I would love to have an hour or so with you just chilling and chatting.

"I will be naked more I will memorise clouds ...............


I would love to have an hour or so with you 
just chilling and chatting. 

I have read online today that my
favourite 'HOME'  =London cafe 
has shut until further notice!
most people and myself are not now available to
go there and rest a-while!
The world is in crisis.

Let's meet up when all this VIRUS WAR is over?

I have feelings, passions and opinions. 
I love feelings
Not so much OPINIONS !

I don't have an opinion about everything 
so your view can influence mine. 
I am a broken offering to life. 

My life I carry around experiences which have damaged. 
At the same time they, 
the same hurts, 
are the things which have made me grow and develop::
It is only when we talk together 
that we find out about what is going on inside
ME too.

We have all sorts of thoughts sloshing around 
in our heads like a cement mixer. 
When we pour out the concrete it sets 
and becomes more real. 
So, when we talk things, 
we make things more concrete and we learn. 
Life is 'life long learning’. 

Writing / journaling can do this too

I have notes from my first full time Youth Work
back in the middle 60's.
Yes - I am that old!

I found that I had to reflect about humans +
environment in the Youth Club - everything.
Before I retired to bed
I needed to reflect - come down - learn.

I was born in St Helens Lancashire, 
the home of glass and Rugby League. 
At school and in the park we never played football, 
even as little kids, 
we played rugby league. 
My Dad was a miner in the coal mines*.
This was the Second WORLD WAR. 
He didn't go to war because of that and 
he also was an 'air raid warden’ 
which meant helping people to take precautions 
when the Hitler bombs dropped.

I keep thinking about this*.
It is colliding with the current::
Covid_19 takeover of our natural world.
It is like a war going on where I live
and where you are too.

Some good will come it
I am sure ............ eventually ! 

I was the youngest of four boys and was a mistake. 
I fought my way through childhood 
and that was just with my brothers! 
Also my education was poor. 
I was terrible at school too.
I had no interest in school only messing about. 

But at 15 some thing happened 
(I will tell you if you ask). 
I then started work in a factory at 15 and trained to be a fitter/engineer 
building winches for ships followed by 
working in another factory making parts for engines and trains to be exported all around the world - 
and playing rugby all the time. 
Then at 21 some thing happened to 
change my whole purpose and direction?........

So that is a wee bit of me. 
What I want do is to find out about your journey, 
and I bet your life would make a great book?
l bet you could write a book about it! 
A thriller?

I did, - the original is called 
'Gutter Feelings’ and you can still get it 
from . 
I have added a few more chapters because of you, 
and would love to add more chapters.

Why don't you write to me?
I will hold confidentiality - promise.


"I will be naked more
I will memorise clouds
There is no law that says you shall not study a sunset
Beyond heavy woolens, 
beyond the nightly News, 
beyond the reach of what hurts you, 
beyond politics 
(national, local, sexual),
beyond beyond"
