Poem: Missing

It’s been a while since I posted one of my poems. So, as we have just celebrated 10 years married this year, I thought I would give you one of my first poems about my husband. Missing Away You went Like lint In the Breeze Reach out To grasp And You’re gone You get on…

Is It Ok to Love Again So Swiftly?

I’ve idly noticed that chart topper Taylor Swift has now hooked up with Bond-tipped actor Tom Hiddleston, just a couple of weeks or so since splitting from Calvin Harris. It just reminds me a bit of me, but then again, I was way younger than Swift when I was going through the ‘date someone for…

Win My Art!

The Orlando attacks have not just disgusted me, but have made me question my fellow man. This world is a tiresome, ignorant and dark place at times. In the hope of spreading some light, sunshine and a bit of rainbow coloured solidarity, I am going to give away one of my original art pieces. It…

Nearly the Big 10

Time is drifting ever onwards towards my 10th wedding anniversary. It is mind-boggling how I’ve managed to get to this massive milestone without completely driving my husband round the twist! It has not always been plain sailing – we have had a lot of bumps in the road, pretty much all of them have been…

We emerge from the winter as animals from burrows – awake and alert for the prospect of better times. That isn’t me. I’ve not always gotten…

The Nerdy Coolness of Blog Stats

I do like to have a mooch at the statistics for this blog. Not that I care for traffic, it is more out of interest to see what people are looking at and what country they come from. As I can’t see search terms anymore (cheers Google/Wordpress), I just see what pages have been read…

A Chorus of Crazies

Stephen Fry – actor, writer and national treasure – recently left Twitter, a platform he had been so synonymous with. This decision came in light of the negative attention he drew by making a somewhat droll remark about a winner at the recent Bafta awards. Keyboard warriors in their droves booted off about how mean…

Sending Love to All

I’m getting into the Christmas spirit, or at least, I think it is that. I am always ever so perturbed by the paucity of good will and kindness of spirit extended towards humans by humans. The news daily shows us our errors daily – a mirror held up to us, showing the ugliness we as…

Poem: Seeing Me

You see me Free me By my side And hopelessly Loving me. The energies I have Deep inside of me Are nurtured when You’re holding me. Seek me Be me I just love/hurt In pulses like a heart And I flail in the wind And you guide You protect You strengthen Your soul Of sweet…
