Thoughts. Ideas. Scribbles.

  • Bamburgh on the Beach

    Bamburgh on the Beach

    I must have started this poem sometime ago. It must have been after visiting Bamburgh beach again – I don’t remember. Anyway, I found it recently and have made a few changes, mainly cutting stuff away. I put it here because it reminds me of the time when my children were young and we all… read more

  • We Own Love

    We Own Love

    There’s a fine line between love and suffering. Anyone who has loved deeply will know this. As you get older the fine line between the two becomes almost transparent.

    Free-Will Quickie

    A quick thought. It seems to me that there is a major flaw in the arguments made by those who like to suggest that free-will does not exist.
