  • Lost and Found

    Lost and Found

    I will look back on this week, in a year’s time, knowing how important it was for everything I became. A body is moving into shape. The requirement to fuel properly has become massively important. I can’t send things away to people and assume automatic failure any more. Most importantly of all, my voice is […]

  • Turn the Page

    Turn the Page

    Came quite close to passing out at the Gym last night. As of yet, I dunno if this is the indicator of anything more serious, but my blood work two weeks ago was nigh-on perfect, so /shrug. If I’m still here on Monday, I’ll go see someone. 72 hours is the time limit I was […]

  • The Other Side

    The Other Side

    I should have some professional news at the end of September. For now, I am forcing myself to rearrange my lifestyle. This is not without its stresses and strains, and the emergent realization that, at almost 56, remaining happy long term really isn’t sustainable. When I menstruated, the depression was magnitudes worse than it is […]

  • Cafe Del Mar

    Cafe Del Mar

    The last 20 days. Yeah. Two things I can’t talk about. I’ll get there eventually. Sit tight.

  • Ordinary World

    Ordinary World

    It took me a while to figure something out yesterday. I’ve been doing this for a LONG time now, just writing and commenting and building a body of work. The timing of this is not necessarily opportune or planned either, that must also be stated. You don’t make other people notice or comment. They do […]

  • This is the Sea

    This is the Sea

    Normally, I’d tweet the following. Today, I am going to see who comes, looking. Yesterday, I had my first session with a Mentor. It was, to be fair, exactly as I expected it would be. The pivot I was handed on a piece of work I knew full well wasn’t good enough to succeed has, […]

  • Standing in the Rain

    Standing in the Rain

    This time, I’m just going to promise myself, ‘update when you feel up to it’ :D Once upon a time, I wouldn’t have cared about the dangerous precedents being set in the wider world by people whose idea of difference is wearing anything other than M&S underwear. Now, it’s my job to keep the brain […]

  • Enjoy Yourself

    Enjoy Yourself

    Once upon a time, when I wrote blogs, this was all I had. My world was a lot smaller, and considerably less interesting. It was important to make myself feel that The Future would be more and that I was capable of reaching it. Having now got to a space where things are hard to […]

  • Hot Hot Hot

    Hot Hot Hot

    My optimal operating temperature’s about 18 degrees Celsius. The last few days, therefore, have been beyond grim. I came to the conclusion this afternoon that I was probably dehydrated, and no training today was a good call. So, I’m behind again. What can I say. There’s been no actual progress since we spoke last anyway. […]

  • Tomorrow

    Tomorrow

    Please forgive me, for it has been over a week since my last personal blog. There are a LOT of reasons for this, and all of them revolve around poems. Today, however, I put that all aside and did some work on my soul. Running is my new Thing, but instead of allowing it to […]
