Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.

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.

I Choose Peace

Morning Pogue, I choose peace. A strange way to start my letter to you but, and I’ll say it again, I choose peace. Let me explain. What I am choosing is not a quiet afternoon curled up in a corner away from the world with a good book (although that is always a very appealing … Continue reading I Choose Peace

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

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

Soul Food

Dear Pogue, I was thinking how much I had just enjoyed riding my motorbike in the sunshine. I rode through miles of countryside and even saw a kite hovering above the road. As I reflected I said to myself: “This is Soul Food”, which may have been an expression that I had just invented, but … Continue reading Soul Food

Screw You

Dearest Pogue, How are you, you frontline warrior, battling the world with a stethoscope and personal protective equipment? You’re doing a great job. And here’s a little distraction. You remember the Beetles? Well you obviously don’t as they were long gone before you were even a twinkle in your mother’s eye but you know of … Continue reading Screw You

A beautiful soul.

Dear Pogue, Recently someone commented that beauty was not something that resided in looks, rather, in their opinion, it was a quality found in the spirit or soul of a person. Not something superficial but a deep rooted quality. That said, I want to put it out there that we are all, initially, temporarily attracted … Continue reading A beautiful soul.

Airing my soul

Dear Pogue, Yesterday I did something I haven’t done in long, long time. I took a kite and flew it. More precisely, I went to the beach and flew my kite. The very best of days! The Classical Chinese described kite flying as “airing the soul” and there may be something in that. Uncomplicated yet … Continue reading Airing my soul

Does it make you smile?

Dear Pogue, Sometimes it's the smallest things that matter, that make a difference. A smile from someone we vaguely know that makes us feel welcome. "Thank you" , said with sincerity whilst being looked in the eye tells us that the effort was all worth it. Or a cup of well made coffee on an … Continue reading Does it make you smile?
