Few people talk about this - the strange interaction between some dreams and the real world. To show you what I mean, I'll give you a simple example of my own. A few years ago I had a series of dreams, night after night for about a week, in which I dreamt dead foetuses, some … Continue reading Paranormal World | Dreams entering reality
Now I think I know what it is I want to say about Jan 6. Like most people watching that violent, hysterical, deluded invasion of the US Congress, that attempt to overthrow an election through violence - with 99% of the participants white, many of the outnumbered Capital police Afro-Americans - at first I was … Continue reading Rescuing the Future | January 6 | Has the West lost it?
Yes, I wish I had a dollar for every time I've had to listen to reports of the angry debate in the USA over the border wall. What you never hear in those arguments is the voice of Mexico. When I was teaching English in Mexico City in 1969, the school put me in charge … Continue reading Rescuing History | I wish I had a dollar | Mexico and the border wall

My wife/lifelong partner has been suffering from Alzheimer's/dementia for years, along with some severe physical disabilities. I am her chief caregiver. We have entered the late stages and as much as you can read about … Continue reading Rescuing Ourselves | Alzheimer’s and dementia
From 2006 to 2016, I ran a website that I called Shy Highway. During that time I produced my second book, The Shyness Guide, then revised it, doubling it in size to what it is today. Along the way though, I got interested in autism. At first I tried to avoid the autism debate. It … Continue reading Is this the Autism Highway?
In my novels The Birdcatcher and Skol, and in The Shyness Guide, I’ve said that I think shyness and autism are both usually natural. I've also suggested that, in some people, they may be connected. This perception of them isn’t supported by any research as far as I know. But when I was a boy … Continue reading Autism and Shyness | Are they related?
