I’ve been accused in the past of being resistant to change, which I consider more than a little strange because I see myself as someone who loves change: I love to stir things up, move things on, question the way things have been done, inject freshness where things hav...

I can't deny that I'm writing this with an ulterior motive. I may as well come clean straight away. It's this: I've just finished my first Masonic-inspired slate engraving and I want to see how it is received. I'd like to know if there's a market out there for a hand-m...

Bobs have always been quite important in my life...I don't know why. As a young man, my two main Bobs were Bob Marley and Bob Dylan. They both inspired me in different ways and, as is often the way, I realise that their songs and, in some respects, their lives gave sha...

In something of (forgive the expression) a turn up for the books, I sold a book, face to face the other day to a Hare Krishna devotee. It made me laugh – in a good way – because, over the years, I’ve bought a lot of books from Hare Krishna devotees but never in my wild...

I visited Freemasons’ Hall again a couple of weeks ago, this time with my younger son, Sami. It was a weekday so everything was open and we had hoped to catch a tour… Like his brother, Sami seems quite interested in this weird thing that his dad’s into and was willing...

I’ve been busy…again…and I’ve been thinking…

It’s hard to say what I’ve been busy with…some very concrete things: I’ve put two more books up on Amazon. They’re nothing to do with Freemasonry, they’re both books aimed primarily at teenagers and young adults. The first is...

I’ve had a busy few weeks. Among the many things that have distracted me from the obviously important task of writing this blog has been the celebration of my mother’s 80th birthday. We had a really lovely day. The sun shone, eighty people turned up to a party in a hir...

I was up in London at the weekend and was delighted that my 25 year old son, Jesse, agreed to come on a visit to Freemasons’ Hall with me. In fact, not only was he willing, he was downright keen and said that he’d been wanting to go for a long time. He’s read my books...

I haven’t done it on purpose, but I realise that I’m writing this on Valentine’s Day. I have to admit that I’m also writing with half an eye on the clock as I’m off to my Lodge meeting soon and must battle through floods and uncertain conditions to get there.
