The Chain

The last time new headers were produced was October, which seems like a lifetime away, I’ll be honest. It might be time to schedule some artwork, and other gubbins of that sort. In fact, serious thought is being given to a week off, plus cessation of regular ‘features’, which is likely to happen at some point around Easter. The boost to creativity this gave was considerable when it happened in August, though there was a massive downside: routine keeps me sane. So, the jury is currently sitting with their cuppas, considering options…

I dead-lifted 55kg at Saturday Bonus PT yesterday. That’s a new Personal Best.


There are a lot of potential irons in my Fire of Creative Passion right now. Some are practical, others (frankly) downright ridiculous. Deciding what matters most is, of course, always a bit difficult: stay with safe and what you know, or go off piste for a grin? As time goes on, the grin options become increasingly more attractive, simply because there’s never any idea of such opportunities will ever present themselves again. Then there’s the need to keep pushing forward, which is why increasing weights are now a Thing again.

There’s no point unless there’s progress. It feels like the right thing to do.


Days like today are great for getting these kind of issues addressed and concluded. They’re also useful for editing and submitting (both happening today) and running. Yes, there will be lots of running, which reminds me… I must charge my headphones…


We have the health side of things sorted. Time to fix the output online.


Once upon a time I wrote a daily blog about the thing that mattered most in my life at the time. That interest has now been superseded. Therefore, finally, comes the acknowledgement that there must be change of both interest and direction. Of course, I’ll still write about gaming, but that part of life no longer holds the significance it once did. It is time to move on.


I really like the simplicity of this layout, so don’t expect any major artistic alteration any time soon. There’s a push for more immersive interactivity on websites, but for me that’s all a waste of time. This is not a place to sell you shit or get you to sign up to a newsletter. It’s where the contents of my brain are presented. That demands nothing fancy. Choose to read, or don’t. It should be content defining that decision.

Therefore, there ought be more of that going forward.


What is added is now up for consideration. To the thirty or so people who regularly read here each week: what would YOU like to see me tackle? Shove a note in the comments, and I’ll seriously consider your suggestions. I know what I’d like to include: technology, current affairs, the occasional review, history and politics. If you have any particular interests, now is the time to voice them.

See, I can do interaction.
