A Wild Winter’s Mid-Morning In The Reminski District, Moscow, Russia

His initial feeling of gushing pride at being selected by the captain of detectives from the final year of cadet school to accompany him to a murder scene was quickly forgotten as the ground beneath his feet both crunched in agony and screamed in pain, as by measured stride followed by measured stride, the distance between the warmth of an official car and the body of an untidily dressed man widened until at last the Police Lieutenant Colonel’s car was reached. A window of the automobile was lowered, but no invitation to share the warmth within was extended to the new recruit. Motionless he stood, unable to curb the chilling frost that rose through his leather-soled shoes and climbed his legs like Superman on steroids, soon eating at the flesh beneath his lightweight college garments. In increasing discomfort, he began his account of the scene he had just walked from.

Why? A Complicated Love

Don’t count our life by the days that are past

Love doesn’t die on the day that’s our last

Love lasts forever and if it’s what made us whole

It will live with our spirit in the depths of our soul.

Love, Sex, Murder

Once I Was A Soldier—- But Never Was I Brave


There is no morality to be found in evil.

But to recognise that which is truly evil one must forget the rules of morality.

Once I Was A Soldier

Afghanistan in the mid-1990s, emerging from Soviet occupation, has become the focal point for American political intervention and one in which the British government has a keen interest. The seemingly impossible task of influencing the American selection of who forms a controlling alliance in that country falls on Fraser Ughert, the omnipotent chairman of the United Kingdom Joint Intelligence Committee.  

Once I Was A Soldier is a story of murder, exploitation and sex involving two wealthy women. One, the Machiavellian wife of the American Democratic Party’s presidential nominee, who seeks more power than she already has; the other, a young, attractive, but naive English book publisher, who wishes she had never inherited her family’s fortune. Both become entangled with a 44-year-old womanising British intelligence agent who is still looking to find his real self between glasses of whisky and the beds he shares.

There is no morality to be found in evil.

But to recognise that which is truly evil one must forget the rules of morality.

To discover what’s real but has no name.
Why do some illusions bring false hope and only shame?
Why accept a life and what it can bring,
If it’s full of nightmares on which one has to cling?

Failures being kept in the shadows out of sight
But failures should be used as beacons shining light
Science is full of failures but then look at what’s been achieved.
If failure kills imagination what could possibly be conceived?

To discover what’s in yourself and who you might be.
What you might become if you could set yourself free.
Is that possible or one of those dreams that never come true?
To discover what is actual truth and to find the real you

It Was A Predictable Time, It Was An Unpredictable Time

Life is so unpredictable that it becomes a predictable event.
But then of course comes the unpredictability of which some do lament.
To be unpredictable can have advantages that are very, very true,
But is your life predictable, or can unpredictable be levied on you?
