Do you ever hear a song or see an artwork or hear a speech which just evokes such an emotional reaction and you just stop and say “wow”, and soak in the beauty and marvel at it and wash it over your skin and drink it down and try to absorb it like a sponge?…… Continue reading talent.
This micro-story was written as a potential idea for an imaginative piece for the HSC. It was quickly abandoned for that purpose, but I haven’t managed to leave it behind entirely. My 5-day trek through the stunning Kunderang gorges served as inspiration, and my ultimate goal has been to capture the wonderful things that I see using…… Continue reading Not Conventionally Useful
Isn’t it strange how medicine keeps people alive until they’re 100 but it can’t make their mind strong until 100 or their bones and their skin strong until 100, and the last 15 years are pretty unpleasant? And you can really see evolution chasing its tail, because we stay alive for so long but our…… Continue reading Run On.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t usually like change. I don’t like the unknown particularly, and I’m definitely too nostalgic to easily release the present into the past. Usually, it’s for the best though. Change is evolution and progression and experience, and if you don’t end up in a better place than before,…… Continue reading After Laughter: Album Review, and a thought on change.
This is the soundtrack to the looming winter and the ticking off of quizzes and assignments, and booking my accommodation in London and skyping my long-distance friends. 10.

Sailing over a bitumen ocean, caught by a wind, the world whips by and whispers as I cut through. Each passed house long asleep, a gentle piano tune is carrying heartbreak in script, volume loud enough to sing along to and pretend the stars a stadium, full, above my windscreen. The sky lights, illuminating each…… Continue reading Eclectic Electric
Creativity is an elusive pursuit, a cocktail of variables whose ingredients are inspiration, talent, and dumb luck. I always boast the wonders of writing whatever comes to mind, completely unedited and completely instinctive (example at Dear Subconscious,). But sometimes writing isn’t the relevant solution for you, or for the situation. Here are the 6 non-writing ways…… Continue reading Picasso Rode a Bike
If you’re new around here, you probably don’t know I love spring. If you’re not new, you definitely know and you’re definitely sick of hearing about it. Either way, spring is finally here after a long and arduous winter. As the weather warms and we shed some layers, it’s time to unveil a new…… Continue reading Spring Playlist:
I’m not sure how I feel about winter. I’ve had almost two decades to deliberate it, but I’m still not sure. I suppose, like most things, it has its positives and negatives, but is generally romanticised so we forget what it’s really like. That way, each year it’s as big a slap in the face…… Continue reading Winter Playlist
April is a month thoroughly blanketed in autumnal charm; If the year were a day, summer would be the daytime and winter the nighttime. If spring is dawn, then autumn is dusk. Or… the restless place in between being awake and being asleep. It’s retirement for the deciduous population. Autumn is the paradise in which…… Continue reading You’ll Never Sink When You Are With Me
