Ralphie Is In Burgos.


Zaragosa was great, lovely friendly people and the cops left me alone. Don´t know anybody there though and want to get to Santiago de Compostela asap, so I left today and just now arrived in Burgos. I´m deliberating whether I might not do the Camino de Santiago(=pilgrimage) on foot, which would build up my strength. …

Ralphie Shall Have To Leave Barcelona!


Much as I love it here, the bloody cops will not let me make a living. Wherever I sit down to beg, they tell me: “You can´t sit here. It´s not allowed!” There are an awful lot of us here though… and I get food from the nuns. I´m not starving, but life is not …

Yawll Didn´t Give Up On Me, Now Did Yah!!???


Lil Ralphie is in Barcelona now, thanks to another little miracle, but I don´t have the time(money) to tell you all about it. I came here to see a dear friend of mine and what do I hear? He passed away two years ago on the street, farewell dear Paul! You are sorely missed. I …

Call to the Crones


Where are the owls Blodeuwedd? Called into the smoky trees of Summer? Calling in the daytime. Songs of desolation. Where are the hares? The horses? Epona? The chalky grassland has abandoned them.   We, The Wild Ones must, In Spirit, gather now. Leave the gardens And the fenced off fields. Here, on the fore shore …

A Message From A Wise Man!


Dalai Lama Given the scale of life in the cosmos, one human life is no more than a tiny blip. Each one of us is a just visitor to this planet, a guest, who will only stay for a limited time. What greater folly could there be than to spend this short time alone, unhappy …

Support My Gran´s Shelter for Abandoned Pets!


Don’t Abandon Your Pets in the Summer! (Photo credit: antipax) It took a rather nasty experience to force me to re-evaluate life in general. I shall no longer dwell on the negative aspects, because this is the whole point of yet another of life´s lessons. I have been trying, to no avail, to get a …

Does The End Justify The Means?


I´m happy, because I have a problem, two actually. I have found that when there is a complete lack of problems, life gets boring. And I´ve been known to go to great lengths to avoid boredom, just for the heck of it. What the Chinese consider a curse, namely: “May you live in interesting times!”, …

To Whom It May Concern:


I was forced(literally) to leave Fuengirola yesterday and am now in Granada, still alive and kicking, surprisingly. I can not give any further info. If anybody in Fuengirola reads this, please inform my friends that I am alright. There are not a lot of acquaintances left here that I know. I therefore plan to travel …

Dark drifting thoughts


I am filled with an emptiness that’s larger than an ocean blue across a vast horizon. Talking does not make me feel better. It only hurts more when the words don’t come as easily as one may think. Talk, but nothing is coming out, only emptiness is left. I can’t express myself, can’t find myself …
