This is Gorm, created in god’s imagination. The human species is Gorm ~ unfeeling, desensitised, divisive, deceitful, afraid and false.
“Hello, I’m God”.
“Well that’s interesting,” I said, humouring him. Not wanting to appear rude I asked, in the gentlest way possible, if he could prove it.
What with all the talk about Mars and the age of the water that may or may not be found on its surface, well . . . a red sketch painting was always on the cards. On such a small scale the cloud formations are difficult to form, every brush seems to be too big as […]
At a time when, for the majority of us, life has been made dysfunctional and disquieting, I am becoming increasingly fascinated by the power and majesty of the natural world. We can learn a lot from the sky, not just from its ever changing vastness and the fact that it’s the skin which wraps the Earth but also from its […]

One man’s thoughts on Easter: Since I was knee high to a grasshopper, I’ve been reminded, an untold number of times, of God’s omniscience ~ him with the big voice and handsome beard. I’ve been led to believe that everything the scary old fella’ has in store for us is pre-ordained. Apparently He’s had it […]
