    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 […]

    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

    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 […]

    Blowing in the Wind

    I didn’t realize this was physical. The assumption was it would be virtual, and suddenly I’m even more pleased that out of 700 subs, summat managed to land. Also, all of these were read blind. I am rewarding myself with chocolate for this one. This is a big deal. Let’s hope there’s a chance at […]

  • I am particularly proud of this for many reasons, but mostly because the poetry really is my own, authentic voice right now. Good and bad, there is no escaping the inevitable. Let’s see where it takes me.

    Don’t Tell Me

    This will be a priority over the weekend, I think…

    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 […]

    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 […]

  • 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.
