IT’S LIKE YOU DON’T EXIST

‘Cleo the Wise Owl’ She doesn’t talk that much but she did mention that without bees, seeds & trees we are nothing.  Songs that that tell stories are fascinating me lately. I’m not sure why, although the plus with a song is – providing the melody is a good one – that a lyricist can

NERO ON A GOOD DAY

‘Fiddling While Rome Burns’ by Shena Tschofen NERO ON A GOOD DAY North, East, South & West The Earth, a burning star What’s not on fire is melting While I sit back and play guitar Like Nero on a good day I talk a better game than the one I play Our oxygen is running

PRIDE & TIME

‘Everything there is’ I can’t stop myself thinking about plastic. Boring but true. Like having a song on a loop inside your head, plastic has got under my skin. It’s like I’ve been set up to hate the stuff. That’s a good thing. Media sometimes does that. Not always. As a result I’ve ended up

LOUD QUESTIONS

‘A Hill with a View’ by Zoolon Just ½ an hour ago I got stopped by a lady in the street who said, “I’m in dire need of puzzles”. True. I had no idea if this was a question or not, so I grinned a hopeless grin and walked on. Ultra odd. Early hours, Sunday.

BECOMING ZOOLON

This ‘something’ was written in March 2016 following an 18-month drought of creativity, triggered by having discovered the crap reality that having a decent degree doesn’t mean you just walk into a half decent job (or any job). I only stumbled on these words the other day tucked inside an old guitar case I keep
