Since my ‘News update post‘ we’ve had the completion of a few important elections world-wide. The election which ‘seemingly’ most of the world has been interested in, has been the US one. I stand by my tweet concerning that election and agree with most of what another Phil has to say on the matter. Making … Read more

Enemies of the Village – Relatives, frienemies and strangers with agendas

EnemiesOfTheVillage

IN CONTEXT Hopefully, you would have already read both ‘part 1’ and ‘part 2’ of the ‘It takes a village’ posts. Reading other posts, such as ‘It’s important to remember’ and ‘Love and colour’, are also relevant, as they give additional understanding for this real-life scenario, to be understood in the correct context. It’s obviously … Read more

Why it takes a village – (Part 2 of 2)

It Takes a Village

In part one, I covered some of our personal experiences and history. We take our parental role seriously and we understand that effective parenting and leadership, is about influence and motivation to positive action. Life has those unknown external elements which are beyond our immediate control; they usually occur through the actions of others. However, … Read more

Times and Seasons, Life and Death

Four Seasons

I’m processing right now and taking a moment to share some thoughts. I’ve been working on chapters of the book(s), specifically looking at the parenting side of life as well as ethnicity and colour. I’ve written about my lack of relationship with both my dad and ex-step dad and I’ve also mentioned the relationship I’ve … Read more

The failure of the ‘type’

Human beings can be both fascinating and frustrating in equal measure, most are able to exercise our rights of ‘choice’, sometimes to our own detriment. On one hand, we have an ability to learn from mistakes, however, on the other, some repeatedly make intentional bad choices. People who are emotionally and mentally balanced, would consider … Read more

You know you’re ready

So you’re single and secure, you don’t have any baggage, you refuse to settle, you utilise your time constructively, you’re holistically developing yourself, you’ve acknowledged that you are in the 2nd state of being single, you have an understanding of what constitutes as real riches and you have the correct perspective of love and colour, … Read more

October 2019, BHM, Greta, XR, POTUS and countdown to Brexit?

October was an interesting month. Mainstream media was lapping up the polarising comments and (obviously parental assisted) mission of Greta Thunberg. There was the both annoying and disruptive, ‘coming out’ of those (with more money and time on their hands, than sense) XR Cult members, a.k.a. Extinction Rebellion. The continual 2-Party US political war, continues, … Read more

I couldn’t

Taking a short break from the books, if you enjoyed ‘I decided’ I hope you enjoy this… I couldn’t, being born and raised in England, hate White people. I couldn’t, having a Black mother and wife, hate Black women. I couldn’t, loving my mother, wife and 3 daughters, be a misogynist. I couldn’t, share and … Read more

Love and colour

Occasionally you read an article or quote, or hear someone on TV say that they don’t see colour. I think it’s one of the most ridiculous things that anyone can say, in an attempt to seem inclusive and ‘non offensive’. It’s a fact of life, human beings, whether male or female, come in various shapes … Read more

All Rise

CBS has a new show called ‘All Rise’, the description on their website reads as follows… “All Rise is a courthouse drama that follows the chaotic, hopeful, and sometimes absurd lives of its judges, prosecutors, and public defenders, as they work with bailiffs, clerks, and cops to get justice for the people of Los Angeles … Read more

Britain, Brexit and Politics in general

Unless you’ve been on walk-about in the outback or went off-grid in some remote Southern hemisphere rain forest for the last couple of years, you would be well aware of the Brexit “situation” Britain finds itself in. As human beings, our relationship with politics is a funny one. * Some see it as the so-called … Read more

Team #McCoco and @g.e.m.s.life

Tennis and Football(Soccer), have always been sports I’ve enjoyed, both playing and watching. My footballing days are well and truly over but I still love to get out and play tennis when I can. I’ve been very impressed by the young American tennis duo at the 2019 US Open, Catherine McNally and Coco Gauff. They … Read more
