  • You’re Not Alone

    You’re Not Alone

    My mate Russ is back on Social media after he went away and did his own thing. When he came back, there was a comment on how easy it was to just reintegrate into the world he’d left behind. The fact this was a surprise to him got me thinking… how you see the world […]

  • Beyond the Sea

    Beyond the Sea

    Apologies for lateness, but I’m currently editing the most important thing (thus far) I have ever made. It’s odd, how you constantly end up moving goalposts for yourself like this… or not, if you’re the kind of person who sees life as an ever more complex set of scenarios which require an improvement in ability […]

  • The Great Escape

    The Great Escape

    Happy #EasterWeekend everyone! 🐰☀️ pic.twitter.com/W131XyLL6C — GiveBlood 🅰️🅱️🆎🅾️ (@GiveBloodNHS) April 19, 2019 Well, here we are at the start of a holiday that normally filled me with dread. Not this time around. Even the scheduled Monday dinner with the parents is not nearly as stressy in advance as was previously the case. We might actually […]

  • Believe


    I am not proud of a lot of what has happened in my life. Often, what is talked about is edited highlights for a reason. Finding the words to describe what I was before this moment is painful and difficult, but they are coming. Yesterday, I found some new ones. Growth is the hardest thing […]

  • You May Be Right

    You May Be Right

    What if everything you’ve ever done has been leading to this point? A lot of time is spent contemplating our navels, like it or not. Imagination and role play as children allow vital opportunities to escape beyond the confines of self and stare forward to the future, with all the myriad of possibilities it presents. […]

  • Hunting High and Low

    Hunting High and Low

    Everybody wants to be inspired. It’s what Social media is perfect for. This morning, when I woke up, the first thing I saw was a video about an 80 year old Chinese guy who’s making a name for himself as a catwalk model. The Tweet’s no longer available, I assume because the company hijacking the […]

  • Every Day is like Sunday

    Every Day is like Sunday

    Ah, Easter. This is the time in our house where chores get done, shit gets thrown away and long-overdue promises are finally fulfilled. Today therefore is a fairly typical day of Resurrection: the garden is now cleared of all the rubbish from last week, and we have a man scheduled to come properly remove the […]

  • Idiotheque


    That definition is over a decade old, but is still the best description I can find of what it feels like sometimes to live Online. It is the reason why I pick my friends with care, and don’t hang around in the same places too long. In fact, I’ve become a bit of a digital […]

  • Standing on the Shoulders of Giants

    Standing on the Shoulders of Giants

    There are points in your life, I have discovered, when you know shit is going down. Sometimes, like Thursday of last week, the signs are too obvious to ignore. Having traced back from that point now with a medical person it becomes apparent that I’d been suffering for some time, but kept ignoring the signs. […]
