Shareefa Energy Reasoning With Self - Review

Shareefa Energy – ‘Reasoning With Self’ - Review



A few months ago the BBC offered a profile of new emerging female poets, ‘Women Who Spit’. Watching the short films by Jemima Foxtrot, Cecilia Knapp and Deanna Rodger, I noted with great relief that the art of poetry is alive and well. I have always been fascinated by the medium. The ability to express intricate thoughts and feelings in a few lines of words. It is the most empowering process. And empowerment through self-expression… Continue

This evening we found out what it would be like to be blind.

Posted on September 30, 2009 at 22:30 1 Comment

I always like to make a fuss of my Jean on her birthday so today I treated her to dinner at Dans Le Noir in Clerkenwell Green. The clue to this posting lies in the restaurant's name; when you eat you are, quite literally, in the dark.



Because Dans Le Noir is a blind restaurant. As well as providing some great food, it is a place with a purpose. It gives customers a chance to confront head on one of our greatest fears, that of losing our sight.



Upon arrival, we were asked… Continue

Day 6 - Home Again

Posted on September 27, 2009 at 22:30 0 Comments

Our day began with breakfast, followed by the task of cleaning numerous bowel evacuations from various birds off the roof of the car. "A charming way to start your day", you might think, but you have to bear in mind one thing - we were staying at the Hermitage Bed and Breakfast in Totland, Isle of Wight.



David and Jane Blake's establishment is an absolute peach of a find. In fact, to refer to it as their establishment is doing them a disservice. What I should really say is that it is… Continue

Our Thirteenth Day



June 19th



The fine weather conditions remained so we had a shore day. We had rather a long diary to write but we wrote it with a will. We then went to the Ingersley bathing hut and spent a wonderful morning swimming, sunbathing and sandbuilding.



The afternoon was spent again on the shore, after having brought presents to take home.

We had a lovely shore picnic. Mr Johnson kindly provided bread and butter, jam and cakes and we all had a… Continue

Day 5 - Alum Bay - The Needles - Old Battery - Rocket Men

Posted on September 26, 2009 at 23:00 0 Comments

We left the car behind today and took the coastal footpath to Alum Bay. The route took us over Headon Warren, an open heathland once used as a warren, where rabbits were farmed for food and fur. Before then, around 5,000 years ago, the resident Neolithic people deforested the area and used it as grazing land for their cattle. Now, the area is still the domain of the rabbit; although we never actually saw any (all probably hiding from the dogs that were being walked on this gloriously sunny… Continue

Art Work and Bum Fuzz

Posted by scott owen on May 5, 2017 at 17:15 0 Comments

My Bum Fuzz unit just arrived in California along with some plectrums with Edwin art. It took me along time to order this unit, but the twenty five year gestation period for it to be built surely eclipses my lack of urgency. Best regards all...

Thank you for the music

A while back I asked Edwyn if he would let me use his music on a little film I made.  Here is the result: Mill Mechanics

Thanks for that.

Dear Edwyn,

Can I just thank you for your contribution to my life. From that very first shiver I got listening to Felicity on the John Peel Show to the smile I still express today when you burst into laughter half way through Consolation Prize, it's important I let you know how much your music means to me before one of us croaks it.

I was hooked instantly and bought all the singles and albums, the ten inches, 12 inches and even ripped the flexi discs off Smash Hits and Melody…
