Are you up for a challenge?

This is just a quickie post... In fact it's such a quickie shorty for me that my WordPress editor doesn't know what to make of it. So, here's my challenge to you: Have you ever been ignored? Have you ever ignored someone? If you're human, chances are, your answer will be "Yes" to both. I... Continue Reading →

Excuses Reasons Explanations and Dangerous Situations

What made you stop to read this line of this post? Was it the title? Was it that you spotted a question? Do you like questions? Do questions make you stop to read... or is it that they make you pause to think? Yesterday afternoon I finally got around to doing something which had been... Continue Reading →

Thinking After You Speak

Are you careful about what you say? Do you think before you speak? Do you think so much before you speak, afraid to say the wrong thing, that you end up not saying anything at all? Do you take advice to keep your mouth shut from people who don't follow their own advice? Here's a... Continue Reading →

And the Mortal Moral of the Story is…

The people who sold you their morals are mortal and will die, leaving you holding the baby. They're dead now. But that's not as bad as it seems, for them anyway, for you... The baby didn't belong to them, and since they're dead they can't tell you where they got it from... haven't checked... Continue Reading →

Hidden Tensions

Hmm. We're having trouble finding that site. Updating failed. Try again later. We can't connect to the server... he's fed up of serving you, carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders, so he dropped it and just walked away leaving a trail of devastation in his wake. And boom! The Wifi world which... Continue Reading →

SYW: Do you suffer from freckles?

Red Hair Is…

Apparently a reason to follow me on Twitter. A reason to ask me if the carpet matches the curtains. A reason to touch my hair while I walk passed you in the street. A reason to call me the spawn of the devil. A reason to fear me for my fiery temper. Do all redheads... Continue Reading →

Making Breaking Wishing Waiting… Taking Stock

Have you ever had one of those moments when you get incredibly angry over something ridiculous and you know it's ridiculous of you to be getting incredibly angry over it? Have you ever had one of those moments when you don't know what I'm talking about or why I'm talking about it? I have those... Continue Reading →

What You Do Online Leaves Traces

Before I started blogging, I was a browser, surfer, lurker, searcher seeking, looking for answers, solutions, ideas, distractions online. The bookmarks I collected grew so plentiful that it would take what felt like an age to scroll and find where I wanted to revisit. Every now and then I would try to tidy up my... Continue Reading →

How Do You Deal With Pain?

Pain comes in many forms, shapes, sizes, and... people. Every person you see, meet, bump into on the street or online is in pain, has been in pain, will be in pain. Pain is everywhere and in everything. When I was going through a particularly overly sensitive period, I used to avoid the section in... Continue Reading →

I Have Lived Neither Intelligently Nor Wisely

Intelligence and Wisdom walked into a bar, they were seeking Knowledge, but she wasn't there. She blew them off to go on a date with Foolishness because he was fun and life is too short to spend time with bores. However Ego was there as usual, buying everyone drinks, up to his old tricks which... Continue Reading →

The People Who Drive Us Crazy

Think of something which drives you crazy. Is that something which drives you crazy a something which someone else does? Are there certain people who drive you crazy? Is one of those certain people you? I'm already crazy... but even though I'm already at that particular destination, there are still certain somethings and certain people... Continue Reading →

SYW: I refuse to answer that question…

Imagine that you're almost at the end of a job interview and things have been going rather well, all the questions have been answered with professional expertise, the other person seems... Well, that's just it, that's what's bothering you... What if they're not who they seem to be? The interviewee has answered all the questions... Continue Reading →

Repost: Stop Kicking the You Who You are Now because of the You Whom You Once Were

This post is from November 2013. Since Mercury has gone retrograde, and I had nothing new to say today, I thought I'd have a look at what I'd posted at this time in a past year. I'm never certain if I'll like or hate my old posts when I reread them. Lately I've been surprised... Continue Reading →

Why I’m Not Invited to Play With Other Children

To celebrate transiting Mercury going retrograde in Sagittarius, I thought I'd do a bit of a review, a retrospective, remember, recall, and perhaps have a rethink of experiences and issues connected to that other centaur, Chiron. You are invited to join me and play along with me... I know I'm a tad on the strange... Continue Reading →

Losing Sight of the Fact that We are People

When you read a post on a blog, an article in the news, a book, a tweet, or look at the cover of a glamour magazine, browse Instagram, Facebook, watch a video, TV or a film, do you see people? When you look in the mirror, or at a photo of yourself, do you see... Continue Reading →

Reblog: How to have a couple of unexpected health related stories — nobodysreadingme

The first one comes from 2017, but somehow slipped under my radar. In China, apparently, if you’re constipated, a traditional folk remedy is to insert an eel into your anus. This seems a bit radical to me, but what do I know? Any road up, some 49 year old lamebrain in the Baiyun District […]... Continue Reading →

SYW: Sometimes you can’t hear me (it’s because sometimes I’m in parentheses)

Okay, maybe it's because I'm only talking to you in my head. Or because you're ignoring me, desperately trying not to hear me or even see me... was it something I said or didn't say? Or because there's so much chatter going on in your head that you can't hear anyone outside of your head.... Continue Reading →

A Good Friend Will…

Let you fall asleep in the middle of a game while snuggling a purring cat, gently wake you a couple of hours later to suggest you go to bed, but when you groggily whisper "I'm happy here", will leave you to sleep on the sofa but also put a freshly filled hot water bottle in... Continue Reading →

Two Narcissists in a Relationship? – a personal story

I was recently asked about how two narcissists ended up together. The two narcissists in question are my father and my mother... How did they hook up? What made them decide to turn that hooking up into a marriage? If one narcissist needs the world to revolve around him/her, how on earth could having two... Continue Reading →

Good Post, Bad Post, Old Post, New Post, Just Write Post

So, what do you think makes a good post on your blog? Do you have a favourite? What do you prefer to write about? What do you like to read on other people’s blogs (or mine)? What attracts you to follow a blogger? The above questions aren't mine, they're from Pensitivity101: What Makes a 'Good... Continue Reading →

Repost: How To Play The Narcissist’s Game

A quick (it's not going to be quick) intro: This is one of the top posts on my blog. Yesterday evening I decided to re-read it. This morning I decided to repost it. Why? I am surprised by how good it is. That might sound strange, but I am a strange person. I am partly... Continue Reading →

The Liebster Award 2018 – Discover New Blogs

Do you enjoy letting other people know that you like them? Do you tell people when something they've done has inspired you? Do you love discovering new things, places, and people?

SYW: Show me a sane man and I will cure him for you

Would I really do that? No, not deliberately. Okay, maybe a little bit deliberately if his or her sanity was driving me nuts, inspiring in me a homicidal hankering, and it was the only way to make them go away so that I didn't get put away for... y'know, nudge nudge, wink wink. My Machiavellian... Continue Reading →

Repost: A Happy Place

Do you have a happy place? Do you let others into your happy place? Is your happy place a space outside of you or is it a place inside of you? Is your happy place a person? This is a repost of a post I published in October 2015 which was titled -  A Secret... Continue Reading →

Q and A: The real question is not whether machines think but whether men do

Do you like questioning answers? Do you enjoy answering questions? Do you get a kick out of questioning questions and answering answers? If you do this post is... well, it's something, still haven't decided what kind of something it is, what kind of something do you think it is? “The real question is not whether... Continue Reading →

Spirit of the Flame

I heard a loud bang, and then saw tiny vibrant sparkles flickering behind the dense branches of the trees in the woods beyond the fields. They were there for an instant, and then they were gone. As Kristian, of Tales From the Mind of Kristian, mentioned in his Word of the Day Challenge: Bonfire... It's... Continue Reading →
