‘A tra poco’ lets take a short break, from destroying our planet, listen to those that will inherit it, learn from the indigenous cultures of the past and see the future in a better way, let’s do more, let’s act, let’s ask those that are in ‘power’ to act on our behalf, repeatedly, or let’s change them out for those that will, let’s stop this circus of stupidity that values today over tomorrow.

The New Brave .

If it is brave to be tough – is it not also brave to show sensitivity?  

If it is brave to fight in anger – is it not also  brave to not fight the sadness?  

If it is brave to get on with it – is it not also brave to sit still in it?    

If it is brave to confront something – is it not also brave to choose to retreat?  

If it is brave to hold emotion back and in – is it not also brave to feel it?   If it is brave to be in the spotlight – is it not also brave to be alone?

Introducing Robin Small 

His future lay unbound….Although inspired by the Super Hero of ancient times, Robin Hood, Robin Small is not the crusading sort, he’s more of an outsider who is simply heroic in his own time. He is apprehensive within the modern world, yet stands firmly in his vulnerability. He is wise and brave in his own life and journey – and the steps he takes towards a future of his own making.

Find Robin Small in Clunk & Jam book 2019.

Held tight by a constant hesitation, for a time, Robin’s world remained unchanged – as did he.

Footnote:   Robin seems to be a quietly brave lad, who may have undisclosed or hidden doubts and fears.   Maybe he’s standing still and taking his own time to work things out?  Maybe he’s not ready to go anywhere right now?   Do anything?
