  1. The Machiavellian Psyche

    "...A lull came. A subtle hush in the dynamic. The undulations of my ire grew to the precipice of rage – which I knew he had the power to snap into fury. He seemed calmer than ever. The why’s and where’s of his clam were imponderable – and frightening. But why would I be frightened? What was ‘fright’ to me at this juncture? As fright is a foreign notion to me now, it was not then…Indeed, it, and my own choler seemed much the same thing, in no way exclusive of one another. And there 'the People' ...

  2. Happy Birthday Dad!

    Were you still alive, Dad, you would've turned 74 today. Although nine years has passed since you went away, I still miss you - some years seem to be more painful than others for reasons I can't explain.

    I wish to write this tribute for you today, Dad. I remember, first of all, how you were born in Malta (from what you told me of course), the second oldest son and third oldest child. You were born just before WW2, and you endured the blitzes which would've felt never-endingly horrendous! ...

    It's been nearly a week since I quit.Certain changes, welcome to some and unwelcome to others, have been made as a result. There are certain spiritual matters I need to straighten out that involve my family and my own peace of mind.I find I remember things more easily and my studying's much easier to do.I might take a quick break from the site but return just as quickly.Funny how when the fog lifts, not only is the landscape beautiful, but it's also perfectly clear.

On the first day we were busy following a "path" it was on the ordinance survey map but lead us nicely to a fast river and a deer fence. After climbing down a small cliff to get round the fence, passing the bags down in turns, we found that the path didn't exist in the ...

  5. Camping saga 3

    I've only just got on-line again and I'll be off in two days!

    Finally the snow has melted (ish) and my friend and I are about to go hiking, there's only two of us going and we can only go for three days as she is working after that, and her boyfriend is jealous enough as it is! (No she's not like that) We're planning on heading up past Tomintoul and then doing a loop up the River Avon across the hills and back down another river.


    So I hope to have some photos ...
