Under a Bridge – 2 January 2020 2020 is well underway, nearing the end of January. It's been a great start to the year. I would say, looking back in time, at 2019 last year, last year was an interesting year, a year that became a slow-motion crisis, or a crisis that ran its course in slow motion, culminating in a...

Historically, some major conflicts in the world have been wrapped up in scapegoating –pointing the finger at this or that group of people. We all know the story about Hitler’s Nazism and its identification of Jewish people as the problem afflicting the world. Get rid of the Jews and everything would be so much better....

These are challenging times. Many of us, if not almost all of us, have been thrown out of the routines we have been used to.

Combatting COVID-19 – My local supermarket’s contribution

The toilet paper drama has become a distant memory. Earlier today my (soon to be) 15-year-old son said he had been watching YouTube videos, of people around the world fighting in shops over – toilet paper.

On the edge of a fountain in Munich

It's March 19, 2020. I'm sitting on the edge of a fountain in Munich. Behind me there's a statue called The Angel of Freedom. It's quite quiet on the streets. A few cars, though, whizzing around and a few bikes, mine included, which is stationary at the moment because I'm sitting at the edge of... Continue Reading →
