    Adventure Time

    For the next three days, I am on an adventure. The furthest north I’ve been post Lockdown is Norfolk: this is a lot further afield. Twitter will have pictures, if you are interested in such things. This is not just time off, though: I am going to film, and to write poetry. It will be […]

    Take Me I’m Yours

    I am going away at the weekend, but the blogging will continue. However, there needs to be time when a break is scheduled: once the habits are established, but not before. An important part of my routine has slid this week and needs correcting. I know why. It takes a long time for me to […]

  • Open Up

    Open Up

    It is a tough thing to cope with when the realization hits you’re more productive on a phone, typing single finger, than you ever were sitting at a desk. All those times that work/life balance fell apart thanks to staring at a computer screen. This is undoubtedly better. Morning right now starts with a cuppa […]

  • Getting Better

    Getting Better

    It is important to note that I have stopped hoping someone will notice my work. It’s not that I no longer care about critical acclaim or professional progress, rather that I know now, for an absolute certainty, that this shit was never in my hands to begin with. I can put myself out there and […]

    River

    The last few days have been a struggle, but here I am at the end of a day when everything got done, and my authentic voice survives intact. That’s what matters most, in the end, to survive and thrive regardless. There’s a lot to do this week as well, and I need to keep on […]

    Duet

    To prepare myself for going away, I’m writing this on my iPad. The WP app has always been notoriously flaky, and as it took three goes to load this after logging in, it is reassuring to see not much has changed in the five or so years since I did this last. I wrote two […]

  • Endless Art

    Endless Art

    The artwork is doing an important job. It is allowing me to release unexpected mental pressure. That means despite deciding I would stop drawing, tonight it’s continued to leech out of me. Tomorrow I need to tidy and organize to get back to some kind of normality, and to fit that drawing into the process. […]

  • The Climb

    The Climb

    I think I’ve sorted my ‘how can I get people to buy my shit when they don’t necessarily like poetry’ problem.

  • Things to Make and Do

    Things to Make and Do

    The Podcast is done, and I’ll probably sort out the rest of my outstanding work today, which then grants me a glorious Free Friday to go muck about with the last of the Estuary video. All I need now is some actual funding. Can’t be that hard, can it?

    If I Could Write Poetry

    Honestly, you shouldn’t even try.
