Hello, its been a while

Hi friends,

Yes it has been a while since my last post, life getting in the way busy time of year for everyone but getting back on track. As I have said before it is surprising how much time it takes to maintain a blog its more than you would think so I have more respect for bloggers than I did before having now gone through the process, as well as that putting out weekly podcasts it has added to the process. But thats not a complaint its just something learned along the way. As for the podcasts I would like to keep doing them as much as possible but promising them weekly is alot to achieve along with the blog and work, however I still intend puting them out as often as I can. I would like them to be more broad but still include music and hopefully talk about other subjects as well and even guests from time to time. A big part of it I would like is for you to get involved and tell us about your life where you live and a bit about yourself and your interests.  If you are interested in doing that you can contact me through the contact envelope on the left hand side of this page. I do love posting and really do enjoy hearing from other people and learning about there life it’s what keeps me motivated.

A place to be just me



Hi Friends,

I’m sure we all have places that we enjoy going to, to chill out and forget about our daily stresses, but how many places do you have that let you be you in the here and now. A place where you forget about who you are and where you are from. Just your present self being part of your surroundings. If I had read the above words years ago I wouldn’t have understood the concept. Take this place in the picture above for instance. This is Southerness light house, it is on the south west coast of Scotland called the solway coast. It sits on the most Southerly point of the coast hence the name. We came camping here this year a couple of times and my heart tells me I want to go back.

You see when I’m sitting on the rocks watching the ocean toss and turn and wrestle with itself and, seeing birds dive into the water like Olympic divers to catch fish whilst the wind mildly blows across the sandy beach,  I find myself at one with my surroundings and feel part of it here and now. Yesterday doesnt exist neither does tomorrow, even the next minute is not thought of. In fact thinking doesnt take place just the wonder of witnessing the here and now.

The early morning Airport run

3.30am friends, somehow I managed to pull my self out of bed get dressed and come round to some kind of awakened consciousness. My 20 year old son meanwhile who will be boarding a plane to Salou in about 2 hours has been up showered and hyper with the anticipation of his  holiday ahead. Stepping out to the car, the still darkened town was still and quiet at least until I started the engine of my diesel Volvo V70, just one pick up on the way and that was to pick up my Sons Girlfriend 4 miles away.

Having made the planned collection of ones Sons Girlfriend, Continue reading The early morning Airport run

Good Morning

Friends, its  a better day here than it has been over the last few days. The sun isn’t exactly shinning but its not raining and that for us scots is a bonus.

It is one thing that has been very apparent over the last few years and that is the wetter weather over what would traditionally be called the summer months. May and June seem to be quite good months and then it seems to be longer periods of rain, quite heavy at times. Last year 2015 it seemed to rain from August to Feb 2016 Continue reading Good Morning
