forest of dean

I got a call from the tree whisperer asking me if wanted to go spend some time in the forest with him and his sister.  One of the things I miss about the U.S. is being able to hike in the woods for days without ever seeing a road or clearing for miles.  In the UK, this is a rarity. …

boxing day

I’m in that inevitable twilight zone between Christmas and New Year. Mentally I am finished with 2007, but not quite yet ready for 2008, which leaves me in limbo. I went for a short hike today, up into the hills to see the White Horse. In the afternoon I had some lovely haggis and then packed my truck up like …

Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas to everyone out there who celebrates Christmas as Christian holiday.  Happy holidays to everyone else whatever your religious or non-religious persuasion happens to be.  I’m celebrating the day with family and friends in Westbury.  There will be plenty of good cheer, plenty of eating, and plenty of gift giving. As I am actually writing this on the 24th …

holiday

I’m officially on holiday. I initially thought I would take a break from blogging, but I have since decided that I will continue even on me hols because as I wrote in post 114 every day is a holiday.  I’m not a big Christmas fan, but I do use the time to just hang out with family, reflect on the …

ubber cool

I guess it’s cool To sit in an airport Waiting for a cheap airline In your black shoes Black trousers Black jumper Black bag Silver/black watch And yellow sunglasses Only there’s no sun Inside the terminal

american girl

I wonder if this girl will ever shut up.  She’s been talking non-stop on our flight up to Glasgow The sound of the propeller prop turning cannot compete with her high pitched squeal and moaning She’s going on about How the British pronounce “Worcester” and drive on the left How they put milk in their tea and call their pants …

that which you seek is causing you to seek

I picked this little gem from an email I received: When the student is ready the teacher appears. When the thinker is ready the idea appears. When the artist is ready the inspiration appears. When the servant is ready the purpose appears. When the athlete is ready the performance appears. When the leader is ready the vision appears. When the …

is this the one

i came out of my mother’s womb like i was here to stay a smacked ass and a snip made me change my mind now i pass my days in pursuit of fine women trying all i can to get back in i know it’s pointless but i pray: let this one be it for god’s sake and I give …

the average american male

I finished reading The Average American Male and I thought what a grim commentary on the American Male psyche. What is even more scary is that Chad Kultgen isn’t far off the mark in describing what men think about most of the day, which I am sure you have already guessed, is sex, videogames and more sex. I remember one …

death’s other kingdom

If I thought that I were making Answer to one that might return to view The world, this flame should evermore cease shaking. But since from this abyss, if I hear true, None ever came alive, I have no fear Of infamy, but give thee answer due. Dante’s Inferno (Canto XXVII, lines 61 – 66) 1. Pursuit of Flesh The …

I was bored out of my mind at a presentation when I drew this: (Click the image for a larger view)

what do you think of barack obama?

From what I have read, I like the guy.  He seems to be a person with vision.  People, who know what they are about, inspire me.  The fact that he has come from a modest background and worked his way to be in a position to run for the Presidency of the United States as a serious contender.  And he …

i’m back

Ah…I’m back from the land of the sick.  I’m rarely ever ill.  But when I am, I have found that the best way for me to get back on my feet quickly is to hibernate for 24-48 hours.  I eat very little and I sleep loads. And now, like the bear waking up from hibernation, I am hungry as hell …
