Hello Dancers, Skaters and Heartbreakers (and anyone else with an -er on the end!),

I am sensing new beginnings and evolution on the cards in this here investigation folder so the question this week was very fitting. Donning my detective hat I set out into the world to ask the world the same question over and over again but I was stopped in my tracks by a ‘homeless’ young man selling poetry in exchange for loose change.

I stopped and enquired about his handwritten notes. I said I’m a poet (my detective front of course) I said ‘Can I take a look?’. He said I can read you one if you want. He read out loud nervously but with passion and apologised after saying he ‘aint very good’. He was. And in the sharing of the poem he answered my question. Here is what he shared…

The note says…

‘Sterio – hyped’

Why oh why do people always judge and automatically think ‘coz I’m on the street…

I must do drugs & drink??

Wel, for you’s I have some news!

I’m over 2 yrs clean & serene,

That’s drug – free & sober : )

But… my life is washed down the Sink or I’m trapped in a nightmare

I just keep praying was OVER.

Thankyou and God Bless

Benji.

He had hit unintentionally on the image of a sink and seeing beyond  the surface of who people are. That’s it. That’s exactly it and it doesn’t need too much explaining. What people get people get what people need, people need.

So detectives you have cemented with your contributions this week what we kind of already knew. This blog is for all. Regardless of demographic, if you want to time to pause, reflect, wonder, have your voice heard with others around the world who desire the same your welcome to jump on board in anyway you wish.

As evolution takes place pondering will be directed towards how to include non digital natives in the conversation e.g the elderly and ‘homeless’ they both have so much wisdom and understanding of human behavior that goes unmissed. I will also be thinking about bridging the gap between philosophy and useful action. All thoughts, provocation and jokes (why not?) welcome…Till next time here are some Golden Nuggets…

What and who is this blog for?

Or the alternative version of that story is that I cut the interview by accident – duh! However  I managed to capture the TREASURE – Phew! Here’s what James contributed…

Dearest Piggy Bankers! I hope you are feeling rich and are valuing your valuables. I am very impressed with the international detectory this week and as evidence goes I think this week is a top 5 round up! During a walk in the sunshine three young detectives hijacked a ‘adult’ interview and asked if they could answer the questions. Have a listen to their wisdom – they are the future after all. Thankyou girls : )

Alright Superdooperstars?! How are you? Hmn I cannot hear your answer unless you shout reeeeeally loud – but I hope you are well! I am extremely happy to announce our 20th Anniversary here at The Sink (20 in sink years – obvs!). The global resident detective’s contributions have been awe inspiring, funny, sometimes elusive, sometimes to the point but always honest. Congratulations detectives for being so willing to share your world with the world. And of course a shout out goes to all the local detectives who have been interviewed and the twitter detectives who have definitely had their detective game on. Merci. : )

But….we are only just getting started with more evolutions in the pipe line. To celebrate our achievement there will be a little gift posted here and on Twitter very soon. We will also be launching a new feature so follow the blog to become part of the journey.

For now as we re-birth over Spring time let me share a beautiful insight into one lady’s world called Suzanne who works as a nurse in Manchester, UK.

Be great to hear what inspires you why not leave a comment. One thing is for sure is you guys who come back and appreciate the blog prove to be a huge source of inspiration and motivation as we move forward. Cheers! Until next time!

Hello Survivors! My wish for you this Mothers Day is to love the ability to mother yourself and others  in times of need and to sniff the roses when the garden is full of weeds. But enough with the sentimental analogies onwards to Mission Of The Week! The detectives have produced some treats and Chodak Hunter from The Tibetan Community North West  has shared some of who he is whilst helping us uncover the evidence for the question at hand….
