New work: Chewing the cud

Hi everyone,

I popped over to Bushy Park early this morning to visit the deer and this was the result. I love the Royal Parks, I’m very fortunate to have several within easy travelling distance of where I live. If you are sensible about avoiding the rutting seasone when the stags can get aggressive and approach slowly then you can get very close to them. I grew up near Richmond Park and it was somewhere that we used to go to all the time for walks and picnics.


Best wishes

The power of a picture and the voice of the people.

Hi folks,

I’m sure that many of you have already seen this. I stumbled across the picture and the author’s text from a shared tweet on Twitter. This sends out a very powerful and hugely important message that millions of ordinary folk the world over will stand up and be counted and not tolerate secterian and racist policies. Every now and then you see a picture that is so much more powerful than words and this is one such picture.

I quote the author of the Facbeook post :

“A Taoist (me) gives up his seat so a Hasidic couple could sit together. They scoot over so a Muslim mother could sit and nurse her baby, on Easter Sunday.

This is my America: people letting people be people.”

If you haven’t already and you wish to please share the Facebook post. The author says “This is my America: people letting people be people.” the world needs more of this.

Best regards
