Skype Call

We talked on skype which was quite nice although it really wasn’t the same. it made me realise you’ll visit but you’ll never quite be back. and we’re doing good things and growing into adulthood’s big shoes, but all the world is sand and every situation rushes through my fingers and from my grasp. you…… Continue reading Skype Call

Not a Business Person

I say ‘sitting, looking at a blank page and waiting for inspiration doesn’t work’. And I believe it, even though I still do it. You just have to get something, anything, down. The first thing that comes to mind. That’s what I’m doing. I probably don’t need to explain myself every time. People know what’s…… Continue reading Not a Business Person

A Stone Staircase

If the world isn’t flat, maybe it has steps and if everyone is making their way up and down the steps then one person’s triumphant step up is another’s stumble down. so when a person trips, and slides to their rock bottom, it may be higher or lower than another’s rock bottom. one person’s suffering…… Continue reading A Stone Staircase

Dear, 365 Days

Write yourself a letter and post some perspective. Write to yourself in a year’s time, and don’t look at it again until that time. Share your thoughts and ideas, and you’ll be able to reflect on that progress or lack thereof. Most of all, I recommend mentioning what’s stressing you now. More than likely, in…… Continue reading Dear, 365 Days

It…… Continue reading Advice: The Good and The Bad

How to Fail, then Pass

Tri 2 was a disaster. You know that moment every kid has when they’re like 11, and they realise that everybody else has a mind and a situation and a whole life, and each person is just a tiny part of a huge machine and nobody is all that important individually? Despite that, you can’t…… Continue reading How to Fail, then Pass

Night Owl, Early Bird

When your to do list yearns to see the sun wake the world and feel the crisp chill of the morning air, and simultaneously aches to skip to the star strewn late night sky, driving into a dark horizon with the windows down, you face the decision between a late night and an early start.…… Continue reading Night Owl, Early Bird

Hive Mind: Save the Bees

Let’s talk about bees. Bees are a vital part of our environment, and a link in a chain we’re wearing away, but haven’t yet broken. The environment isn’t delicate – it withstands flood and drought and fire and disease. The world is not delicate – it is robust and resilient. It is humanity which falls…… Continue reading Hive Mind: Save the Bees
