Into the Void

It is coming to a time of year (Christmas) that I have become more and more conflicted about as the years have gone by. I don’t think it is a time of year that I have ever really enjoyed. I find it challenging for so many reasons and after what we have all been throughContinue reading “Into the Void”

How Soon Is Now

A fairly depressing song – from a fairly depressing band – and certainly a lead singer with somewhat questionable attitudes and beliefs. Relax. I am not going down that path. It is the thoughtfulness that this song brings out that I relate to. There is also some empathy with the background to the song andContinue reading “How Soon Is Now”

White Rabbit

One of the reasons I listen to music is to escape. It is something that takes me away from the now and transports me to different moments in time.

Release The Pressure

It has been a few weeks since my last post – but actually this is my 18th so far and for that I am pretty proud of myself. I had no expectations when I set out to do this – I didn’t know if it would be a one off – or a regular thingContinue reading “Release The Pressure”


The latest song to hit my headphones time and time and time again lately is one called Consideration by Reef. For me it resonates in so many ways. For a start, in my opinion, it is beautifully sung, is very different from most of Reef’s efforts – but most of all it is the lyricsContinue reading “Consideration”
