Circle Pit


I love moshing. Its really very cool. You need a group of people to do it. It can be dangerous. Its always painful, if its done right. I love the self organisation. The mutual respect between the participants. Seeing someone fall down. A group of people forming a wall to protect the people on the […]

Brockley, London


I love south east London.

Who are you?


Thirteen billion years old I am mostly stardust I’ve been a nebula And born into a star I formed a planet Lived there for four billion years My ancestors were single cells And worms, then reptiles. Some lived In the sea, others near the Feet of dinosaur I’m made of the air I breath The […]



I found some spiders in my Garden. Loads of them. I didn’t know what they where at first, I knocked a bush and a whole bunch of them started dropping out of the cluster dangling down on threads. Trying to hide maybe. There were two distinct clusters of them. Once we had all recovered from […]



Inspired by Danny Shine’s leaflet (see below), here is my version of his meditations. The idea is not to believe or disbelieve the statements, but instead just to take one and experience it for a minute or two. What if the only time is now, and the future and the past are just my expectations […]

This picture has been in the news today. When a star like our sun runs out of fuel it can shed its outer layers and become a type of star called a white dwarf. In the future, maybe around 5 billion years from now, it is possible that a similar thing will happen to our […]

I am the universe


I am the universe. The universe is not something which is outside of me. Not only is there no difference between me and my surroundings, they are not two separable things. It is not even straightforward to exactly define what is and isn’t me at any particular point in time. My survival is entirely dependent […]

Small Dogs


I’m walking back to my house from the shop, carrying some food. Something grabs the bottom of my left trouser leg. I turn quickly, but there is nothing there, move my bags out of the way. A tiny dog, maybe a 20th of my size at the most, attacking my ankle. Grrr, get out of […]

Hollow Religion


It is easy to ignore religion. When you live in Britain, religion is often a quaint and backward set of clearly incorrect beliefs; or a scary thing belonging to other people. I’m not a student of theology, but some things are clear to me. I’m only really considering the idea of revealed religion. Religion which […]
