Another year has passed in my life and I am older. In terms of experience there has probably not been a year where I learned as much as I have in the one just past. It feels like I have moved into the last phase of my life, not that it is over already, but … Continue reading It’s been a long time
A film diaphanous as a ghost Separates me from the objects of desire A path leads onwards Guarded by the creature of my own creating How to utter the spell That opens the door That parts the veil And frees me It is written in script That defies interpretation By my conscious mind And must … Continue reading Ineffable
In the film, ‘The Matrix’, Neo, the main protagonist, is offered a choice by Morpheus, the leader of the resistance movement. After giving some nuggets of information about the reality he inhabits, Morpheus holds out his hands, one contains a red capsule and the other a blue one.

I’m trying to find some reason to write a blogpost but there is nothing. I had an idea the other day and started, somewhat unenthusiastically, to type. The idea wouldn’t develop from its germ state, the usual tendrils of thought that appear failed to show up. I researched a bit and found the internet to … Continue reading No, still nothing

The adherents of this idea claim that gender is what you feel you are, and they have become a big player in the cancellation culture that is growing in … Continue reading When is a man not a man?

It is hard to be specific about why this might be, but it is possible that the total absence of 'news' from my life may be the key. I never received the … Continue reading Maggie, where are you?

However, the one … Continue reading The Great Bake-Off
What did you think, I wonder, when you read that title? Was your first thought that I was about to go off on a racist, white supremacist rant in reaction to the ridiculous revisionist bullshit that's expressing itself like pus oozing from a rancid boil in our society today? Sorry to disappoint. I am white, … Continue reading White and Proud
