15 minutes to write – A better Man

My 15 minute offering today was prompted by a song – Better Man by Little Big Town. I was listening to my Spotify play list and this one struck a chord. Not necessarily the words in the song but the essence of wishing we were better and having someone to listen to us. I haveContinue reading “15 minutes to write – A better Man”

15 minutes to write- goodbye old friends

My Dad ( on the right) passed away when I was quite young. This is one of my favourite photos of him when he was about 19, just before he went off to do his National Service in the RAF. I never knew the other two lads or the story behind the photo – soContinue reading “15 minutes to write- goodbye old friends”

15 minutes to write – Buenos Aires

Inspired by a lunch in a cafe in Buenos Aires on a rainy Sunday last week with our beautiful daughter Emily. ……… The door opened with a crash, almost falling off its weather worn hinges as the crowd poured in laughing and chattering, shaking off the rain soaked unberellas as they did so. The hubbubContinue reading “15 minutes to write – Buenos Aires”

Its a great song from my youth … so here isContinue reading “The Boxer – 15 minutes”

During business trips to Mumbai our hosts would love to take us to see the worlds largest outdoor laundry – The Dhobi Ghat. It is the most amazing sight, especially when the laundry is hanging on the lines in the afternoon blowing in the wind as far as the eye can see. So , aContinue reading “The Dhobi Ghat tour guide – 15 minutes”

Dignity – 15 minutes

Its grey and cold today. I helped out at the care home for the Christmas service. Chatted to old Jim who used to be in the Army and then a Bricklayer. Nice man, big smile on his face. Insisted on singing ‘ While Shepherds wash their socks by night’ and squeezed my hand hard asContinue reading “Dignity – 15 minutes”

Other Peoples things- 15 minutes

Another 15 minute exercise. I’m a great fan of The Shires music and I love their song – ‘Other Peoples Things’. I found there is a lady in America running an online business selling mystery boxes of random ‘things’. She has tapped into that love we all have for unwrapping presents. The thrill of theContinue reading “Other Peoples things- 15 minutes”
