Gotcha Moments

As we ride along in that open top car called life, there are a few moments that I’m gonna call gotcha moments, that shift and alter everything. I’m having one now as readers of my last post (all three of you) will have discovered. It’s like having a nightmare from which you don’t awaken and actually have to resolve rather than just calm down from. Suddenly, things are crystal clear. I should have walked away years ago. It wasn’t a fit but since I had sacrificed so much to be in that relationship, I surely didn’t want to give up on it. By the way, this is from my perspective. I’m sure she has her own perspective and its probably equally valid for her. Now I’m sat here trying to

Who Am I?

Good question. Funny thing is that I have spent years trying to figure this out. I have met different parts of my psyche in meditation and for a while, I thought I knew who I was – warts and all – or probably better put as Mr. Angry and the others. But, you know, that isn’t who I am. Nope. It’s who I thought I was. Actually, I now know I haven’t got a clue who I am. When you live with someone – a wife or a partner – for 30 odd years, you become someone else. Then when suddenly, after all that time with a special someone in your life (or a special two someones over that 30 odd years), you find your self single. Then, you look

Poltergeist

The third episode in the Paranormal Eyewitness Kindle shorts is Poltergeist – The Noisy Ghosts… Most people, on hearing the word Poltergeist, will instinctively think of the movie of that name. If they are from my generation, they will be thinking of the original Spielberg movie complete with the scene with a swimming pool filled with muddy water and skeletons (in researching for this book, I discovered that those skeletons were real as real skeletons were cheaper to buy than plastic ones at the time!). I mention this because it has remained a nightmare image for me over the years. If you go over to Reddit and look on the ghost pages, you will see a lot of references to poltergeist and many of them are nothing of the kind

Fire!

I have a new song and intend it to be the ‘theme’ song for my new novella – Lord of the Elements… due out July 21st. There’s a fire in my soul Fire in my … Fire Burn, Burn, Burn Fire in my belly Fire in my speech Burning Burn, Burn, Burn There’s a smoulder inside my body A flame within my soul Burning Rising on a wave of passion Fire flames my desire For you Burn, Burn, Burn The fire is inside of me The fire is inside of you We flame Flame

A Soccer Summer

From a football perspective, I don’t much like summer. It’s difficult to resist googling ‘Hull City News’ but every time I do I wonder why. If there is a media that loves ‘false news’ it sure is the sports media and so all summer long you get to read about who is buying all of your best players and who might be coming to replace them and frankly, most of the time, it is pure garbage. However, I can never quite resist reading the lurid headlines anyway and always find myself somewhat disappointed to find out who we are losing….. Harry Maquire was a blow but who can blame the lad… 80k a week! It’s obscene. The there is pre-season. I’m also a bit of a fool there too following

Humanity

If I owned life, I’d fly Flap my wings and rise up into the sky I’d laugh at everything I see I’d become the opposite of me If I was the one and only God I’d play tricks on you all you see I’d reward the one you least expected to be My favorite human in humanity To me this is a silly game The rules are written by another me And I long yes long to be free Let me be, let me be me
