It is one of my favourite Eagles songs… so … my 15Continue reading “15 minutes to write – Take It Easy”

From the idea of James Taylor’s wonderful song about ‘The Frozen Man’. Captain William James McPhee looked out over the bow of the ship.The waves looming higher each time as they crashed onto the decks and through the rigging, sounding like a hundred cannons. The cold cold sea waiting for him and his men, thereContinue reading “Frozen Man – 15 minutes”
