4.05PM – 4.13PM TUESDAY AFTERNOON

Vagrant’s Shadow, Lost Back in May when creativity had taken a break, and wanting something to spark my mind, I thought I’d try and capture instant, pure unprovoked thoughts and write them down. See how they turned out. Anyway, I already capture sound using a stereo-recorder when composing Sound Art – things like that of

STEFAN & GARDENS IN THE AIR

(Stefan the Heron) It was good that the camera had decent zoom otherwise Stefan the Belgian Heron – who I thought was just an OK, plastic garden ornament until he flew away in style – would have missed the cut for this post. I did try to get to chat with Stefan from a distance

‘THE WORDS & THOUGHTS OF A DYSLEXIC MUSICIAN’

(Cover art by Rachel Carrera) I was going to give this book the title, ‘Things That Happen to Me When I Glaze Over’ or ‘Pieces of Me’. Both of those were more or less accurate but, in the end, I decided upon ‘The Words & Thoughts of a Dyslexic Musician’ because that is what it

MENTOS & EXHALATION GIRL

‘Where it Begins’ by Zoolon A true story from yesterday. I was in the queue at the Post Office down town when the lady in front of me turned around to ask me if I had the time. It’s one of those loaded questions that can catch you out, so I played it safe and

TRACEY SEAGULL & A MEMORY STICK

‘Tracey the Seagull’ by Zoolon I met Tracey last week when I was crossing the Channel from Dover to Calais on the way to Dunkirk. When she posed for this photo I had no idea just what a freeloader seagull she was. After the photoshoot, outward bound, just outside of Dover Harbour, Tracey had a

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

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
