May Day, and a mayday for our world

And yeah, this is where it gets seriously scary. Not just for me: for just about everyone. I mentioned in the previous post that “I hate the money-economy”. It might be useful if I explained why? — Yes, this is May Day. Beltane,

The bucket-list – funding the work

And, yeah, this is where it gets kinda scary. For me, anyway… I hate the money-economy. (Understatement… But explaining that is for another post than this one.) The reality, though, is that I do have to find some way to work with

The bucket-list – next steps

Frameworks, tools and so on. All the stuff that’s in the bucket-list. There’s a right way to do it. There’s a wrong way to do it. (There’s also an all-too-common incompetent way to do it – throw together a mish-mash of half-baked

A post-truth era?

Do we now live in a post-truth era? I’ve heard that question quite a lot over the past few weeks and months, after a year in which a lot of people made a lot of money and more from peddling

Structure, story and relational-assets

This is an attempt to get back towards ‘Normal Service Will Be Resumed…‘ – I don’t know how coherent it will be, but it’s a start, anyway… Over the past few weeks I’ve had a stream of very good questions from Eric

Normal Service Will Be Resumed…

Yes, I’ve been quiet here for quite a while. Apologies for the absence and all that. Various reasons. One has been the un-joys that is the so-called ‘holiday season’ – a month-long hell of family, ghastly fake-music and faked-up pseudo-jollity everywhere, the

Business-novel – chapter 19-21

And yes, another instalment for the business-novel that I’m working on at present – the previous posts to date have been for Chapters 00-03, Chapters 04-08, Chapters 09-12 and Chapters 13-18. (For reference, everything so far I’d written back in 2013, and this will
