What a year! I mean, really….so much evil and uncomfortable stuff happened that I can barely express my exhaustion at the relentless turmoil and frustration! We have seen the rise of blatant and deliberate lying as a means to gain power. Not the old fashioned covert version of lies but genuine, in your face, couldn’t […]

Getting away from myself.

When I was a kid, I really wanted a microscope. I had visions in my head of whirling Worlds of tiny creatures, spinning and darting around in a drop of water or watching the platelets in a pinprick of blood, as they collided and hurried around in their life giving missions.

They are real and clownish but as deadly as Lex Luthor ¬†and The Penguin on an “Evil Boys Day Out!” in Margate. We have Trump with his outrageous hair and his dreadful bigoted views, trampling everyone […]
