So imagine rediscovering that part of your Soul you'd forgotten about while trying to be someone else. Leave your city driving behind and grab an ice-cream. Slow down and allow gentle, natural beauty to smooth your concerns to easy contentment...
APPALLING LIES & INSPIRING MISSIVES
By William Gerwyn
Recently adopted by yet another cat, William Gerwyn has lived in the heart of Anglesey for most of his life and has always valued the stories he has been told by his family.
In this book, William Gerwyn writes in this book about local wisdom, both contemporary and those reaching back to great grandparents and their memories. While memory of a person’s physical presence is lost within a generation, their words and sayings can still be found in our daily conversations and observations on our world. Witty and barely credible, these are old words in new clothes covering topics of love, affection, sadness and easy cruelty.
“I’m happy to walk out with you but leave your ukulele at home.”
“Never make difficult things look easy, because there’s always some over-ambitious idiot out there who’ll think he can do it.”
“When it comes to the Milk of Human Kindness, the milk van doesn’t stop at his house.”

When you’re in a hole the best thing to do is stop digging’.
But what do we do? We carry on digging.
Why is that we can look at other people in trouble and identify what’s probably going wrong for them? But why are we so blind when it comes to sorting out where we’re going wrong? It’s the same bloody skill.
It’s all a bad habit. We know what’s wrong, but we deny it and hide solutions in the ever more complex and confusing emotions that we gather as a shield around ourselves. We just get tired and it’s all futile isn’t it?
I’ve found my best lessons in stories and conversations. Here are some of them for you in “I’m Waiting As Quickly As I Can”.
'Given a Reason to Kill' presents you with a plausible
template for understanding the internal and external forces which exhort many
to exhibit behaviours considered as ‘Pure Evil’. These reprehensible acts can
shockingly be justified as rational by those committing the crime.
Many of us find ourselves unable to understand how an individual can revel in the horror of carrying out acts beyond belief. Sadly, this is nothing new. Humanity has been here before and will be here again – all too soon.
Man is not a Rational Being but a Being who Rationalises. Therein resides our downfall...
