Heaven and Hell - Community Values. Diary of a non-feeding Vampire – (part 3x-b)

Heaven and Hell - Diary of a non-feeding Vampire – (part 3x-b) Imagine, if you can, taking a dog for a walk – having done so, on and off, for over 350 years. Sometimes your own neighbourhood can seem like paradise, sometimes the pits. And it isn’t just the weather … On a  recent walk of mine the whole district was very quiet, and I became aware of the absence of any such values. It was

Wholeness and Driving - Undead Diary chapter (2x +1)

Another excerpt from my 360+years diary of a reformed vampire The longer you live the more problems people seem to invent – or I am just being cantankerous? I’ll try to be more accurate – people keep inventing further complications. I can’t complain, though clearly I'm itching to! Driving, by which I mean personal ‘independent’ mobility with mechanical aids, is clearly a sort of additional

idollartry political satire - money infects democracy

idollartry Of course, no one knew this was about to happen, but a critical mass of people – all ages, both genders, from all countries, some rich, many poor, and most completely indifferent – were carrying the image of a sane, creative, empathic future society. Then there was one more. Suppose the critical mass was one million people (and, for all we know, non human mammals). The million

creepy parking ... and piles satire

Mr Creepy  retrieved his tobacco from under the settee while his wife was busy in the bathroom. He’d brought her back from town and was pleased to discover his parking space across the road hadn’t been taken. No sooner had he reminisced his good fortune, squatting by the settee, than he heard the sound of a large vehicle coming to a standstill outside his house. The road was a dead-end, and

Know thyself ... or wound others

Even in the tiny, quiet town of Smogdale, UpNorth County, in the UQ (the Untidy Queendom of Little England), the traffic congestion is getting so bad that Kevin the builder ha s a problem. Despite being a couple of inches short of 7 feet tall, well built and notoriously energetic, he doesn't want to carry his tools 200 yards from his van to his house every day after work. He doesn't want to

fiction - career choices on leaving school

Ivor and Paul were chatting in the barn, out of the (rather unusual) blazing sun, when Ivor's grandson arrived. Ivor made a big deal of greeting him, very warmly, and Paul raised an eyebrow. Alex looked up now and then and smiled, but mostly frowned, his gaze downcast. Ivor caught Paul's quizzical expression and gave the tiniest nod, which Paul had learned to interpret as "trust me, I’ll

Consciousness - The World in ones Head

Tibestian Book of the Undead, part 5 I think I was about 50 when I first realised that many people's world is almost entirely in their minds. I'd known for decades that people are complicated, very different .. weird. Including yours truly, of course. The first example I recall was when I'd spent many months rebuilding a barn, as well as having a full time job. I finished making the roof

Part 2 of The Tibestian Book of the Undead (read part 1 first ...) Chapter 3 Why am I writing this? Because I kept a diary, every day after I finally acquired paper, but after a century or so of diligently making notes and musings, someone stole it. I'd like to think it will turn up one day, but judging by my location at that time, it was probably used to light a fire or wipe someone's

The Diary (2nd edition) of a 360 year old Vampire Chapter 1 I was born in 1645, in a barn. My parents, or rather my mother, lived in a tiny caravan that was pulled by a horse. I can't remember the horses name, but, knowing my mother, it would have had one. Mother made all manner of useful things from wood. She knew every type of tree native to England, and of every land between France and

Where bottled water really comes from....
