Read After Covid…13

Write about what you know, that's what they tell you. The problem is that I do not know these times, at all. These times have sprung up from the pages of novels that weave themselves around the possibility of a plague decimating the world's population. Interesting that the term, decimate, refers to the Roman habit... Continue Reading →

If you are reading this you have survived IT so far. The IT is the thing that can't be named. Think Macbeth, but only think it. You see, once it has taken to the air and spread its wings...Well, I think you get the message. I am writing this as a response to IT. I... Continue Reading →

Almost a thousand souls departed yesterday. Our strange new reality has thrown up lots of strange responses. Generally, the sunshine has become apparent and it is... Continue Reading →

And so the digital age rides to the rescue - NOT. I was trying to send some documents this morning. I was trying and trying and trying and...before this gets too predictable, I shall stop. Being somewhat reliant of digital technology and being caught in an organic shitstorm can leave us rather exposed. Technology has... Continue Reading →

Read After Covid…19

At last, we have reached the significant number, the one that we are all dreading. It's just another number on the list of numbers of diseases relating to their genetic structure rather than the disease. Therefore, viruses, and the diseases they cause, often have different names.  For example, HIV is the virus that causes AIDS. ... Continue Reading →
