FILE UNDER: Mind Mapping & Creativity
This is EXCITING! I know, I often start like that, but hey, would YOU read a blog post that started “This is boring”? Think about it.
So what is exciting? Well, my new Mind Mapping & Creativity Weekends in Paris, that’s what 😀
These sessions are in French, so it’s a great opportunity to practise if you already ‘get by’, and meet some lovely locals too.

“You have just begun reading the sentence you have just finished reading.”
What the FREAK??
Hey, don’t blame me, it’s English’s fault. Yep, welcome to the wild and wacky world of this crazy language we love to loathe (but love anyway)!
Here in a super-duper bumper-bonus package are Parts 2 & 3 to bugger up your brainbuds and drive your dendroids to distraction…

FILE UNDER: Paris & I ~ Street Photography
Next in line for resurrection: Paris & I, my legendary… Paris / iPhone street photography and philosophy blog!
OK, ‘philosophy’ is probably a gross misuse of the term; random thoughts and stuff would probably be a better description, inspired nevertheless by some hopefully rather interesting genuine Paris street photography…
I’ve been getting sad about its complete demise in equal measure that my enthusiasm for Paris street photography and related creative endeavours reawakens. It never died actually, but life circumstances meant it had to be put on hold for a bit. That bit is now OVER and I’m back with a vengeance!
Here are three new posts, which are actually old photos, but I’ll be catching up for a while I guess:
Balloon New World
Defense de Fumer Pt.3 / Defense de Fumer Pt.2
FILE UNDER: Mind Map Mad ~ Coaching
When I get into something, I like to learn as much as I can about it, as quickly as I can, and then start playing around and adding my own special sauce to make it mine.
That’s what I did here with the well-know coaching tool, the so-called Wheel of Life. I mind mapped it!
In fact, although it had nothing to do with mind mapping to start out with, it lent itself admirably to the exercise and I love the result.
I’ve also written an in-depth article to go with it, so I hope you’ll read that too and get into this cool tool and… sort your life out!
FILE UNDER: Mystic Rhythms ~ Poetry
August 2016 is shaping up nicely.
Just a stanza short of my 51st, still surfing pre-second semicentennial tension, and feeling good…
My lack of poetic output over the last few years has been troubling me, and the last time I updated my Mystic Rhythms blog was more than a couple of years back.
Enough was enough. So I churned out three new ones between thumb-twiddling to get the ball rolling again. What’s more, you can now listen to them, err, me, reciting before, during, after or even instead of reading. Oh blissful day. 🔮

FILE UNDER: Hotch Potch English ~ The SNAIL
Been hankering to get back to one of my first true loves: laughing out loud with that crazy damn language they call English.
So what a great opportunity to introduce anyone who’s reading to a major part of my life’s work: reveling in the intricacies and improbabilities of what you can, can’t and just shouldn’t (who says?) do with words.
On a personal basis I twist and turn words to my own dastardly purposes on a regular basis, but sometimes, I have to admit, others have done it so much better, and The SNAIL is where I share my discoveries with the world…
FILE UNDER: Rainbow English School ~ Scribblisms
My latest Scribblism is delightfully simple yet timelessly profound.
Even in writing those words above, I ask myself, can there still be anyone who doesn’t agree that making mistakes is OK; a perfectly natural and, indeed, essential part of the learning process.
But then I remember back to my school days when corporal punishment – i.e. teachers HITTING children – was still occasionally performed – yes, I’m that old – and I realise that a dim view of ‘getting things wrong’ is not so far away, even in relatively advanced countries.
