RETREAT INTO INSANITY

In my experience with people,some seem to enjoy the buzz and high of mania,delusions,and narcissm as an escape from facing what they perceive to be harsh external reality. I talk to them and they love the mania high as a result of psychotropic drugs and/or psychosis. The irony is,that if they harnessed the mood,it could manifest itself as creative art or perhaps genius. Today the deluded often call themselves genius. Sometimes my writing is a welcome escape into a pure feeling state. I do empathise with the lost souls who drop the mask or persona in favour of dream like psychosis. If too fanciful or imaginative it may be hard to discipline yourself for external day to day activities and routines. The key to the difference between sanity and psychosis may lie in self insight and discipline and yes the activity of the physical brain.

WINDOW ON THE FUTURE

We are due for a new big name or two to emerge in the popular public eye. Like all the other icons , they will be praised and criticised ,and often in the same breath. The successful are always targets for unloading negative emotions. The tide seems to be turning against Barcelona ,since it is too hard for many birds and fanciers. The type of dedication needed is huge and with special birds. The BICC, the parent organisation will thrive,yet reach a plateau in terms of membership numbers. Many of the old guard fanciers will continue in a devoted manner,with a sprinkling of young bloods. I feel that feeding and supplements have peaked,as we can get the birds in great condition now. It will be interesting to see who writes the next book,as global knowledge of the intracacies of the sport has climaxed. For those who enjoy all aspects of the game,time to persist.

REWARDS FOR HARD WORK

They used to call it the protestant work ethic. With 65 years of study in the bag,to me it is longterm focus and dedication. Wise to recognise your talents and gifts and put in the years of work and self discipline it entails to make your mark. Success does not fall with the rain,it is earned. No amount of good birds will serve you well without clever practice of the art and science of the sport. A recent model of ambition and realisation of goals is Mark Gilbert,and you will not replicate his performance with his birds alone. Results are the product of what you think of and do in reality. Nice to realise yopur dreams,and you will meet opposition in the form of fellow man- a strange species humanity,do you not think. Wise to be focused on objectives,as they may take you places!

THE RISE OF THE MERITOCRACY.

The elite fanciers have got to the top for a multiplicity of reasons. With a few birds with potential they have become famous because of their personality. They all have the desire and ability between the eyes to dedicate themselves to some good if not great results.It is the inner psyche of the man that i place above the pigeon ,which is the outward expression of a mans ego. Yes there is a balancing act between the human and bird which can be perceived as one. The great strain names get known because of the people behind the publicity. Fortunes are blown on pigeons,when the quintessence of the game is cultivation of what you have at home. In the mainstream,the fame game is led by the ones who crave accolades and recognition,yet i admire the independent ones who like to keep quiet and largely unknown. We must all admire those who do the unusual or something peculiar.

EPSOM SHOW

I understand this will be a nice,interesting show with many diverse people in attendance. A shrewd eye will spot some quality birds,and there will be some top characters there. Countryside Audio and Visual will have a display of their wonderful DVD films. Many of these illustrate the birds and lives of unique characters in the sport. Produced by experts they are all authentic,expert  and entertaining. The Racing Pigeon will display a great collection of items,steeped in pigeon culture with books and films and magazines available. Officers of the great BICC will tell you of this peerless organisation that is a blueprint of the competitive future of pigeon racing-take my word and join this elite club.  You will get out of the show in proportion to enthusiasm for it. I hope you have a fascinating day out at this lovely venue.
