philosphical realities (or the ramblings of a disheveled mind)    
I was going to take my own advice and step away from the net and social media but I had an exchange with a stranger that I thought I might share. I was up at the local post office sending out more copies of X-aspirations, as I do - on a daily basis. After the drop, I go to Coles...

There is a battle going on. Been going on for quite some time. A war that no side seemed to be winning... but it goes on and on. For quite some years I have been a mute witness. I didn't want to interfere, partly because of a degree of ignorance as to the right or wrong of it and...

A Christmas Story

Onomatopoeia, long, long ago, in a sleepy little town nestling in a valley surround by worn down slumbering mountains, lived a Stephen. Not just an ordinary Stephen. This one was a 6 feet and 3 inches tall, lean - leaning towards gangly - long-haired and happy go lucky hippy type of Stephen. Life was simple. Stephen was content to while...

The Athenaeum Library is the oldest library in Victoria and has the aura of comfort and reassurance that only comes with age. It sits there indifferent to the city life steaming beneath its windows. Parliament had once made a home there and luminaries such as Mark Twain had been known to soak up the vibes of the stately rooms.   There's an...

What a week... Tuesday saw the annual arrival of two ducks that make a stopover in our pool for a day or two. This has been going on for many years now and to honest, I am not sure if these ducks are the original pair of offspring of. They do look rather plumper than in previous years and...

The Nutcracker

I once had my fortune told. I cannot remember all that was said, though I do recall thinking that he nailed my past and present like he'd been there with me throughout my whole life. The future I was not so convinced about, but now some 20 years later, he seemed to nail that as well.                                                             One that he...

Don’t Abuse The Muse

"Music is supposed to make you feel good, right? " This comment came up in a social media feed. I almost didn't give a second thought, but something tugged at my mental sleeve. Music is such a huge part of the day to day routine that it is too easy to take it for granted. The implication is that anything...

I was waiting to go to my monthly check-up with my GP and with what has become routine as much as a habit, taking breakfast in a quiet little corner cafe near the practice. It's nothing flash, but the two women that run know how to make 'basic' good and satisfying. Very good, actually. On these occasions, I take...

bread and water (the working musician’s staple diet)
Back in the 90’s while between studio sessions with Bigger Than Jesus (the Killer Vision album), I felt the need for a change in intensity, some to soothe my nerves after all the screaming and howling so I snuck off to Hot House and made a solo record. It only took 2 days but what a wonderful two days. Like...

I was doing some chores around the house and ran a documentary in the background to help pass the time. Into The Mouth Of Madness - Who Writes reality?  It was deep, to say the least. The 'who writes' pitch used the movie (starring Sam Neil) as the vehicle to actualise the notion and I soon found all other routine...
