  • Yes, a poem.

    This is good.

    Just as Beau Brummell's ferrule

    and waistcoat have merged

    with the wigs and stay-laces

    of five decades earlier

    in my mind, so the Ted

    and the Mod and the Rocker

    will slowly converge

    in the fullness of time.

    to a mixture, an aggregate

    post-war character

    dug from a beach that

    was once five miles inland,

    the salt dark dissolving

    the edges, the features,

    till they can't tell between us

    and none of it matters.

    Pop - from The Dark Film, Paul Farley

Welcome to the blog

Neil (the minister) occasionally gets round to blogging so welcome to the trivia and ramblings of an erratic stream of consciousness.

Because we try to be properly Baptist, these views aren't necessarily the views of everyone who is part of the church family here.

We're not even sure they're Neil's.

Either way, we try not to fall out over it.

You can also follow Neil's personal and irrelevant twitter.
