Cappy Birthday Thoughts

Today is my birthday, and I'm saturning 49. I don't have too many thoughts about being 49 specifically, and being in my 50th year on planet Earth. (I have enjoyed being in my 40's, it's the best decade yet! But I have no idea if I'm doing my 40's as the 40's are supposed to... Continue Reading →

Narcie The Narcissist… is a bit Embarrassed

I was going to do a not-a-Narcie post today, but... as you can see I did a Narcie post. Like a typical Narcissist, Narcie is taking over my blog... while protesting that she is not doing any such thing. I must be mistaken. She doesn't mean to be invasive, that's just her way... you wouldn't... Continue Reading →

Narcie The Narcissist on January 1st 2018

January 1st is always a bit of a strange day. The first week of a new year can feel surreal. If you've ever lived with a narcissist, every day of every year can feel strange and surreal.

Have a Happy New Year everyone! These days I quite like this time of year. I don't do very much, just chill at home doing sweet FA. When I was younger, and forced to spend X-mas and New Year with my parents, or later on just with my mother because the royal We was not... Continue Reading →

Introducing Narcie The Narcissist

I don't always do everything I say that I'm going to do, however sometimes I do... and this is one of those sometimes I do times. In a recent post (this one: Are We Nearly There Yet? ) I mentioned that I had an idea for a drawing series and that I would reveal more... Continue Reading →

Are We Nearly There Yet?

I don't know if you've noticed... if you haven't I'm going to point a finger at it and shout: Look, look, LOOK! I've changed my blog's theme... it may take awhile for me to sort out the mess which this is causing, as I have to get used to how this theme works (and doesn't... Continue Reading →

Decompartmentalising Yourself

I was having a conversation yesterday evening which began in the compartment of work/business and slowly crossed lines into other compartments until it ended up in the deeply personal and intensely private (mine, not someone else's because that's not my boundary to cross).

It’s Like Nothing I do Makes a Difference

The title of this post - It's Like Nothing I do Makes a Difference - comes from something I jotted down on a pad I have on my desk for jotting somethings down...

Neurophilosophy by Scott Williams – clinical therapist, life learner, storyteller

My wife and I had an argument. It took me some time to realize that I had absolutely no idea what she was talking about.
