Buckle in for a ride through the previous 6 months of my life

April 19, 2017


I’ve not written on here in 5 months. Truth be told, i’ve not been able to write. You ever slip into a black hole, grateful to breathe? This hasn’t been depression in the classic sense. Let’s imagine a shallower, shadier breeze that lurks in the shadows. But sure, you can feel a gust from time to time. But you […]

The Waiting Game

October 29, 2016


You’re my perfect guy and i’m your perfect girl. At least, that’s what i’m sure you’d be thinking after seeing the dash of dried soy sauce on my chin and nose like I noticed just now in the mirror. Look at me – the audacity! It was just one kiss, and now we are moving […]

Are we better off single (and is that fear or wisdom talking)

June 15, 2016


Do you ever get to a really good place when you’re single and think, ‘Ahhh this is actually really good!’ Do you ever wander if perhaps your life would be less turbulent and stressful if you just stayed single? I do. Quite a lot actually. There’s so much quest for ‘the one’ or that perfect […]

Why it’s called Falling…(in love)

Talking to Blackheath, my friend in recovery who was feeling sorry for himself the other day after relapsing, I suggested he needs to do whatever it takes to understand where the need to self destruct from, and then do everything in his power to find a new thing that makes him feel those thrills. He thought […]

A soulful home: where the heart is?

May 25, 2015


John Bradshaw says in his book ‘Creating Love’ that you need to make a soulful home to create happiness and love within. I think I really know what he’s talking about. This last year, i’ve been on the biggest adventure. Not the biggest of my life, but one of many which contributes to the whole, the biggest of […]

The link between loneliness and writing

May 24, 2015


There’s something intoxicating about the thought of being in a man’s arms, nestled in the cracks and crevices. Cocoon-like. In the womb. Being busy is great, it means thoughts are fleeting. Often temporary. Or less overwhelming. I dunno. But then when you get caught resting in your own spare room whilst you have Airbnb guests […]
