Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares

Posted on Tue, 11 Feb 2020

Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares is an example of everything which is wrong with the human race. I enjoyed this piece about the little conflicts that occur inside our heads and reasons behind them.  I can lose myself in the mug section in Homesense...

A fine tribute to these

Posted on Sun, 02 Feb 2020

A fine tribute to these incredible animals, to think they were once a staple part of our diet. I enjoyed the slippery, fluid movement throughout.  A shimmering length of muscle, who needs legs?

Superstition is addictive yes. Friday 13th puts some people on edge and makes them look for the dark side in everything. 'Ears to hear, supporting power will make good in time.' words makes me instantly feel more relaxed.

Posted on Sun, 13 Oct 2019

I can really relate to this and the pleasure you derive from walking in the forest. I think the Japanese refer to it as a 'forest bath'.  I wonder if there could ever be a return of some of the creatures we've lost now that we have too many deer...

Posted on Sun, 15 Sep 2019

This starts off like a painting I'd like to own and then zooms in like a drone on the microcosms which exist all around us. A wall may appear dead but on warm days watch carefully and it really does give birth. I remember holidaying a North Wales...
