The people you need

As I’ve gone through life I’ve met people who live to bring light into other’s lives. I know them, don’t see them often,  but when I do it’s like they know I needed what they have to give. Let me introduce you to one of them. Today,  just as I was starting my tired journey…

How to observe a painting

Have you ever been shown,  by one of those fantastic ‘go the extra mile’ art historians at an exhibit, how to observe a painting? They say the best way is to start with your nose practically touching it,  the colour, texture and vibrance filling your every sense.    You then move backwards,  one step at…

Corner piece.

I find myself in an afternoon with very little to do and,  unsurprisingly,  I find myself on the verge of tears.  I’m sat in my favourite coffee shop which I feel deserves an introduction…. Whether it’s raining or not there is a row of wooden tables outside,  mostly for when the staff have a fag…

Life is about listening to your favourite white plastic vinyl with the windows wide open, filter coffee in hand. Life is about exploring this beautiful world, one country at a time, photographing…

A cliche idea (Please read 1st)

So I’ve always wanted to write,  but never had the imagination to think of something original.  Maybe this is it,  maybe it isn’t.  But lets give it a ruddy good shot ey? I’ve always written a page here and there in an attempt to express myself quickly,  to tear the emotion out of my chest…
