THE LOWEST POINT OF MY LIFE

‘The Exmoor Ponies of The White Cliffs’ by Zoolon The other day I saw this Japanese tourist girl taking a selfie stood next to a petrol pump at the garage down the road. I thought, ‘why?’ She seemed happy enough though. There was no madness in her eyes. Maybe she thought it was a vintage

THE WEIRDLY DIVINE KATE

‘Don’t Shoot’ by Zoolon As per usual I wanted to open up this post with something arguably funny. A story of real life type funny. It’s just that, for me, funny has to be put on the back-burner in these days of depressive politics and cruelty home and away. The crumbling state of humans/humanity has

1860 – ‘FRANCE HAS GOT TALENT’

‘Summer Storm in Pas-de-Calais’ by Zoolon The first song ever recorded. That’s a big thing. These days, we take our music for granted forgetting that before we were able to capture sound all there was, was live music and birdsong. No piece of music could be duplicated exactly the same as each performance of even

ONE PIECE OF FRUIT & AN ICEBERG

(Me at home with the Lilliputians) This is true. Not so long ago after uni I worked for a while in a café. I’m not made for the catering trade. I glaze over too easily. One morning the owner asked me to go into town and buy an iceberg. At the time I remember thinking

DINING WITH THE TURKS

‘How to Confuse Facebook’ by Zoolon Recently I’ve mentioned a mate of mine who has a habit of messing up. I think he may have surpassed himself on the stupid front this week. He says, “It’s took me five hours to fit a roller blind.” I say, “Five hours? Never.” He says, “I spent two

A SMALL DOG & RUDYARD KIPLING

‘How much? Seriously?’ – Cute dog. No price tag. The other day, a day when shadows were having a rest, I was trying to get a clear head before going back to recording my new stuff, so I took a walk around the next town along the coast from where I live. I can’t claim

THE TIN MAN, SNOWFLAKES & A POEM

‘Chasing the Sun’ by Zoolon I oiled the creaky hinges to the door into the eaves of my attic studio today and for the first time understood why the Tin Man out of The Wizard of Oz had such an addiction to oil. Saturday morning, I woke up to a curtain of snowflakes charging horizontally

GLACIER MINTS & THE HUMAN MICROSCOPE

A photo I took last year called ‘No Parking’ I’m on thin ice with this. I’m only posting it because what happened made me laugh at the time. It concerns my father who also blogs on WP, hence the ‘thin ice’. A while back the old man damaged his left eye. He never got it

BITTERSWEET & THE TICKING CLOCK

THE THIEF FROM THE EAST

I was having a breakfast of hot chocolate & pain aux raisins in the café this morning when I spotted this black bin enjoying a cup of coffee. He didn’t have a lot to say for himself. Odd. A couple of nights back, about 1am I saw from my attic window two little fox cubs
