Facing Fear

I saw a beautiful thing on the Internet: a boy who has been blind since the age of two skateboarding. Now I have been on a skateboard, as a teenager, aided by my best friend who thought everyone could stand on a thin plank of plyboard on wobbly wheels at the top of a hill... Continue Reading →

Getting My Head Straight

I've had a little wobble psychologically but my head is back on track now but I have so much that I could write about!  (And, unfortunately, you can be sure that it involves knitting).  Anyway, for the time being, I'm going to catch up with an award that the very lovely Emily over at My...

A Day of Battle and of Bravery

~ Trigger Alert ~ It's funny how I try to move on so fast, I try to block or forget as soon as possible, perhaps to give me the strength and focus to deal with the immediate presence.  I'm also not entirely convinced that you want to hear tales of non-events in my insignificant and...

Working Out

I’m not entirely convinced that ‘working out’ has the right connotation.  It’s a fairly positive term, indicating a deliberate choice to develop something through to resolution, that is to say, a successful outcome.

A Visit to the Dentist

I don't like the dentist.  It's not personal.  It's not the person after all but their job.  Though why they'd want a job like that I don't know, hated by everyone, torturing poor innocent people day in, day out.  Maybe the Inquisition isn't recruiting at the moment.  In a moment of reckless abandon, I might...

Overrun

I don't know if you've ever slept in a tent before.  Tents seem to be a bit like Marmite for dividing people, you either take to camping like a duck to water (and mud) or think it's a slow, cold, dirty, torturous death.  I like camping.  But sleeping in a tent does a weird thing...
