    Broken Wings

    Yeah, I was right. Boxing is a game changer. Talking to different people is a game changer, as is giving yourself to your peers with no desire for reward. Some real truths were vocalized for the first time this morning too, which were previously very much not touched for very good reason. Knowing what you […]

  • Ghost Town

    Ghost Town

    Quite pleased about this, for a lot of reasons, most of which have to do with output and potential future use. It’s been a bit of a stressful day for other reasons, that were resolved in a better way than has previously been the case. So, it all balances out. I’ve also managed to complete […]

    Making Plans for Nigel

    There is a LOT on at the moment and juggling all that I have to do with the time available in which to do so… the stress is manifesting as it always does non my body. There are boils, and skin rashes, and generally this is pushing out bad energy through my skin. Each time […]

  • Respect

    Respect

    I’m pretty certain a food allergy wiped me out on Thursday night/Friday morning, so took a day off after 12 days of exercise on the trot having come to the conclusion that it’s really not viable to be that person without a notional change in approach. Regardless of this 10km happened yesterday and now there […]

  • How Will I Know?

    I have worked my arse off this week, but still got rejected yesterday, because I’m not good enough for the people currently being applied to. How do I get better? I have to do more work, and that’s all there is to it. This is not a big deal, except when I’m tired or there’s […]

    Play the Game

    Some days, you just KNOW something is a good idea. Others take weeks of thought and deliberation, but this was not one of them. Newsletters are a big deal right now, and I need to be making a couple of others on Mailchimp after I’m done here. This one, however, is for the Gamers, of […]

  • Face the Music

    Face the Music

    Not often I make it past 20 likes in the modern world. REALLY pleased with the rebranding image too, and this one will be used on various things going forward. It’s odd, watching things change as they have over the last month. Last January was the first time I’d exercised every day in my life. […]

  • Holiday

    Holiday

    I didn’t post at all for two whole days. Here’s why. https://www.instagram.com/p/B1Bfn4UHDE2/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link There’s been some quite robust discussion in the house over what should happen at weekends. As a result, on Saturday and Sunday nothing was written as part of a plan. I’ve stated in other places that now writing is my job, there is […]

  • Concrete and Clay

    Concrete and Clay

    Yesterday was INCREDIBLY productive. No, REALLY, yesterday was amazeballs. I’d planned to write poetry all next week, expecting a difficult, even painful slog through the prompt, and there’s four poems finished to my left, ready for polish and then early dispatch. This will undoubtedly leave me space to edit my WiP, to do chores and […]

    Yesterday’s Men

    Day 3: My mother in law has gone into hospital. The prognosis, from distance, is not good. She is in her 80’s, and a Cancer survivor. Whatever may now happen in the next few months, her legacy is significant and will be long-lasting. The world she knew at my age, over thirty years ago when I […]
