In The Light Of Darkness

'There but for the grace of God', but God wasn't watching when the shooter came. God took his eye off the ball when the killer entered. God didn't hear, or interfere, when the terrorist started his rampage. Neither the rapport of the gun nor the screams of its targets reached the heavenly host. In the... Continue Reading →

Braver Again…

I was looking through the news this morning and found yet another story about a famous person who has suffered from mental issues. The guy was a sportsman, a top-class goalkeeper, who nose-dived into that pit of despair and anxiety that seems to be affecting more and more of the 'normal' population. Because of his...

Just An Airing

From The Piper Book 3. I just wanted to let this one out of the bag. It will be edited for publication. I like it, if you do as well please like. In the afternoon heat, the young hunter waited in the shade of a rock face. The horses were tied up to a tree... Continue Reading →

I, a husband for over twenty one years, woke up with terrible stomach cramps on the eve of my visit to the doctor's... Continue Reading →

Monday…

I don't know why but Mondays always come along like that train you should not really be on. They always follow Sundays and they spend that day fermenting wrong thoughts; dread.

Through The Eye Of A Needle

I cannot imagine immense wealth and while we talk in millions some of the truly rich use billions or trillions. Whilst I look at my pension thimble, these guys literally own the earth. And one name came out at me from history, Mansa Musa. Some big caravan. Although the non-tax paying Amazon founder Jeff Bezos... Continue Reading →
