GET REAL ABOUT GENDER. WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW


Here I’m explaining the simple facts about transgender people, people who are born a physical gender that they cannot identify with because of a changed biological process in the womb. It’s called Gender Dysphoria. Chances are you were born male or female. There’s a good chance that you’re happy about that and how your gender fits with your natural instincts, how you think,…

TAKEN


  This is a story, an imagination of beyond the element of death and what might, or might not, be. The sun was burning my face. I was ankle deep in the tepid waters of foreign land. I vaguely remember toeing soft sand, a pleasant sensation for feet young and old. The taste of plain chocolate was on my tongue and then, nothing….

CAN I TAKE THE OLD GEEZER DOWN THE PUB?


The things I’d say to God over a pie and a pint. You know, I’m not in the habit of inviting strange men down the pub for a drink. Even though inviting this one is just a fantasy of mine, given the bone I am dying to pick with this bloke, it’s a case of needs must. I doubt that a lifetime of…

LOVE. MUCH MORE THAN IT’S MADE OUT TO BE

YOUR LIFE IS YOURS


  I’m always saying it, that life is a gift we should embrace and a hardship we must endure. Life they say is for living and it sure is, when life and people allow it. Those of us lucky enough to be born into a free and democratic society might get a chance to live it, but living it to the full, finding…

DO YOU SEE THE WORLD THROUGH MYTH AND BELIEF?


This article is 1830 words long, about all the myths imposed upon society and the evil that creates hate over humanity, leading to negative human behaviour towards others born outside the expectations of sexually straight.   I guess we are all subject to myths and how we tend to believe in them, because humans generally are not yet capable of comprehending the complexities of life and the…

HEART AND SOUL VERSES ABSOLUTE BELIEF


This short article of 674 words explains where I stand regarding God and the beliefs of others. It’s main intention is to balance the possible perception that my previous blog (WHY I NEVER GOT CLOSE TO THE GOD BLOKE) was an indication I hated religion or those that believed in it. I hope what follows does that. It is important to me that…

LOST IN LONDON


A sad story of 1295 words about optimism, hope, enjoyment, fear, and ultimate loss.   It was last minute. We weren’t going. We never go, because we are never wanted. Being black, we’re not considered cool anymore, if indeed we ever were. All the others go, sometimes in turn, sometimes random, but they all get their chance to see the world. But for…

THE LEAF

MY FRIEND ROBIN


  Just a short story, 495 words of what happened out walking the coast path.   As friends go, Robin was always a bit of an odd ball. Our very first meeting was creepy. Out walking on cold afternoon along the coast path, I was deep in thought when all of a sudden this stranger just appeared, making me jump by his instant…

IS YOUR HEART AND MIND IN THE WRONG BOX?


This article is to get you thinking. It is 1086 words long, teasing the idea that we are all boxed up exactly as authorities and others want us, ourselves oblivious to it, or the box we’ve neatly built around ourselves. Unless we’re on the streets, we all live in a box, be it a house, up market apartment, flat, bedsit or someone’s couch….

WHY I NEVER GOT CLOSE TO THE GOD BLOKE


This is a story 1600 words long, about growing up struggling with my sexual instincts and the conflict those had with the expectations of religion. It’s about me, but maybe others can relate to their own growing up.. I asked as a child, the day I started Sunday school. I asked who is God, because my mum went on and on about him…
