    Blew my streak yesterday. I’ll get over it. Dealing with trauma and nerves pre-Kendal however? Not *quite* so simple…

    Easy

    Something magical happened at the Gym this morning. For the first time, I saw the person I want to be staring back at me from mirrors that, for a long time, have been massively intimidating. My ankle is still painful, but I jogged on it for nearly 10 minutes without issue, which tells me that […]

    Saturday

    Still drawing, still healing, and most definitely moving forward.

    Yesterday, in the middle of a Poetry Writing session, my brain rubber-banded back to the moment when I almost drowned during a swimming lesson as a kid. I’ve never learnt to swim as a result, and honestly don’t feel particularly safe in the water, ever. It’s something that will, in time, be dealt with, but […]

  • A new Day at Midnight

    A new Day at Midnight

    It occurred to me yesterday, in the midst of exercise at the Gym, that my life is beginning to make more sense. Personally, despite the occasional falling down into holes and literally injuring myself that takes place, everything is working out very well. It allows me an opportunity to turn focus onto the professional portion […]

    Believe Me Now

    Where has the week gone? I know the answer to this, it is all in planning and recovery from this ankle injury. We are getting there, slowly but surely. It would be helpful, if in future, the attempts at self sabotage could be kept to a minimum. A lot is in the pipeline for next […]

    This is the Sea

    The first proper project I’ve undertaken for myself alone is DONE, or at least it will be once the subtitling is fixed tomorrow. I have two more projects ready to roll starting Friday, though the chances are I will start early on them both. Most importantly today, something I said was fixed a couple of […]

    Hard Rain

    I could do an update, but honestly, you don’t want to see it. I’m not proud of myself, either. Next time, LOOK WHERE YOU ARE WALKING, DOOFUS. Today I’ve been mentioned on Radio 4 by a poetry hero, and been rejected twice. Frankly, the latter can do one. The former is FAR more fun. I […]

    Today was the first time I’d ever had a Greggs. It was also the first time that what mattered more than the problem was the solution. This is a VERY important day indeed.

    Take a Chance on Me

    This was a pleasant surprise to receive in the middle of a park in Ulverston on a breezy Saturday morning. This was also one of the things I just went for when it turned up in my feed at the start of the month. Sometimes, it is less about thinking and more just doing. Other […]
