Spiritual Wisdom from a Crow

Walking in the woods with my dog. It was very quiet, very still and beautiful… misty. I became aware of a crow cawing and, at first, I didn’t think anything of it. Then I realised it was continuing and we were coming closer to it. I stood still and there it was on the very top branch of a tall, tall tree. Cawing out to the world sharing its message and its song. It lasted for at least ten minutes then it flew off. A little later I heard it again from further away. I felt it had touched something very primal and very deep. Keep Reading

To spa or not to spa

Since Grecian times, people have been harnessing the therapeutic power of water and heat, both of which were considered to be luxuries thousands of years ago as they were often hard to come by. It was the Romans who began to build thermal baths at natural mineral and hot springs and as the Roman Empire expanded into Europe, spas became a popular place to go to relax and socialise. Some say that the word spa is derived from the Latin word ‘salus per aqua’ which means health through water, whilst others attribute the word to the Belgian town of Spa where, in 1326, a Belgian ironmaster discovered a natural spring around which a health resort soon flourished.

Spring Cleaning

I sit in the beautifully decorated Festival Hall at the Caleta Hotel in anticipation to the start of a live concert by Guy Valarino. To all intents and purposes it’s New Year’s Eve (except that it isn’t) and GBC TV is filming a special – ‘An Evening with Guy Valarino’ which aired on the last night of 2021. I have mixed emotions because a chapter of my earlier life as a musician saw me play this iconic venue many times during the festive seasons of the seventies and eighties. Guy Valarino is from a new age of musicians who with technology at their feet can construct and deconstruct live music in front of our very eyes. Keep Reading

Notes from the road a viral boulder

‘La Mamela’ is a restaurant (currently closed) situated on Catalán Bay, Little Genoa, Gibraltar. It takes its name allegedly from a very large boulder that fell down from the top of the Rock of Gibraltar in the early 18th Century, crushing a number of houses before coming to rest in the bay, where it sits today. It was thus named by recently-arrived Catalán settlers as it resembles a woman’s breast when viewed from the shore. Keep Reading

Useful New Year’s Resolution Ideas for 2022

The first thing most of us do after Christmas and New Years Eve is think about all the things we want to achieve or change about our lives in the new year (or run to the gym). More often than not we make these long lists of things that we know we realistically won't stick to. I for one have accepted that I probably will never run a marathon, because I hate running long distances. I could however see myself pushing 100kg on the squat machine if I stuck to my strength training throughout the year. Whatever your goals and interests are, there are a couple of things we could all benefit from doing more of in 2022. Keep Reading
