MARIONETTES & SOMERSAULTS

Sometimes it’s a pain being Zoolon. Monday morning I was down in the kitchen having breakfast (Shreddies with a chopped banana). The news was playing to itself on the TV.  I wasn’t taking much of it in. Then, out of the blue I heard the newsreader say, “With police numbers dropping the Metropolitan Police are […]

ZOOLON & THE FESTIVAL

Most likely I will only have time for irregular visits to the blog at best for the next week as I’m going to be at the Festival Mondial des Theatres de Marionnettes in Charleville-Mézières. I’ll catch up when I get back. Random Thought: Before I sign off I have to say that I was in […]

I hope you enjoy; Rexie believes in magic Has done all along Shipwrecked and nowhere else to go Its time he learns to head back home   Rexie believes in […]

TRADING INSULTS

(a statue I spotted along West Cliff, Ramsgate – for reasons unknown, it seems to fit my song posted below) As I understand it the 38th parallel is the dividing line between North and South Korea. I think it was about 4 years ago when the North were talking about how close they were to […]
