A Simple Kiss

I miss the smell of your perfume Lingering Lingering with me Reminding me Reminding me that somewhere in this savage land Someone loves me Loves me Have we forgotten Forgotten how to be romantic? Sick with puppy-love I want to return Return to the warmth of your embrace. Are you waiting for my return? I return, We talk of things …

Questions

Where did it all begin? Where will it end? What happened in the middle?

What Part?

If all the world’s a stage, what part am I playing? The puppet? The pirate? The poet? The pauper? The pawn or the king? Or indeed the fool? I want to be the knight in shining armor dashing forth from my castle keep to slay dragons. What dragons shall I slay today? My bills? My meals? My car? My contracts? …

Out-of-Focus Man

I was Robin Williams in Deconstructing Harry today, out of focus man. It was just one of those days were I never quite seemed to get in gear. The highlight of my day was meeting Jenny for panini’s and coffee at the Border’s bookshop in Leicester.

Being Present

I feel like I’ve been busy being present and by being present I haven’t thought about all the things I’ve been setting up to do in the future and now when I sit and reflect I feel like there’s so much I need to be doing that I haven’t done. How do you get around that? Because I must say …

Sleeping Willow

I’ve been…I don’t know where I’ve been. Where ever I’ve been, it hasn’t been on this keyboard like I should be. To be fair, I have been writing a character biography which is just over 5 pages long. I have two characters, but no story and I’m not sure which character is the main character. There’s a young lady and …

Embrace the Chaos

I started French Lessons last night. I was a bit disappointed because only one other student turned up and the teacher or tutor was quite evidently not used to leading a class. I want to learn conversational French. This cat started off teaching us grammar which is absolutely boring, or rather, he made it very boring. I had to stop …

Jitters

I start my new contract today. I have the pre-game jitters as I always do before a new project. I am feeling a bit time starved at the moment. Time seems to be speeding by faster than I get things done. I have to remind myself that all I can do is what I can do in a day.

Cacophony of Emotions

The cacophony of my emotions has created a great buzz in my head. I am over excited, almost to the point of stunned confusion – like a white hot poker in my mind’s eye. I secured a nice coaching contract that’ll take me through the next couple of months. I attended the Inland Revenue workshop on becoming self-employed and I …

Premonition on the River’s Edge

The world is closing i cannot see the sky. Trapped like the wings of a Cabbage White between the thumbs and grubby paws of the little blonde tyrants kicking around in the grass fields. Gird up your loins like a man, things will work out fine The Shadow lingers over watching… waiting for me to falter, like the panther, dark …

Back at It

This is the last day of my holiday. It’s been nice sitting around generally relaxing, but now it’s time to get busy.

Happy New Year

I’m in Bristol sitting in the conservatory watching the world wake up (well my little part of the world anyway) to a brand new year. I love the optimism of the new…so much promise…so much hope and good will. Let us set sail into the unknown and make 2005 a year to be remembered…a year that when we’re 85 we’ll …
