Living on this amazing jewel of a planet it never ceases to amaze me how so much of what us humans do is simply insane, we invented capitalism, nuff said. So my mind started to wonder what aliens would make of it all, but then decided they’re probably nuts too.

Bush and Blair guilty of war crimes – this is not the news.
In November 2011 George Bush and Tony Blair were found guilty of war crimes by the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal and whilst this is not internationally binding, it paves the way for an internationally binding trial. Astonishingly, this news did not make it into the western media and, naturally, I have to wonder why? Like […]
Water is sacred to life.
Water is colourless, tasteless and odourless, beautiful beyond compare and without it there is no life.
There’s nothing wrong with mystery.
Ham Hill Country Park with a bit extra slipping through from another dimension. When I moved from London to Peasedown St John I had little idea how much living in London had stunted my being and how much waking up I had to do. In discovering this new world I had moved to I visited […]

To nicely complicate my life, I also became a transvestite, which was entirely a driven, […]
Out of the ordinary.

It is the one thing in my life that I dedicate time to, almost all my time, utterly focussed and single minded. […]
All power, no ego.
