THE LADY WHO SPEAKS OF INTERESTING THINGS

‘Earlier That Night’ – adapted from a photo by Christian Lagereek Why me? I couldn’t work out what was happening at first. The sky looked weird. There’s not too much light pollution on the coast yet this night the sky had no flickering stars nor the black blanket the stars take a rest on. It

THE CLOAK

‘In The Days Before Tomorrow’ I got a marketing brochure selling vitamins and an easier menopause in the post. I’ve no idea how they got my name and address. The thing was that on the front cover it said ‘START THE NEW YEAR ON THE RIGHT FOOT’. It wasn’t a lot of use to me,

RUSTY TINS & VIOLINS

‘On The Outside Looking In – A Travel Agent’s Shop Window’ It’s Christmas any day now. Stating the obvious, this year is nearly over. Time to give my head a break for a few days. I’ll catch up with you all soon. The main thing is that I’d like to thank all of you for

TWO FACES

‘China Album Cover’ On the one hand it’s been a good week as I’ve just got my music into China. Hopefully the bespoke for ‘China only’ album ‘All Winter Long’ will be heard there via all the major streaming platforms. That’s the plan anyway. On the other hand, I’ve got the flu and and can’t

THE DAY THE TREES DISAPPEARED

Zoolon’s Simple Take on Trees I wouldn’t like to be a tree in the Amazon right now. Having said that I probably wouldn’t particularly want to be a tree in the first place. I’d never get to see The Arsenal play again or get to eat macaroni cheese. Then there’s dogs with an urgent need

MAYBE TOMORROW, MAYBE NOT

‘The Long Way Home’ My song ‘All Winter Long’ off the ‘Rainbows End’ album seems to fit the mood of the new words that I found washed up on the beach – sort of. SONG FOR ANOTHER DAY Dreamers dance while dancers dreamSongbirds love while lovers sing No frozen sun, no burning snow Maybe tomorrow,

LETTER IN A BOTTLE

‘Claudette Colbert still from Cecil B. DeMille’s ‘Cleopatra’ movie 85 years ago’ He was thinking to himself that he’d never written a letter. A proper letter, using a pen and paper. A letter he would write, sign and post. He decided he’d have a go although the absence of pre-emptive text was worrying him. His

‘THE HOTEL CONFINEMENT’

Artwork by Lee Miller- ‘Surrealism’ It was on the BBC News. The story of Bethany. An innocent 17 year old being treated worse than a serial killer held in solitary confinement because in this so called great land the bigwigs haven’t got a compassionate clue what to do to help her. I won’t rant on

SEAGULLS, CROWS & PIGEONS

‘Tuesday, 11AM: No Sign of Life’ Unless you’re composing to a specific theme, deciding on a title for an instrumental piece isn’t always easy. The title has to reflect the music. I suppose it’s a bit like naming a kid after its been born. When there’s lyrics there is always a way to find a

ZOOLON – THE NEW 007?

‘Milo the laser chaser’ What an interesting couple of days in the life of Zoolon. First of all I’d taken a visit to a pal of mine and his girlfriend who had just moved into a new flat they’d bought. It’s a nice place. Better still, not long after I arrived so did Milo the
