This Is Your Song

Elton and Bernie already wrote ‘Your Song’ And I could just sing that for you But I don’t think words meant for someone else Is the ‘best I can do’ So many love songs have come along You’d think that it’s all been said But the words have never been sung out loud That are living inside my head You […]

Corona: It’s Love the Elites Are Really Afraid Of

‘The world stands at a parting of the ways’ begins one of my favourite quotes. And we are at such a crossroads now.

A Tribute To Ben Griffin of Veterans For Peace UK

Ben Griffin – a few words:This is the first Remembrance Sunday in four years that I won’t be at the Cenotaph with Veterans For Peace UK, because I’m in Beirut. But I am thinking about them today, all the extraordinary men I’ve met with their stories of extraordinary courage – not the ‘courage’ of the war propagandists who are in […]
