We are given the authority to label things. Then we live with the consequences. As I sat in a building purpose built for worship, I watched as at least a hundred people walked in, crossed them selves, knelt, and labelled that space as sacred. The same naming has been done by thousands of people for […]

Writing from the back of a car sailing through the night of South Central Sweden, returning west from a Camp on the east coast I can’t sleep even though I haven’t slept properly in days. I share the car with three incredible individuals and have attempted a lullaby care of La Disputes newer album. I […]

To an extent, I was taught to think. Dad would read to us from proverbs at breakfast and discuss them with us. Mum would sit on my bed and chat through what was happening in life and why it would be wise to think through certain other options. Back then it seemed unfair. I just […]
