“Why should I avoid the paths where others wander free?
why should I shun mankind when I have done no wrong?
I wonder the earth in search of rest, and see a signpost standing there.
There is a road I must take, from which no wanderer has yet returned.”
Greetings dear readers, and fellow souls. It is a sad time in our household since Amanda’s only brother was taken from this world, unexpectedly, just yesterday morning. He was in his forties.
We must always be ready for when we may be called. And, if we can find a moment, in our hearts, to breathe a prayer of strength for those who are in grief, the world over, then the divine will not fail to act.
With my best wishes to you all, until next time, namaste from Amras.

Born in 1953, I am a composer, instrumentalist and Logic 8 software practitioner. NHS Bereavement Counselor retired. A Philosopher now disabled, bedbound but happy. I have been a Buddhist, martial artist, paramedic, orthopaedic technician, professional artist, civil servant, photographer, and amateur astronomer. I have owned houses, and been homeless. I have been hungry and full. Made enemies, and made friends. The pits, and the peaks. Unable nowadays to leave my bed for more than a few minutes per day. My limited time is employed in reading and musical composition. I had many works performed for the public during my active youth. Having started in classical music as a promising child violinist, I migrated to perform in Folk and Progressive Rock groups, in 1970, playing bass/lead guitars, and flute. I have recently been experimenting with classically themed prog. rock pieces, which I find quite exciting. For all this, and good friends lost, I could not survive on this transforming Earth for long without the 24/7 input I receive from my ever present, loving, intelligent, and fantastically talented family. Love to my wife, son, and dog.
