Confused and primitive to the core.

I was motivated to write this having reflected on my interactions with the human species recently. They pride themselves as being several notches above other animals. They have built very large and complicated structures. Their intelligence has allowed them the privilege of creating weapons that could destroy the whole planetRead More

Looking away

Recently I was on the way into a supermarket. Nothing special about that you might think. But as I was about to enter I spotted a former work colleague – one of my own batch of professionals, who I trained with. I hadn’t seen her for about a year. ItRead More

‘White Lies’ – just amazing

Recently I discovered ‘White Lies’ – the group. Well when I heard ‘To lose my life’ a few days ago, I thought to myself “Hey, Bowie is back!”. So it wasn’t David Bowie, but so what? These guys are just brilliant. I mean I can’t get their songs outta myRead More

What’s a psychiatrist?

Recently I was in the company of a colleague who is a psychiatrist (aka shrink). We were walking into a large supermarket. He’s saying hello to the chap who’s greeting customers. The conversation goes as follows: Chappy: So what if you don’t mind I ask do you do? Shrink: I’mRead More
