To be or not to be..

I never read English Literature in my early days. That’s sad. It was a choice between ‘Sciences’ and ‘Literature’ –  a very sad bifurcation over which I had no control. However, now in these later years I can appreciate what I missed.   “To be, or not to be: thatRead More

I’m not a this sort of person

I often hear things of that nature from people e.g. “I’m not a computer person”, or “I’m not a driven by money sort of person”, or “I’m not a Nigela Lawson fan”, or “I’m not a Paxman person”, or “I’m not a Russell Brand person” or “I don’t like ToryRead More

Nano.. Nano!!

I’ve been thinking about my use of the words ‘the humans’. It seems to suggest that I’m an observer of them – and not connected to their kind. For sure I do feel that way a lot of the time. But looking back as to how I came to stepRead More

Dislike of intensity

I’ve been thinking again – as I do – over the last few days, about another phenomenon amongst the humans. I will reference this back to myself because I draw on my experience of how people interact with me. But what is this ‘intensity’ to which I refer? I alwaysRead More

Chess – how I became good at it.

I was thinking about when I was much younger in my early to mid-teens, when I used to play Chess. It was a most intriguing game for a number of reasons that I don’t intend to go into. I became quite good at it and made at least one NationalRead More

Why I despair for the human race..

I sometimes become despondent about the human race – for a number of reasons. I think to myself, that people of average intelligence surely must be able to read, understand, and apply some logic to what’s going on. Surely that sort of activity is what differentiates us from all otherRead More

Stupid questions and expectations

I’ve been thinking about the nature of our existence in relation to the need for money. If you don’t need money or are the type who would go ‘money isn’t everything’  – kindly leave now. Save yourself the time – really. For those who’d prefer to read on you doRead More

Where and how do I draw the line

Errrh.. what line? Somebody is about to ask. Tough – it’s that mysterious line in the sand. Read on or get stuffed. I’ve been reflecting on a certain theme over the last few weeks. I’ve been thinking about individuals who I have distanced myself from. By that I mean A]Read More

‘The Edge’ – no mistakes in the mind.

‘The Edge’ – is a film screened in 1997.  No – I’m not about to do a film review, so calm down. I had completely missed this film and only viewed last night on Lovefilm which is now ‘Amazon Prime’.  Recently I’ve become rather saddened that most Sci-Fi films theseRead More

How to get people to avoid me.

Over the years and especially more recently I’ve come to understand a sure way to get people to avoid you (i.e. me). Well – you might think that’s dead easy. After all, all you gotta do is be nasty, insult people, appear arrogant, develop offensive body odour (especially halitosis), orRead More
