Young people are currently being groomed in "every town" in Britain

Young people are currently being groomed in "every town" in Britain, according to a charity.
Parents Against Child Sexual Exploitation (Pace) says "thousands" of children are affected and police forces lack skills to deal with such abuse. 
A report into child sexual exploitation in Rotherham found at least 1,400 children were abused over two decades.
The National Child Protection Working Group says police are dealing with an "unprecedented" number of abuse cases.
Child sexual exploitation can take place when a young person is manipulated by an adult into sex following a process of "grooming", involving being given gifts and being distanced from their parents.
Children may then be sexually assaulted by networks of adults over a number of years and can be shamed or intimidated out of reporting the crime.


2015 - YES I will ...............

I am going to get my life together in 2015.
I slipped up in 2014.
and forever
unfinished work
me ...................

It was all new to me.
I fumbled.
I stumbled.
I wept.
I was inflicted with change.
I was thrown hard balls.
I am alive - 

2014 was full of change.
2014 wasn't really tough,
I am just being dramatic.
But it was full of change
I feel good about the year.

A year ago today
I never thought 
I would be here
this place
doing things
I love to do
becoming ..............

I never thought I would be 
this age
it just came
with experience.

I never thought I would be 
a totally freelance facilitator/educator.
I never thought I would be
a Grandad and loving it.

And there has been
many more changes.
Largely through challenges.
My internal Pip
become more fragile,
become more sensitive,
become more yearning,
become more seeking,
become more reflective,
become more ............

I wonder what your thoughts are
on this?
I guess you constantly suss me out.
Strive to understand me
me too.

AND I switch to you
do you suss yourself out?
Do you strive to understand

In 2015 I will carry on gigging.
Some in the diary already
a few months ahead
I do =

Hire me
Tell others I am for hire
I need to do this
my life mission
and I need to pay my mortgage
for the next ten years.

I will carry on writing
I will carry on becoming emotionally literate
I will carry on becoming more spiritually literate
I will carry on meeting humans
I will carry on supporting the wounded
I will carry on learning, reading, interacting,

One day some of these will fade away.
I need to come to terms with this.
That, and other decisions,
will be my focus one day
when I get old.

I will read daily.
I will pray with every breath.
I will eat healthier.
I will love.
I will love the unlovely.
I will love myself
I will learn.
I will journey
I will remind you 'you are beautiful'
I will become well travelled
in relationships
in values
in love.

Welcome into my life,
dear 2015.
I will receive your hard balls,
welcome your 

            Dance like no-one is watching
            Sing like no-one is listening
            Love like you have never been hurt.


May your 2015 trails be crooked

May your trails be 
... leading to the most amazing view.
May your mountains 
rise into 
above the clouds.

Earth Apples: The Poetry of Edward Abbey (1994)

Let the Year Begin

Here's to the babies in a brand new world
Here's to the beauty of the stars
Here's to the travellers on the open road
Here's to the dreamers in the bars

Here's to the teachers in the crowded rooms
Here's to the workers in the fields
Here's to the preachers of the sacred words
Here's to the drivers at the wheel

Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Now let the day begin
Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Now let the day begin, let the day begin

Here's to the winners of the human race
Here's to the losers in the game
Here's to the soldiers of the bitter war
Here's to the wall that bears their names

Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Now let the day begin
Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Let the day begin, let the day begin, let the day start

Here's to the doctors and their healing work
Here's to the loved ones in their care
Here's to the strangers on the streets tonight
Here's to the lonely everywhere

Here's to the wisdom from the mouths of babes
Here's to the lions in the cage
Here's to the struggles of the silent war
Here's to the closing of the age.

Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Now let the day begin
Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Let the day begin

Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Let the day begin
Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Now let the day begin, let the day begin, let the day start

Blessed are the lost and confused, for admitting what the rest of us deny

Blessed are the paranoid for they will realise they were right all along

Blessed are the addicts, for they will be able to release themselves

Blessed are the welcoming and friendly, for they will be welcomed by many friends

Blessed are those who are cursed by bad luck, for their number will finally come up

Blessed are they who find they cannot believe, for they will find honesty is a fruit of the Spirit

Blessed are those willing to go the second mile, for they will get a lift

Blessed are those who see Love in the eyes of the forgotten, for they will find Love gazing back at them

Blessed are those who use foreign names for God, for one day we will all speak in tongues.

Blessed are those who have lost their life, for they will find  Life comes looking for them

Blessed are those with a roof over their heads,

food on the table, work that rewards and friends to rely on,

for there isn’t much more anyone can ask for

Blessed are those who find the poetry in religion,

for they will find a divine rhyme in the ordinary and everyday

Blessed are all of us who are found wanting, for we will all be found wanted.

A Question for you?

Question for you::
Think of the best conversation you have had all year.

Why can't you do that with others, 
especially those not easy to relate to?


Some People spend their Christmas with their Family.

Some People spend their Christmas with their Family.
Some People spend their Christmas in hawaii or Spain.
And some People spend their Christmas in 
the street, trying to keep warm, trying
to get some Food. 
Trying to survive the Cold night.
Praying for their life.
Praying for a miracle.
Praying for a better future.
Praying for their life to end.
Before it get`t worse, while its still
good thougths in their mind.
So they don`t breake down,
like a glass falling down on the ground.

My best friends birthday.

Hope you are feeling good.
Not too race around tense.

Hope you feel uncomfortable?
About some things
within without
self family and world

I live with the conflict between
the tsunami of glitter
and wanting to celebrate
my best friends birthday.

Hope you are doing some loving
some loving of yourself ?
You are beautiful.

My Christmas Card for you

In the Face of Christmas

In the Face of Christmas

Let us ask God for a good Christmas:
that no powerful nation
should tax the poor
or uproot them;
that no unmarried mother
should be put away in disgrace;
that no door will be shut
on those that need to find it open;
that shepherds and sheep and all of nature
need not be afraid;
that walls, barbed wire and angry soldiers
may not be found in Bethlehem;
that we will stop building walls
to keep people in and people out
that wise men and wise women 
might appear in Wales, in Scotland, in Ireland, in England,
in Iraq, in Afghanistan, in Syria and in our street;
that children can be safe in schools around the world
that guns and weapons of war may not be seen as toys
that children may be preserved
from those who would abuse them;
that this Christmas,
you may become a manger
and your home a stable
and the rumour become a reality
that The Divine has come among us.
And this we pray in Jesus’ name

#Pope #Dictator or what?

I respect what the Pope is doing in the Vatican, 
change so needed - 
but he can only do what he is doing/saying because 
he is a Dictator. 
Nobody can suggest another way to him.

The ABC = Archbishop of Canterbury
he couldn't get away with that
and rightly so
He has to/needs to work with people
frustrating for many yearning for change
BUT - who wants a Dictator.
The best of them can't always be right!!

In the real world a Leader/CEO has to work with people for change.
As we work with other for change
we also help in everyones development.

Go alone we go fast.
Go together - we go LONG.


#Christmas programme

We are going to Sheilas Christmas Day - and 
ours on Boxing Day
with both the Sheilas & their men + Conniepops.
It will be great.

I used to send out a mini eNews, back in the day,
to about 3000+ humans who registered on my eNews list,
also to about 1500 others who are in my address book 
but now
I just click here and encourage people to get a daily email automatically - see above.
I don't know who does this
or how many - 

but thank you if you do ....

I write for my soul
to get stuff out
but also for you
offering my reflections into your life
and I would love to/welcome yours ..........

Before & Come January 
I will continue the Road Less Travelled adventures 
and  wonder what adventures they will be.
We can plan certain things
but many happening come at us unplanned eh?

I am aware of certain humans in my life 
who are facing Christmas without many positives.
I feel deeply for them/you - 
if you have some tough days ahead.

You are beautiful
Christmas is here to prove it
that you are beautiful.
not the human made one
the first one
the real one.

Because I work with humans who say::
"I hate Christmas"
I feel things about Christmas 
which are beyond self and family.
To manage my step back from frontline work - 
and take a break
(for years Joan and me have worked to give many living in hostels the best possible Christmas)
...... to manage this
I have the a saying which I have clicked here before::
"I am responsible to people - not for people"

...... so I have clicked a few words from my stumbling fumbling soul.
Soul undressing ......
Seeing behind 
the behaviour, 
the mask, 
the army uniform
the Police uniform
the colour of skin
I see a beautiful human 
who Christmas was aimed at
as with you
as with me
and especially …………………… (fill in yourself bit) 

“ We are sick as we are secret” 
John Berryman. Poet 

As the violence and the loudness, 
the oppression, 
the killing at home or abroad – 
I have decided to make my life an act of love. 

Let us join the vulnerable babe this Christmas. 
Maskless vulnerability. 

So love can get in. 
So love can get out.

Stay with me over the coming days ...
Listen to the beautiful music here .....
Read a few words as I reflect the journey 
to and through the new year .......

Love came at Christmas
Into straw poverty ..........


#Separation Wall


underground and overground 
everywhere and nowhere 
always and never 
sometimes and all times

People look east .............

“People, look east. The time is near.
Of the crowning of the year.
Make your house fair as you are able,
Trim the hearth and set the table.
People, look East and sing today:
Love the Guest is on the way.”

Words: Eleanor Farjeon


#MichaelFranti Video & plea "When we all see justice, we'll all see peace."

Musician and poet Michael Franti was working in a Miami studio when he got the news that a grand jury had decided not to indict police officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of unarmed civilian Eric Garner. "I was really shocked," he tells Rolling Stone. "Having seen the tape of the Garner killing, I could not see how no indictment was possible. When I saw Garner's family members speaking on TV, it was really emotional for me."

In response, Franti wrote "Same as It Ever Was (Start Today)," which he recorded with producer Di Genius. The lyrics to the song call for change and a better understanding between police and communities. "When we used to have a problem we used to call the police," he sings somberly at one point of the song, "but who we gonna call when the police make a problem?" Amid jazzy piano and a down-tempo beat, Franti asks everyone to start reassessing their attitudes toward one another today. "I really wanted to write something that would touch hearts, make people think and be moved to work for change in our country," Franti says.
Franti says the song is not an indictment against police officers or police departments. But he thinks officers should be held accountable when they make wrong decisions and innocent lives are lost. "When the decisions to indict police officers are repeatedly denied behind the closed doors of a grand jury and the people are not brought to justice in the public eye of a court room, it breaks all of our trust and it reinforces the idea that there is little or no accountability when it comes to the police killing of African-American men and other people of color," he says. "That their lives are worth less than the lives of others.... It is not due process, it is not just, and it is not acceptable. If that's what the law says, then I believe it's a law that should be changed."
We spoke with Franti who expounded on some of the themes of "Same as It Ever Was (Start Today)."
In your opinion, what could ease tensions between police and civilians? 
What we see today is the result of generations of mistrust in our communities: Rodney King, the Watts Riots, the Black Panther movement, the Civil Rights movement all played out with police and people in the streets. It's no secret that the police and black people haven't exactly sat down and sipped tea together. We see incidents like killings taking place and it brings everything to the surface, but honestly it's the way police deal with individuals one-on-one on a daily basis over the years that makes or breaks the trust in the community. So in two words: "respect" and "accountability."

The police will never develop the respect of the community if unarmed men of color continue to be killed and the cases never go to trial in a public courtroom. And does it really take a dozen bullets, or a chokehold to arrest an unarmed man? They seem to manage in other countries all the time. Take England for example, where police do not carry firearms. Despite the Eric Garner decision, police wearing cameras has proven to reduce the rate of complaints against them by as much as 80 percent in communities that use cameras. Equally important is for police to know who they are protecting and serving, perhaps live in the communities or be from them.
How can people rebuild trust with police? 
The first thing is people need to have an opportunity to vent their emotions in a safe way. People are hurt, and they need to be able to safely take to the streets. Cases need to be tried in courtrooms and not behind doors. My goal with this song and video is to promote conversation between friends, family members, in schools, the workplace, and on social media. Today, we have an unprecedented opportunity for dialog to take place, and hopefully action that leads to substantive change. Change in the way our communities are policed, change in the way the judicial system works and perhaps change in the way our communities view and relate to the police and judicial system. It's on everyone's minds right now; it should not be swept under the rug.

How hard of a decision was it to include footage of Eric Garner's death in the clip? 
It was a very mindful decision, but not a difficult one. It's a horrible thing to see. But in order to discuss it, we have to be open to what we are actually talking about. I know some people will be offended by it, and others might be offended by the picture of the black boy hugging a white police officer. Some will not like that I show a sign that reads "black lives matter," as though I'm saying "other lives don't." Some will not like that I show signs that read "All lives matter," as if I'm diluting the message that black men are being killed by the police. Others may disagree that I say in the song that all of us have a role to play in making these changes possible. I wrote every word and selected each image to trigger dialog. I'm okay with that, because that's where substantive change can occur and healing can begin.

What else would you like to say? 
My birth mother is Irish, French and German, and my birth father is African-American. I was raised by Finnish-American parents, who had three kids of their own before adopting me and another African-American son. For as long as I can remember, race and the questions surrounding it have been a part of my life. My mother taught me at a very early age that I should respect law enforcement, but also to be aware that being one of the only people of color in my community that their might be some not so good officers I should be looking out for.

Today, I live in Hunter's Point, San Francisco, a community that is 90 percent African-American. I have had bullets rip through two walls of my home from shots in the community, and I have a neighbor whose unarmed son was killed by police. Last summer, I was stopped, handcuffed and accused of a double homicide while on the way to the movies with my teenage son. I was eventually released. Being wrongly accused and handcuffed in front of my son left me enraged, but I must admit, had my son been the one who got shot in the double homicide that day, I might have been demanding the cops were at least out looking for the perpetrator.

It's easy for people to generalize and say all cops are bad or all black youth are trouble. It makes headlines, and it makes situations like the Mike Brown tragedy easier for people on both sides to rationalize. We all have a stake and a responsibility in bringing about these changes. We might not ever live in a society that is just, unbiased, kind and peaceful all the time, but I know for sure we can all do way better than what we are doing right now. So let's not give up trying. That is the challenge today and we've all been called to play a role in, let's start today.
