    Praying for Time

    Those of you paying attention will notice I had a week off. I can’t do this full on any more, and knowing why is half the battle, and that’s the reason we have an assessment with a mental health professional in two weeks. Deep down, I’m pretty sure I know what the problem is. This […]

  • Just For You

    Just For You

    A weekend of game-playing did the trick. I am back on track and in the groove, and this is progress because instead this morning of playing a game over breakfast, there was exercise instead. I promised myself something, every day this month, even if it’s just a walk, and that plan has been kept to […]

    Wondrous Stories

    Feedback is the best thing in the world. Even the bad stuff is good, you know. It means someone is reading your work. That’s the key, it’s why word of mouth on The Socials is so important. When you get trolled, and we all do, it’s still a good thing because, like it or not, […]

    Again, from the Top

    Please forgive me, it has been 17 days since my last blog. Since then, two members of the household have tested positive for Covid, and are now recovering. I’ve discovered my brother is an asymptomatic carrier. I managed one day in the Gym after isolation, and now I won’t get another one for possibly months. […]

  • Absent Friends

    Absent Friends

    This is the lightest I have been mentally for probably fifteen years. It has a lot to do with not playing a particular game on release, I realised yesterday, that the tyranny of being part of something no longer wanted has finally been put to rest. After that, it’s stepping away from an obsessive need […]

  • Hello, Hello

    Hello, Hello

    This is the longest blog break here for a while. I’d like to explain why. If all I had to do was be more organized, this would be easy. The fact remains there is a lot more to my evolutionary step this time than just writing more lists. I have a body to properly alter, […]

  • The Big Sky

    The Big Sky

    It’s rather splendid to have woken up on a Saturday morning with nothing obvious ragging at me to be done. It’s also useful to be working on the laptop as our front room is currently a bedroom/games room. Allowing my daughter a safe space to express herself with friends where she’d have to be outside […]

    All or Nothing At All

    Yesterday was lost to reality. It wasn’t all bad. There’s a bug in that picture, I assume on one of the three lenses. It is almost time to upgrade my phone again (yes, really has been two years) and yet again camera strength will be a significant factor in purchase. I have my eye on […]

  • Think


    Saying nothing, until you are capable of formulating a rational answer. It is a lost art, especially amongst the political. They would rather grasp the immediacy of the visual metaphor. It’s cleaner, easier and only requires your military to tear-gas a couple of blocks and not shut down the whole damn Capitol. Except, of course […]

  • Yesterday’s Men

    Yesterday’s Men

    Wednesday is normally a bit teeth-grindy. I can’t do that really right now, though this morning it must be said the pain has reduced from yesterday so maybe I should just shut the fuck up and wait to heal. The Bond 25 trailer dropped, and despite best efforts I could not escape it: it even […]
