Should I Strongly Agree or Strongly Disagree?

Am I often suspicious of other people? Is "Finder's keepers" a fair rule? Do I find myself trying to beat my personal achievements? Do people rely on me to fix problems? In games, is winning my main objective? Do I like to stand out in a crowd? Maybe I should remain neutral and see if... Continue Reading →

The Mystery of Strange Magic

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Now that the small talk is over, let's delve into that mysterious magic known as asking questions, which has such a strange effect on the human psyche. When someone asks a question, whether it is directed at you or not, do you feel compelled to answer? Even if you say nothing,... Continue Reading →

SYW: The Heart-Shaped Edition

Do you love me? Why? What is it about me that you love? Why? Please explain your love for me in detail until I'm satisfied with your answer. Will you always love me? Why not? What's wrong with me that you can't love me forever!?! Oh, I see... well, that's not acceptable, change that about... Continue Reading →

Shooting Star Thoughts

Last night I saw a shooting star. I always feel a thrill when I spot one... As I wrote those two previous sentences a thought streaked across my mind's sky and crashed into my post-writer's bubble, popping it - What do you care if I saw a shooting star and felt thrilled by it. Isn't... Continue Reading →

Create With Passion

Do you share your passions with others? Do you share the things, ideas, creations, people, artists, which rouse and arouse you, get your emotional juices flowing, with others or do you keep them to yourself? Do you share some and not others? What makes one source of passion shareable and the other one something to... Continue Reading →

Reading You, Writing You

Why do you read? Why do you write? What inspires you to to read? What motivates you to write? Do you lose yourself or find yourself in words? What are you looking for when you read or write? Once again I'm going to share some posts which sparked a glow within when I read them... Continue Reading →

No Matter How Strange It May Be

This post is... what is a post? Some people call posts - blogs. Which term is the correct one to use? Does it matter as long as you understand what someone is saying when they say it. But that isn't as easy as it seems, is it. I often misunderstand what people are saying. I... Continue Reading →

I Could Destroy You, But I Won’t

The title of this post refers to a conversation I have every now and then with my blog. I have deleted two previous blogs, so it's not an idle threat but a fact - I could delete this blog, but I won't... not yet anyway. Sometimes the urge to destroy my creation is intense. There's... Continue Reading →

SYW: Chi Mi Ama, Mi Segua

Loosely translated it means - those who love me, follow me. It's something my father used to say, usually just after I'd told him that I wasn't going to do whatever it was that he wanted me to do. He loved to use Italian proverbs like playing cards to win a game of human chess.... Continue Reading →

The One Challenge

I thought I'd do this because I can. I'm very grateful that I can do things because I can. For many years I didn't think I could do anything. And the few things I thought I could do, I couldn't do them because I was told not to do them. If I did them anyway,... Continue Reading →

What Do You Collect?

When I was a child my mother decided that I should collect stamps. She bought me an album for the stamps, gave me a whole bunch of pre-collected stamps, and told me to sort out my collection. After that she kept giving me stamps she'd steamed off envelopes, and even pre-ordered special new stamps which... Continue Reading →

Learn Narcissist in 5 Minutes for FREE

So you want to learn Narcissist in 5 minutes for free. Okay. The clock is ticking. Let's do this. But before we go any further I need to answer a few questions. It won't take me more than a kazillion years. Take a seat, shut up and put up with it. No, not on that... Continue Reading →

SYW: I’ll Think Of A Title Later

I can't think of a thing to say. Ah, wait, false alarm. Phew! You were almost spared the pleasure of another one of my posts. Or something like that. I thought I'd do three challenges in one. Plus one from me to myself - I'm going to attempt to give straightforward/short answers. Challenge #1 comes... Continue Reading →

Is Blogging Better Than Sex?

Yes, of course it is! And if you tell me that I only think it is because I haven't had sex with you... that's a good point! I can't argue with that. Rory of A Guy Called Bloke and K9 Doodlepip has been doing a very interesting (for bloggers anyway, sorry non-bloggers) series, and, in... Continue Reading →

9 Things I’ll Do in My Next Life

I've been creatively challenged to do something I'm really not good at doing at all - making plans. I've tried, tried and tried again, and I'm still waiting for that moment when I succeed at it after all that practice. This creative challenge comes from The Reverist of Riddles & Reveries, where he writes beautifully... Continue Reading →

The Ultimate How To Upset Bloggers Guide

I'm just clickbaiting. This isn't a how to upset bloggers guide. But if you did visit this post for that and you really want to know how to do it - do what you normally do which upsets people and voila! So why the title? Well, yesterday I had an interesting comment-chat with Rory on... Continue Reading →

What Makes You Laugh?

Have you ever wondered who was the very first person to laugh. How did it happen. Did the early humans laugh. And if they did laugh was it because they found something funny or was it a primal survival skill which had nothing to do with humour. Was laughter used as a warning like a... Continue Reading →

What Should I Write About?

The title of this post has a story attached to it. It has several stories attached to it. Do I tell them all, just tell one of them or talk about something else altogether? If you'd like to make a suggestion about what I should write about in a post, please feel free to share... Continue Reading →

What’s a Biggest Lie?

If you know what a "biggest lie" is, please let me know as I've just spent more than an hour trying to figure out what it is. It has been both interesting and frustrating trying to figure it out. Of course I ended up on Wikipedia reading the extensive list of types of lie which... Continue Reading →

A Soul Seeking Safety in a Land of Psychological Explosions

Have you ever been stalked by an issue. Found your attention repeatedly drawn to a subject. Everything you see, read, hear, seems to be conspiring to get you to focus on it. It won't let you ignore it. You can't get away from it. This past week the subject of depression keeps cropping up in... Continue Reading →

The Tell A Story Challenge

A few days ago Pensitivity challenged me to write a story to go with an image. Now it's my turn to challenge others to do the same. After a bit of investigative work, I've found the source of this challenge - The Eclectic Contrarian: Tell The Story Challenge - which means I now know the... Continue Reading →

SYW: Scared money can’t win and a worried man can’t love

I thought I'd mix things up a little and combine two writing challenges in one post, since in my mind they go together as they're both asking provocative questions. Things will probably get messy... One challenge comes from Fandango of This That And The Other in his latest Fandango's Provocative Question #10 This is his... Continue Reading →

Best Guess For This Image: Feeling Wrecked

I've been challenged, by the wonderfully creative Pensitivity, to write a story or a poem to go with the featured image of this post. There were actually two images to choose from - to see the other one you'll have to click and visit Pensitivity: Missed the vital bit........ I picked the one with the... Continue Reading →

It All Depends On How You Use It

See that man, the one pointing his finger at you, looking at you with a steely-eyed gaze, challenging you with his style, his expression, his attitude, his words. What impression is he making upon you? He has quite an ego, doesn't he. Does his ego provoke your ego? Do you want to agree with him... Continue Reading →

By The Power of Capercorn

The moment I saw it I loved it. But why? What was it about it which inspired me to feel for it? Why did I love it? It... is the image which is the feature of this post. It... is by Kira. What do you see when you look at it? I see the zodiac... Continue Reading →

Meditations on Realities

Have you ever woken up and not known where you were. Drawn a blank when someone asked your name. Been unable to recall a word which you use every day. Have you ever lost yourself in a book, the reality within the pages becoming more real to you than the one outside. Have you ever... Continue Reading →

Careless Talk

I was going to say nothing, but in the last hour things have changed. However, is it a struggle? It is bothersome and it does make me wish I had the ability to electrically zap people... but if I had that kind of power, would I really use it? There's this conundrum which presents itself...

Mystery Blogger Award:

At first I thought it was me, it had to be me, it's usually me, but then I realised that it wasn't me at all it was you. WordPress, it's you, and you seem to be glitching out more than usual. Perhaps you shouldn't have changed your colours. I know the new outfit is bright,... Continue Reading →

SYW: I Give You Permission To Read This Post

The title of this post is quite arrogant, isn't it. It's based on a line said by a character in a TV show to another character which was: "I give you permission to like me". At first I reacted to hearing it as I think viewers were supposed to react, with eye roll at the... Continue Reading →
