In these stranger-than-fiction times I would urge you to widen the net of your information sources. The story of Covid-19 and the media frenzy surrounding it should give you cause for concern. The hysteria is designed to distract us from something more sinister – as yet unknown, (here’s a clue). As part of my own […]
People die everyday. Of lots of things. It’s the human condition. Just now the world is locked down for fear of spreading a virus that is little more harmful than the common cold. It’s the most absurd situation one could imagine. Really, it’s daft. Fear of death and projected fear of loss of a loved […]
In times of uncertainty it’s easy to allow the feeling of anxiety to take hold. The great trick of our age has been to convince us that we are ‘safe’, that we have ‘security’. It’s a fallacy that needs must be curtailed. There is no such thing as safety. Only chaos. The idea that because […]
Some years ago I set up a web domain, had a logo designed and created a business plan for an entertainment agency. The idea was to run music festivals to celebrate local music. We even had a stage built. During that time I attended a business start up course at an incubation centre attached to […]
Today a friend shared a riff in the Emergence Magazine about the Celtic tale of Finnegas. It’s a poignant myth that reflects on the state we find ourselves in during these strange times. This resonated with me in a way that only myth can. On a primal, earth and sky, human level. It’s time we […]
We are facing a global crisis, of a magnitude which has not been experienced in recent history. Our response must be radical and swift. The implication of this action will remain for many years to come. The world will change dramatically. With trust and cooperation, how different could things be? Here’s a riff by Yuval […]
We’re on lockdown. Day three here in India and already I’ve got itchy feet. I was not made to sit indoors all day. The mandatory curfew is expected to last three weeks. We’re allowed out to collect basic provisions but not more than that. Punishments for non-compliance here are more swift and direct than elsewhere […]
The UK government has made a pigs ear of handling the global pandemic. Action was not taken at the appropriate time. Slow to respond, clumsy in its execution and frankly, sinister in its reasons. We are being asked to prioritise the health and well being of the elderly and otherwise unwell. It is a wonderful […]
A friend shared this video recently. It struck me as quite a remarkable statement. What do you think?
As the world begins to lock down we are entering a phase of deep rest. An opportunity simply to be. Stillness. It’s a rare and curious gift. The abundance of time afforded in this moment now stretches out before us. Use it wisely.
