Episodic memory failure in a post-truth world

It’s Sunday morning and so once again I allow you into the darkest depths of my mind and share my thoughts about my continuing journey through life. I was out taking photos in the town centre yesterday as part of my role publicising the Business Improvement District. There was supposed to be a visit by an MEP but she didn’t turn up. I’m not surprised. It was cold and windy and our town centre isn’t very inviting on a summer’s day let alone on a chilly winter’s day. Perhaps she has episodic memory problems too?

Is it still raining? #ramble

Is it raining?

Is it raining?

It’s Sunday morning and so once again I let you into the weird labyrinth where I keep my innermost thoughts. What’s on my mind this week? On a Sunday, I like to write this ramble in the morning and then after lunch, I like to do some landscape photography while I can drive about without facing mind destroying congestion. Of course, on Friday’s when the congestion is the worst we get the sunshine and on Sundays it’s always raining.

I was out last night taking photos at Churchill’s club where my brother was celebrating his 60th birthday. I have looked through the photos this morning and they are quite good. I deleted far fewer than usual and so I must be getting better at this event photography.

Art and culture #ramble

I think the town I live in lacks some cultural opportunities. The art gallery rarely seems to have anything interesting on and only opens three days each week. It closes altogether in the winter. I think we could make a bit more of an effort to get funding from the Arts Council for a summer exhibition. The Royal Academy of Arts has a summer exhibition and so why shouldn’t we? Yes, today I’m sharing my thoughts with you as I usually do on a Sunday morning. I have art and culture on my mind this morning.

In search of serendipity #ramble

Serendipity means a “fortunate happenstance” or “pleasant surprise”. It was coined by Horace Walpole in 1754. In a letter he wrote to a friend, Walpole explained an unexpected discovery he had made by reference to a Persian fairy tale, The Three Princes of Serendip.

You get serendipity in science as well, when researchers discover something just by chance, that they weren’t even looking for.

Blue sky thinking #Sunday #ramble

It’s Sunday morning and so once again I allow you into the labyrinth of neural pathways that is my brain and share my thoughts with you. What’s on my mind this week? I’m still doing social media stuff and trying to share pictures of the community I live in that show it in a positive light. I could do dark industrial pictures of the Black Country but we now have nature reserves and we even have the Black Country forest! Times change and there is no point getting stuck in the past. Industry belongs to a bygone age, we are now producing different things and it can be more fun and be more creative. Anyway, I’m now into blue sky thinking.

Lacking leadership? #ramble

It is Sunday morning and so what’s on my mind this week? Well, imagine for a moment that you’re lost in the forest. What would you do? You would probably look at the position of the sun and that sort of thing to get your bearings. If you were with a group of people you would probably ask if anyone knew the way out. You would look for a leader because a group lacking leadership just wanders around aimlessly. I’m not a fan of the Tories but Theresa May does have leadership qualities.

Status – not all that it seems? #ramble

It’s Sunday morning and so once again I am going to ramble and give you a glimpse into my mixed up mind. What’s on my mind this week? Yes, it is things that aren’t all that they seem. Quite often, I think, this is not what it seems. People’s motives aren’t always what they say they are. You might think that new block saved drive is to drive the car on but is it? A slab of concrete or a tarmac drive would be easier to maintain and cheaper. Block paved drives look better, though. The real reason for that new drive is to show off a status symbol. Then you need a shiny new car to put on it. Why is status so important to us?

Instincts and associated tribal behaviour #ramble

It’s Sunday morning and so, as usual, I’m going to ramble on and share my thoughts. Psychologists study the mind and people’s thoughts and it is a fascinating subject. Our thoughts govern our behaviour but we do some things without thinking. Our instincts govern some behaviour; a child doesn’t need to learn how to cry. Some behaviour appears to be instinctive but isn’t, it is learned like those automated actions we do when riding a bike or driving a car. Some thinking and associated behaviour are tribal, like giving and receiving gifts. Reciprocating gifts is a tribal trait even when the gift is a simple handshake or hug. Reciprocating Christmas and birthday cards is a good example, too.

It only takes one kid to pee in the pool

It’s Sunday morning and so, as usual, I grant you an exclusive ticket to take a peek into the inner workings of my mind. What’s on my mind this week? Spoilers! When I was a kid there was always that one kid in the park that took great pleasure in openly peeing in the paddling pool. The other kids would run in disgust back to their mommies. It only takes one doesn’t it? That’s life, there is always a spoiler, a shit stirrer, a moron who thinks it’s clever to piss-off everyone else. There is always one kid who will pee in the pool.

Smart thoughts from the centre of the labyrinth #ramble

It’s Sunday morning again and so I allow you into the labyrinth that is my mind and share my thoughts with you again. What’s on my mind today? My new phone! Aren’t they expensive? It cost as much as my laptop. It is cool, though. Last night,  I was lying on my bed, eating crisps and drinking beer, as you do and I got YouTube on it and actually cast the picture and music to my television! How cool is that? I even got Google maps up on my television. I admit the YouTube thing wasn’t that smart because I have a smart telly that can get YouTube anyway, but it is a smart phone. My thoughts are very smart today. Aren’t they?

New year and so some new plans #ramble

So it’s 2017, I wasn’t expecting to live this long or I would have looked after myself better. Last night my phone said ‘emergency calls only’. I thought maybe the network was overloaded with people wishing each other happy new year. It seems the sim has developed a fault. I have ordered a new one online. My new year isn’t off to a very good start.

Photography, psychology and pictures

I’m here again, Sunday morning and I’m sharing my innermost thoughts with you once again. I used to write my Sunday ramble while my lunch was cooking. This morning my breakfast hasn’t gone down yet. I only wrote a short post yesterday because I had a busy day. I have a photo shoot this morning too and this one is even earlier.

Winter thoughts on Sunday #ramble

It is only 10 days to the Winter Solstice and the official beginning of winter. Anyway, it’s Sunday morning and so as usual, I let you into the darker corners of my mind and share my thoughts with you.

Christmas in just three weeks #ramble

It’s Sunday morning and the sun’s shining and so I’ll let you into the most inner sanctum of my mind and share my thoughts with you once again. As usual, I’ve been taking photographs and actually spoke to some of the people I was photographing yesterday. I went to a book launch and bought myself a Christmas present, signed by the authors.

Lottery wins: do they always come in threes?

It is Sunday morning and so as usual I’ll share my thoughts and allow you into the inner workings of my deeply troubled mind. Anyway, I forgot to mention last week that I’d won the lottery. Don’t worry it won’t change me and I deserved a bit of luck. They say things to do with luck come in threes don’t they? I’ve had good luck and bad luck this week.

Esoteric pursuits #ramble #writing #photography

It’s Sunday morning and so as usual, I share my thoughts with my readers. I used to use a lot more words when I was younger and now I’m older and blogging I need an enlarged esoteric vocabulary and so I’ve been refreshing my memory and adding new words. I do have a terrible memory so it isn’t easy.

Remembrance 2016 #ramble

Regular readers will know that I share my thoughts with you on a Sunday morning  and just ramble on. You also know I take photos. I’ve photographed two remembrance services so far.  One Last Saturday evening at the cenotaph to rededicate it and yesterday I was at the cemetery for a service when we not only remembered the fallen servicemen of war but also local people who lost their lives in at home to attacks by Zeppelins.

Super-moon, the weather and the state of the world

It’s Sunday morning and so once again I will let you into the dark passages of my mind with another Sunday ramble. What’s on my mind this week? Well, the super-moon, the weather and the state of the world.

A Halloween ramble #ramble #Halloween

It is Sunday morning again, how time flies! I shall let you into the darker, dustier pathways of my mind and share my thoughts with you. I can’t do anything right this morning, so I hope I can find something interesting to amuse you with. I photographed a charity event raising money for Sam’s Dream yesterday. It was dark and miserable again, but I got a few good photos inside the cafe. I have used a lot of photos of Sam so this time I’ll share a scary picture of his sister Lisa. She deserves a moment in the limelight in her Halloween make-up.

How time flies #ramble #photography

I photographed a pageant princess, Libby Rose, the other day. It seems incredible to me that she was born in this century and has no memories of the 20th century. When I was helping students with their studies I would sometimes ask their date of birth and it would be 1990 and that would seem like yesterday to me. Time flies, doesn’t it?

Winning the lottery that is life #ramble

Yes, it’s Sunday morning again and so I allow you into the innermost sanctum of my mind and share my thoughts with you. I just checked my lottery numbers; Nah, I didn’t win. Life isn’t too bad as it is, though. If you want a chance of winning the lottery that is life, you have to get involved. I dragged myself along to Tesco yesterday and photographed a fundraising tin shake for Sam’s Dream. I enjoyed it, that’s winning life’s lottery.

Every cloud has a silver lining #ramble

Good morning, readers. It’s Sunday morning again and so I ramble on and allow you into the darker pathways of my mind as I share my thoughts. I’ve had a lot of ill-health. When I go to the doctor I have to take a list of the things that are wrong with me in case I forget anything. I watched Casualty last night and I try to figure out what’s wrong with people before the doctor tells us.  That guy last night with the psychotic behaviour fooled me. I wouldn’t have guessed he had lupus. If I go berserk and start attacking people with a large machete, I have an excuse now; it’s my lupus. Every cloud has a silver lining.

Autumn colours and cooler days #ramble

Autumn

Autumn is truly upon us now and the light for photography is getting warmer and less harsh and nature is getting ready for its winter sleep. Along with those golden autumn colours, we are also experiencing cooler days. Talk is of Halloween and bonfires and there are reports of fireworks already. That could just be a community signal to signify a certain delivery…

More than enough for everyone #ramble

It’s Sunday morning and as usual, I let you into the dark corners of my mind and ramble about the variety of stuff that is whizzing around in there this morning. As usual, I’m thinking about photography and right at the moment I need a keyword for this post! I’m thinking, there is more than enough for everyone. I mean more than enough food to feed the world and more than enough oil because there is a glut isn’t there?

Ted says, there is more than enough
