Blame it on Climate Change…

I’m not selling as many books recently. I blame climate change. After all, it is the thing to blame these days. The unassailable truth that climate change is the biggest, ugliest threat to everyone cannot be argued against. So, yes, climate change is slowing sales of my books and it has to stop! I read an article the other day that really brought home this blame on climate mentality of the modern world. It was about aging bridges across the US. The story was about how these are not being properly maintained but…. with climate change, these bridges were bound to fail and cost lives! Of course. It surely couldn’t be a maintenance issue could it? Nah – climate. Then there are the wildfires in CA. Climate change? No –

Islands

  The music floats on aural highways Conjuring a mood and kindling memories A certain sadness creeping in Knowing only I experience this feeling In exactly this way in this moment Since slowly passed away Your words linger and may charm or sting Depending on the mood you bring The body language can also be read You are a book that emanates from a hole in your head But I cannot truly understand you No matter what words you say I am an island, a castaway I am God’s joke – I hear him chuckle Knowing that I can never share Never know how you truly feel Never know if you really care You are an island, faraway A distant shore seen through the haze Untouched save by the waves

Quantum Magic and The Elements

Looking for a fast-paced, thriller full of real magic, twists and turns, that will keep you reading beyond bedtime? Try The Last Observer and its’ prequel The Lord of the Elements…. Here is what ‘Vine Voice’ Bonnie Cehovet has to say about The Last Observer… I found this to be an incredible book, with a strong plot, well defined characters, and a very in-depth understanding of the material discussed (quantum physics, reality, the power of observation and more). It so reminded me of a Sherlock Holmes era story, with its twists and turns. I am sure that I will find the need to read this story again and again! And here is what Paul Hilton has to say about The Lord of the Elements…   A great read for anyone

A Little Bit of Toast?

Many, many moons ago, in a far off Universe and another life, I was stage manager at Aston University Student’s Union. We occasionally held mid week concerts featuring local talent and it was during one of these that I met a band called Street band.  Street band were professional, banged out great music and fun to be around. We hired the band a few times and I got to know them pretty well including their manager and front man – a young man by the name of Paul Young. I liked them so much that when asked to organize an Aston Geology party, we hired…. Street band and had fun all evening. I recall, they brought toast. Toast became their defining moment as a band. It was their big hit.

The Metadata of Magic

I have written much about the nature of reality and how to create reality both in novels like The Last Observer and in little books like – The New You. The other night, I had this very strange dream that I believe fits into the theme of reality. In it, I woke up one morning and could read the metadata associated with everything I saw. ie. I could read the data about the objects I was seeing. I did this simply by looking at an object. The metadata then streamed into my head telling me everything I needed to know about it. This skill allowed me to have a lot of fun in my dream. Interestingly enough, when I awoke, I could still recall a lot of the dream details

Am I Big?

This evening, I realized I needed some business shirts for a trip next week to London. I duly set off for the mall and Marks & Spencers. On arrival, I realized that I had no idea what size I needed! I managed to find a friendly assistant who measured me….. She told me 43 to 44 collar size. It was only when I started to look at said shirts that I made the realization that I am actually quite big! Firstly, almost every shirt I liked didn’t have anything bigger than a 42 or – even worse – was ‘slim fit’. At this stage I need to ask – who the hell wears slim fit? Suddenly, everything is slim fit. Slim fit shorts, T-shirts and even trousers. Let’s understand each

Cold-Hearted Girl

A song on the last album is cold-hearted girl. The actual riff that drives the song is something I have played with for decades – probably since 1974! I finally found a use for it. The lyrics were sang without any preparation – I just let the music take me and sang whatever came out… which was,   Cold hearted girl Cold hearted girl Cold hearted girl Cold hearted girl Outside its cold as ice Reminds me of your heart Your empty words That broke us apart Its plain to me that you think of yourself So now its goodbye My Joanna Cold hearted Cold Hearted Cold Hearted  Girl Outside the snow is falling Its filling your heart That frozen smile you use when you leave Its plain to me
