Decisions and consequences

Why do people make decisions at all? What to cook, when to cook, what car to buy, what phone, what action to take, what job, when to give notice.. and so on. Life is full of decisions. Ultimately most people in their ordinary lives make decisions because they wish forRead More

Knock on the door

Well, I’m making breakfast this morning – around 10:00 AM – and I hear the doorbell ring. No – I didn’t think that the ‘authorities’ had come for me, finally. So I step into my storm porch and see a man and a child. He’s smartly dressed in suit andRead More

Quote of the day

Even if you’re in a minority of one, the truth is still the truth.  – Mahatma Ghandi

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

[And to be 200% clear I am not saying that the author wrote the blog with the angle that I see it, even if my perception is co-incidentally correct. ThisRead More

Non-sentient life

See photo below. Yes they are alive – well so I assumed – because some of them moved and there was no smell of rotting animal coming from them. This photo is taken in Bull Ring Indoor Market 2014-02-15 around 10:30 AM. Even if they are not alive I wishRead More

Saying nice things–by Scrooge!

It’s that time of year when I’ve been receiving the odd season’s greetings – and have been forced to send one or two to various folk. Yes – you got that. People and people on behalf of organisations are emailing me over the last two weeks to say “Seasons Greetings”,Read More

The power of attitude

What is attitude? Where and how does it arise? What is it’s power? Does it have power? What is power? A power is anything that has influence over our being. So I have the power to direct myself to type this, therefore I am in power at this point. IfRead More
