Where The Wilds Things Are

He is usually a mild man, known for his gentle demeanour and care for others. His smile is almost never absent from his face and his efforts are always on behalf of someone else. An e mail or call is never going to be a selfish one,…

In communication less can be more

Recently I went to a concert at the Royal Festival Hall.  Having spent many evenings at the RFH over my 25 years in London I realised on entering the auditorium that all my previous visits had only involved the bar or restaurant – clearly I’m not as highbrow as I thought.

Teetering on the brink

My  guilty pleasure is action films.  I’m fairly indiscriminate although I do think Under Siege with Steven Seigel may have been scrapping the barrel somewhat.  I like the mindless moralising, the very clear demarcation between good and evil and the fact that you don’t get to witness the cleaning up after Arnie, Harrison or Tom has saved us. 

My favourite without a…

Wild Writing & Doing What I Do...

Of course when Nick talks about “Wild Mind Writing” I become very alert. Everyone in the group seems to have heard of it – a practice, attributed to Natalie Goldberg, by which you write, free-form, without edit, censure or pause for a period of…

A Dying Passion

Starting in London, I cycled with my friend Felix and broadly followed the 2016 Tour de France route over the Pyrenees and into northern Spain
