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

No 26-Wedding Anniversary

Phil and Lois Gayle

I hope you are doing well. We are living in, what I have been calling, interesting times. At the start of 2020 we heard about a virus which was sweeping through parts of Asia but didn’t think it would become as aggressive and as feared by a large percentage, as it has. Bible believing readers … 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

An Editor, A Literary Agent, The Publisher and Dot Com only

Blog platforms like WordPress and Blogger and social media platforms, bring writers together along with the all important ‘readers’. Writing can be a very lonely art, especially if those you know (in real life) are not avid readers, or your subject matter, is of no interest to them. I’m so grateful for the people I … Read more

Being Single

With the exception of sharing our mothers wombs with our siblings, as part of twins, triplets or more, our ‘Genesis points’ usually begins in singularity. We obviously live most of our child-hood as a single person and (as mentioned in my ‘Single and Secure’ post) we learn about relationships from those around us. Worldly contradictions … Read more

Don’t Settle

We go through life with differing attitudes, our expectations can be positive, negative or a combination of both, depending on our past experiences, emotional/spiritual state and how we choose to deal with others. The saying “misery loves company”, is true, therefore it’s possible for miserable people to attract others and have a relationship. However, in … 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

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

Homosexuality…no fear, no phobia, no hate…my view

If you were to believe certain sections of the media, you would believe there was some sort of ‘new liberated consciousness’ on the rise. As per my Tweet, I’m a firm believer that we are undergoing a major re-cycle of human behaviour and attitudes. That being said, there are many who incorrectly judge those of … Read more

R2R-Church fellowship

The comments on my other Blog were turned off, with the intention to use the Blog to reply ‘in-depth’ to certain Tweets. My Response I understand completely, concerning church and business…I agree, yet slightly disagree, with part of the tweets. In previous Blog posts, I’ve covered the definition of Church, i.e. “The called out”…those who … Read more

Amalgamation…It was inevitable

What’s that saying?… “If you want a different result (outcome), you have to do things different”…That’s what I’m having to do in order to progress and get things done. For a number of reasons, I’ve been trying to separate my writing over various platforms but have failed to gain and maintain the necessary and desired … Read more
