About This Blog

This blog was originally started as a thread on the forum pages of an animal rescue site. Now it's here!

The articles you find in here are purely for entertainment (yours and mine) and (with one or two exceptions) are all tongue-in-cheek chronicles of the World (my bit, anyway) as I see it.
No disrespect is intended towards anyone unless I make a mistake and make it too obvious.

I hope you enjoy my offerings. Feedback and comments of any kind are welcome.

Life: Why The Journey Continues

Many times I have heard life described as a 'journey'.

Where this 'journey' is taking us is unclear but many would argue that it is a journey towards spiritual enlightenment or towards God himself.

This may be true.

However, I don't think that we (the human race) will ever reach the planned destination.

Life, I have discovered, resembles one of those Joint-the-dots pictures.
When you start, there is nothing but a page covered in dots and the further you draw your line from dot to dot, the more of a picture appears.

But is it really so simple?

I think not!

Life changes.

Every time you look away to sharpen your pencil, a shaggy dog covered in ink will shake himself over your 'page' and hey-presto!  More dots!

Life is such a complicated thing ... really it is.

Not a shaggy dog story at all.


  1. So many dots...and you never know if you are connecting them in the correct order.

  2. Well put. We look for patterns but rarely take into account the scope.


  3. Does this post make me a philosopher now?


Any and all comments are welcome ...
