The Plastic Problem

The biggest issue with plastic is that the problem is so vast, where do you start? There are so many tendrils worked into so many people’s lives that it is daunting to even start thinking about how you might solve it. For me, the first thing to do is to properly see the big picture…

The Power of Keeping Secrets

Secrets are powerful things. Not just for the person who has been entrusted with the secret, but the person who gives the secret to someone else to keep safe. Something strange happened this morning. I was told a secret. The secret isn’t really that important, but it is to the lady who told me. I…

What is the truth about men?

There’s always the talk of how guys don’t understand women. That women are always making and changing rules and whatever. I don’t get it. Don’t get me wrong – women are very confusing.

When I Met a Legend: Albert Lee

I shook Albert Lee’s hand. More to the point, he shook mine. He even held it for longer than I was comfortable. I looked into his eyes, told him I thought he was great, and that I thought the guys (his band) were great too. Then I did something I never do. I put my…

Be More Cookie Monster

I hear so many people agonising over what they should do vs. what they want to do. Don’t get me wrong, I understand that being an adult means that we have responsibilities. Sometimes we all have to do things we don’t want to do. But I’m wondering if we are taking things a little too…
