REALISTIC INBETWEEN

Writing is a way of talking, uninterrupted. The irony is, I typed out those words, then immediately got interrupted LOL! [It was my kids arriving back from swimming with their Grandma] But six HOURS later I'm back, and I'm 'on it'-finally writing... Continue Reading →

**TW. LUCKY

Here is an extract from an email I just wrote to my psychologist. I often email her for therapeutic purposes. Whilst it's against her therapeutic boundaries to reply, she's happy for me to continue to write as she knows writing helps... Continue Reading →

REAL LIFE?

Has anyone seen real life? I think I must have mislaid it down the back of the sofa or something, because I can't for the life of me locate real life. Real life has become unreal chaos. I am busy. Not... Continue Reading →

LIVING, WRITING, FEARING   

Apprehension is something we all feel from time to time and is completely natural and human. Usually though we are only apprehensive about stuff that really matters to us. Things that we're not bothered about we don't tend to feel apprehension... Continue Reading →

IS A CAREER POSSIBLE IF I BLOG?

I have put off writing this blog post. It isn't really like me to procrastinate over anything actually so it is always strange when this type of situation arises. If I avoid writing about something it can be for a... Continue Reading →

LONELINESS: THE QUIETEST EXPOSION

Loneliness is the quietest explosion you'll ever [not] hear It explodes peacefully in never-ending waves; breaking against the shoreline of our hearts There is no sound of exploding on the outside The sound is all on the inside We are alone and... Continue Reading →

HOME AT SEA

I'm a cerebral person who very much lives in my head, rather than on terra firma. Of all the characteristics of my very weird quirky personality, one word I simply cannot apply is the adjective "grounded". I am absolutely as ungrounded as you... Continue Reading →

WATER ON CHALK

Gymnasts can't do those amazing things they do on the bars without chalk on their hands. Their hands will slip. They will lose their grip. They may even fall to the ground and do themselves an injury. Gymnasts are not... Continue Reading →

LOTS OF LEMONS

Life is currently uncomfortable. It always is, to some degree, at least some of the time. Sometimes it is really uncomfortable all of the time, and other times it is mildly uncomfortable, bits of the time. Happiness is nothing else but... Continue Reading →

MOMENT TO MOMENT

I haven't been in the usual routine today. Why? It is un-seasonally hot in England today. Ergo my fellow tiny island dwellers, including me, go bonkers. We are not accustomed to such high temperatures, especially in the coastal bit I live... Continue Reading →

COFFEE & COMFORTS

This is a 'where I'm at' post. Because I'm not entirely sure quite where I am, so am hoping the writing process will allow me to grasp the nettle and see my way through the fog, and all equivalent metaphorical jazz.... Continue Reading →

HOMESICK

I am grateful to have this holiday. I am also simultaneously missing home and the people I have back at home quite a lot. Holidays fulfil my wanderlust desires. But they also make me appreciate what I have the other... Continue Reading →

DOUBLE-BOLTED

It is early June 2015. I am almost 34. I have written my note to my husband (which I still have in my crisis keepsake box) and I am leaving my usual acute ward, en route to a city ward.... Continue Reading →

CALL ME SIMPLE 

I keep it simple in many ways. Despite the complexity of my analytical intellectual mind, I live in a unusually simple way in my daily lifestyle.  I don't just photograph my food for Instagram. Call me simple but I prefer... Continue Reading →

HighLIGHTS

Another blank screen with more stuff for me to throw at it. I'm not sure how I feel...hopefully writing will illuminate me. (Unless white noise is the thing I'm feeling. I'm not quite sure yet.) I'm sat enjoying a beautiful... Continue Reading →
