When All Is Calm

I can’t believe July was the last time I posted on my blog. Well in that time I’ve overcome one of my most challenging projects at work, and on the way to closure. I’ve also found time (and motivation) to get back on the bike, early morning weekends of cool air rushing through my beard. Today, I leave you with a calming image of a local country lane during one of my rides.

A road well travelled

Have a beautiful weekend. Stay safe. Stay healthy.

Murky Waters

…the state of the nation

I took this image while with the kids on a nature trail at a local country park. At that moment, I felt this resembled the lay of the land on the horizon. Hope I’m wrong!

Words & Pictures: Mask No More



He could not bear the separation anymore, if it was to be the last kiss, then so be it! Whipping off the mask, he advanced towards her lips.  All around watched in horror, surely his lungs would explode any moment now from the infected air.  Any moment his eyes would turn blood red, like an astronaut taking off his helmet in dark space. Now they both waited…..


Spotted this mask on the floor as we walked from our car to Greenwich Park. I am a firmly behind the idea of Personal Protective Equipment for front line/key workers. But what I have noticed is the fashion statement others have turned a mask into amongst the general public. If we all have to dawn masks in the future, I wonder how that will aid what already is a failing trend in verbal communication.

What’s your view on masks? Are they prevalent where you are?

Words & Pictures: Message in a Jar



When you find this, let it be known it was the humans who first discouraged human interaction. 

Photo taken in 2018 –  arriving in Eastbourne after hiking 16 miles across Seven Sisters from Seaford. 

What would your message in the jar say?

Words & Pictures: A Perfect Reflection?


“A perfect reflection”? he muttered to himself. The voice inside answered back, “for that you will have to pluck up the courage and look back at yourself”.

What would your reflection say to you?

What I love about cycling in and around London is finding something new each time – there is plenty still to discover.
