Alarmingly Calm…

Have you ever... Freaked yourself out because you were not freaking out? Worried because you were not worried? Had anxiety about not being anxious?

What type of people are you most attracted to now?

. Change is a natural part of life. Sometimes it is for the better, sometimes for the worse, sometimes its ambiguous and we're not really sure whether it's good or bad or neutral.

No Worries…

. . “You know that feeling at the end of the day, when the anxiety of that-which-I-must-do falls away and, for maybe the first time that day, you see, with some clarity, the people you love and the ways you have, during that day, slightly ignored them, turned away from them to get back to...

Saving it for a Brainy Day…

Are you a thinker? Everyone is, we all think therefore we are all thinkers. So that question is easy to answer.

The Debauch – Waters of Delusion, Clouds of Intoxication…

. . There are things which I used to do, which I no longer do. . And there are things which I do now, which I did not used to do. . Have I changed? .

The Pitter Patter of Cloven Hooves

Okay, sheep have hooves, not cloven ones, but being woken up long before it was my time to wake up by the pitter patter of rebel escapist sheep hooves making their way loudly past my window onto the busy road close by... Meaning that, unless I'm completely heartless and irresponsible, I'd have to leap out... Continue Reading →

Are you as surprised as I am that I’m the only one here behaving myself?

"Are you as surprised as I am that I'm the only one here behaving myself?"  ― Charles Vane, Black Sails I’ve been feeling so mellow at the moment that I almost don’t recognise myself.

What is Genius?

You know this quote. This quote is iconic. This quote has been doing the rounds since it was first quoted and heard. It's a very clever quote. It's inspiring! But why?

Esmeralda the Snake

snake by joie   Esmeralda has a story to tell, but she can’t tell it herself because she is wrapped in the arms of transformation, the likes of which she has never before experienced, and it has stolen her words away.

Tetchycal Difficulties

I woke up in a tetchy mood this morning. My jaw and face were aching because I was grinding and clenching my teeth in my sleep harder than usual. I had a bad dream. My worst dreams, the ones I consider nightmares, are not ones which frighten me, but those which frustrate me. In this... Continue Reading →

The Devil is in the Dictionary

A while ago I happened upon a tome of delicious delight - The Devil's Dictionary by Ambrose Bierce. "The Devil's Dictionary is a satirical "reference" book written by Ambrose Bierce.

I was roaming aimlessly through the television guide late last night and happened upon a show I had never heard of, so I tried it out. It was called Big Rich Texas.
