Fragile with power
What on earth am I on about now!? I ‘heard’ hundreds thinking it. Calm down. This is metaphor. Oh dear I should be more cautious really cuz it’s a new world where metaphor has been replaced by the concretised thinking often seen on social media. Yuh know – this isRead More
What can be learned from the stupid?
The pandemic period has assaulted me with stupidity – left, right, centre, top and down. It has been a very painful period. Some will say, “Well, you didn’t have to take in all that stupidity. You could have just looked elsewhere.” Before I get into that get into the interviewRead More
Not enough time?
One of the commonest words I hear from my close circle of contacts is ‘later‘. The next is ‘I’ll check’ – like do I need to know? Why not check first and then say ‘done it’? I don’t know. Jeeez! Maybe people feel they are being polite or some nonsense.Read More

The President of the United States of America has been described as “morally lost and confused“. This is what Christianity Today said, calling for Donald Trump’s removal. Just to be clear (JTBC), this is their opinion. Did I say this was my opinion? I did NOT! Did I imply thisRead More
Walker’s treatise on human nature
As much of my time is spent thinking about human nature, I revisit ‘the’ Treatise on Human Nature by David Hume. I would have read many parts of this in my youth, which I would have forgotten – though some of the ideas would remain somewhere in my subconscious orRead More
