The Big Picture

Another website by the same owner as that of HandsFaceGrace is in the works. Watch this space! There are so many more different responsibilities and activities running concurrently right now, be it learning the Russian language, carrying out the duties of work, socialising in the greater community with a multitude of others, and almost everything …

The Light Touch

I understand a lot of what I have wrote on this website in the past may have been strongly worded to say the least. I was experiencing very different circumstances at that time as you can probably imagine, and was bursting at the seams with the desire to just have the old world back as …

Stay Positive

The British government is, inevitably, about to crush the freedoms and dignities of our society once more with an iron fist. But the flesh and blood, emotions and company, and heart and soul of a human being will always be worth more in material, socioeconomic, and sentimental value than the cold-blooded, jagged edges of an …

For the virus itself causes a condition that for a significant minority of our population will not be harmless, but it is small …

HandsFaceGrace

Just to say that we will get over fear. We will shake hands with our colleagues, tenderly touch our childrens’ and grandchildrens’ faces, and give grace to truly everyone irrespective of their age, ethnicity, marital status, disability or lack thereof, gender, income, or educational background. Neither the furlough merry-go-round, nor the mask mania perpetrated by …

Freedom Day

Well here it is. I didn’t expect the government would do this, but of all things they’ve gone and lifted national mask mandates. It is not all a happily ever after fairytale, though. With the mask juggernaut still lingering on London and Manchester public transport, and a PCR test bonanza to boot, the old normal …
