“Or must I be content with discontent…?”

Edward Thomas

bookbigA voyage through places and ideas, A Little Nostalgia for Freedom explores our desire on the one hand to put down roots, to conform and fit in, whilst on the other yearning for a freer, more adventurous life. The consequence of surrendering our freedom to the mortgage and the career is that we might end up living not quite the life we expected to live, haunted by a sense of possibility just at the edge of our experience.

As he takes us on a wry and idiosyncratic journey through London, Morocco, Hong Kong and the Sahara, encountering thought provoking and odd characters along the road, SB searches for ways that we can reconnect with our lost sense of freedom by adopting a more audacious way of being and in so doing, open up new possibilities in our lives. The result: challenging and witty insights into the roots of our restlessness and ‘five rules of the road’ for a more adventurous and possibly more fulfilling life.

“I looked up. Tim had taken his finger away and there, as the slot machine uttered the odd electronic whimper, the fiddle bow floated, unaided in mid air, defying gravity and the laws of sense.”

“A voyage through places and ideas exploring the roots of human restlessness and the five rules of the road for a more fulfilling life!”

SB playfully blends travel, psychology and the philosophy of identity, into a slightly surreal, mischievous and challenging exploration of who we are and who we might be.

Steve launches The Artisan Manifesto !

What do you call real music, played on real instruments (perhaps for real people !! ) With the failure to find a single word mostly it seems we resort to a list: acoustic; blues; folk; roots; world; Cajun; trad jazz; Americana, etc. Somehow instinctively people sense they are bound in someway. Well they are! They are […]
