AN EPIDEMIC, HEARING AIDS & A MAD OLD LADY

‘Scotland Abroad’ ~ ‘The game is now over, I’m glad that we played A wounded heart full of sorrow, nothing betrayed Guilt is love’s shadow yet I’ll never forget From the corner of my eye your silhouette’ from my song ‘Pain’ aka ‘Love’s Shadow’ True story. I spent a lot of time watching England eventually win

FOR THE RECORD YOU SHOULD KNOW I FEEL THE SAME

‘After The Storm’ by Zoolon or, better put; ‘The wild and windy night, That the rain washed away, Has left a pool of tears, Crying for the day’ – Paul McCartney from the song ‘Long & Winding Road’ I’ve been reading Arthurian tales from various sources. I got hooked. Thought I’d write some words about them. ‘The Lady of The Lake’

MAGPIES, FRENCH FRANCE & MUSIC

‘Class Graffiti’ Coming home from Canterbury the other day I saw a squished magpie in the road. Dead obviously. Magpies mate for life. The magpies partner was hanging around confused, flying this way and that, sometimes landing nearby, not convinced his or her partner was dead. I’m guessing the squished one was feeding on carrion

IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE

‘Five Albums Later’ When Paul McCartney had his dream in which the melody for what was to be his classic song ‘Yesterday’ came to him he had no words to start with. None. When he woke up the next morning all he could do was to throw any old words that fitted the melody at

10 DAYS AWAY

‘The End of The Beginning’ by Zoolon In a few hours’ time my acoustic and me are off to the middle of nowhere for 10 days. No internet access unless I can manage to take my mobile into a town or city. How surreal is that? No social media. Also, it maybe the last time

A WARNING IS NOT A PROMISE

‘Dreaming Colours the Daylight Steals’ Last week: The bloke at the top of the steps up to the library told me that the world would end tomorrow. He pointed out that love and hate will have nowhere to hide anymore and that there will never be another new day. I told him that I never

NEVER FORGOTTEN

‘Never Forgotten’ Mucking around with semi-protest song words on the guitar I suddenly realized I was playing to my ‘Rainbows End’ melody. Basically, I’d plagiarized myself. I’ve never done that before. Back to the drawing board. ENGLAND, OH ENGLAND At my door they try selling me their religion Online they want my money to sell me fame

SIT UP & SMILE

I was lucky to get hold of these two stone pieces the other day. The pic doesn’t do them justice. They’re much bigger than they look here and weigh a ton. The best part was that they cost me next to nothing. Happy days – I like them, I just don’t know exactly why although
