pogue, This song got a large mention in the letter I sent you this week. It was a driving force behind the direction of the whole blog. It encapsulates the spirit of the blog. It’s also one of the most viewed videos I have ever sent you. https://youtu.be/e3-5YC_oHjE Enjoy the song and embrace the journey. … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now
Dear Pogue, Tell me, who decides what is right and what is wrong? Indeed, where is the divide between so-called good and bad? If I was to draw a line and place a mark right in the middle, what would you place either side of the line? Well lies, lies are bad. I had a … Continue reading Maybe things just “are”.
Dear Pogue, This is a letter from self isolation. I know the whole country is in lockdown but as you know I flew round half of the world last week so I’m even more confined. I can’t even volunteer to help for another two weeks. But I’m okay. Life feels good sat here in an … Continue reading The Thin White Duke
Dear Pogue, I thought I’d like to return to the ‘Revolution’ after the last few letters. Stoke the fires if you like. Keep it alive. Are you ready? Ok, take your seats, baseball cap on backwards, sunglasses in position. Off we go. It has been said that God wrote only two books, which is a … Continue reading Here’s a good thing.
Dear Pogue, I thought I would write a follow up to our recent letter, You’re Worthless. It sort of stirred something up and I overheard a conversation or two. Let me start by setting the scene. As I write I am currently looking out of the window onto mountains. Yes, I am not at home … Continue reading Potential Revolution
Dear Pogue, So, you paused and listened when you came to the end of the last letter? What happened? Did you wait in stillness and silence? Silence really is the language of God and I hope that you’re learning that. But, assuming we agree that there is substance to the secret, what are we going … Continue reading What we going to do with the secret?
Dear Pogue, Right back at the start, in our first exchange of correspondence, words on paper, ink, messy finger prints (what would a letter be without a blotch or two?) uneven margins, you remember? Well we committed to our own personal attempt at a revolution. One that we would have for fun, spurred on and … Continue reading Let me tell you a secret.
Dear Pogue Tell me, do you have a list of your favourite things? Yeah, I know how it goes: “Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens”. Very good, but listen, I mean...not the clothes you bought this season, that you’ll wear and wear, then replace as the new … Continue reading Jon Boy
If you make a revolution, make it for fun, Don't make it in ghastly seriousness, Don't do it in deadly earnest, Do it for fun D H Lawrence - A Sane Revolution Dear Pogue, I have decided to write you a letter as opposed to sending an email or something on social media. … Continue reading Let’s Have A Little Revolution
