Recalibrate

So, in an attempt to fit all my various projects, responsibilities and ideas into the measly 24 hours of each day (bad design that, there should be at least another two or three hours I reckon) I am going to try to break with tradition and write my blog posts in the day. When I…

Cast off

So, I have got to the point where I’ve changed the tagline on this blog. It used to be craft orientated but let’s be honest guys, that is falling by the wayside isn’t it? And I’ve gone into art, life, Parkinson’s,… Everything really. So, the tagline has changed to reflect it. I expected to feel…

Seize up

so, I watched an amazing program this evening on iPlayer. It was about a very cool woman called rowena and how she was deciding whether or not to have a bucket list having found out she had terminal cancer. Was it really came down to was how important it is to experience life rather than…

Kindness

I mentioned a little while ago that things have not been the most cheerful around here. Well, here a post that is full of happy. As you know, I am away from Stitch Towers visiting my sister. Anyway, in a rare moment of clarity, I booked into a hotel because then I could leave the…

Process

How do you start a post? I normally go with a picture tbh rather than a thought, or action, or event. Today I scrolled thru my recent sketches and found this one…no reason, no forethought, no purpose. Just a picture, a gesture in a moment. And that’s why I love it. It was me…where I…

Colour

Half way thru 2014 and life has more colour than ever…

Push:Pull

I’m in a funny place at the moment. Funny weird, not funny haha. Unfortunately. I’m finding that my status is changing. I’m becoming a ‘disabled’ person, guys. People wait for me. People hold the door for me. People are kind. I’m not always good with kind, even though it is well meant. It’s very hard….

New

Thinking about how, once you make a change it can become inconceivable that you could ever go back. My life is unrecognisable to when I started this blog and is can’t ever imagine reverting. Ever. How to define rebirth ? A big question given short shrift By me And others who should be enlarging this…

Give way

When you give way do you give up? Is this journey always to be pitched At an angle so steep That my blood hammers hard And I drop and I swoop Ever down There are lights on the way Chinks of bright Glowing white But they fade as you try to hold on They are…

Blowing in the wind

…and it is. Blowing. I am sitting outside the boys’ room in Brixham listening to a gale outside and gentle breathing inside. Elder hasn’t slept well and I’m wide awake. So I thought I’d pop in and say hello. Hello. I’ve been doing the customary year end reflections recently. As you do. It’s been a…
