THE BEARS DO BATTLE

(Winter in England – the view from my window at 11AM the other day) So, I was walking about in town looking for a new keyboard when I overheard two little kids discussing, “Who do you think would win if Winnie the Pooh and Paddington Bear had a fist fight?”  The random thought part of

CASTAWAY

(a photo of a sequined cushion taken with a microscope attachment for a mobile phone – my excuse is that I was bored senseless at the time I took this) Over what was a good Christmas – even though it mainly comprised of putting the spreadsheet of all spreadsheets in the history of spreadsheets together

ZOOLON’S CHRISTMAS PRESENT FOR ONE & ALL

(the artist looks to be Olbingski – I think) Since ‘Zoolon’ being on social media I’ve had quite a few requests from people asking if ‘ERASING THE 38TH’ is available to download. I’ve never included it in any of my albums previously. I’ve posted the song on this blog before so some of you will

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).

ALL WINTER LONG

There’s always something random, surreal even, to be seen if you keep your eyes open. I got up at silly o’clock yesterday to go the cinema to catch the new Star Wars movie. The older, large bloke behind me in the queue to buy tickets got himself a triple scoop strawberry ice cream cone…really! It

EYES

(A view of France from England I took yesterday including my mother who ended up paying for my breakfast a little earlier – she should have realized I don’t carry cash or remember pin numbers) Walking around town today looking at people just getting on with their different lives it reminded me to give this

SMILE WITH THE SUN

  Despite accidentally killing my special pocket compass (as mentioned in my last post), I still might get to The North Pole as I’ve now got the compass app on my iPhone.  Having said that the phone will probably need a charge every 100 meters or so if it runs true to current form and

ZOOLON’S DEAD COMPASS

(My dead compass, now in the care of the compass angel) When I dropped my compass on the floor and saw it was dead my first thought was, ‘I’ll never make it to The North Pole now’. Then I remembered no one had ever fulfilled my ultimate Christmas wish of a dozen huskies, plus a
