On the dotted line

Taking a step back to where that time began too far and you’ll lose sight of the thing that you look for, sometimes it’s under your nose or it’s over and out there are no guarantees the kaleidoscope jigsaw that turns on in your mind where the grinding emotions conspire, to love, to dismiss, to…

One take

Lots of views on coronavirus vaccines and 5G and I’ve even heard it said that it’s one big conspiracy. My view is some people should ‘put a sock in it’, let other people get on with it, we’ve all got to live with it whatever it is. History will only tell us that it was…
