You’ll Never Walk Alone

June 22, 2015


I created this image from a photo of steps leading up from the crypt where the body of St Barnabas was found in 477 AD. The crypt is now a small mausoleum close to the St Barnabas Monastery and Icon Museum, not far from the ancient site of Salamis in North Cyprus. The history of […]

Mercury Retrograde

June 13, 2015


I wasn’t sure what to call this until I realised that all the chaos in communication we experienced in trying to look after our little dog, Ziggy, when he was ill was influenced by Mercury Retrograde, a feature of astrology, which wound up yesterday, Friday 12th. Mercury Retrograde happens when it looks, from the perspective […]

“He Lives His Life”

June 13, 2015


When we lived in Australia we watched a programme by Kevin McLeod, a guy who usually fronts a series about the challenges facing home builders.

Columns – Salamis Gymnasium

June 2, 2015


I’ve been absent for a few days as last week I tripped over an electrical wire beside our bed and had yet another close encounter of the marble kind with the floor. Went down with a hell of a bump, and took it on the chin as that’s where I landed first. So this past […]

Freedom to Fly

May 23, 2015


There is a simple message here – be true to yourself, trust yourself and you will fly with the best possible emotions – love, self-confidence, happiness, creativity.  Too often these days joy is squashed out of us by rules, regulations, nose to the grindstone work, interminable, stressful  and boring testing in schools and universities, when […]

Spring is Sprung

May 23, 2015


Spring has finally arrived here in North Cyprus after a long, cold, wet winter and a very dodgy start to spring – moving from sunny days back to wet, windy spells.  But now we’re around 28-32C (82-90F) pretty much every day, the sun is bright in the sky which is now a bright blue virtually […]
