Happy Halloween. Not!


What’s to be happy about? It’s the Day of the Dead and being dead is not going to be much fun unless you are part of the living dead which leads back to my point; it’s not going to be happy. 

If there are happy dead out there, roaming the streets and gardens of ordinary suburbia, then I am a little hesitant to wish anybody happiness of this dead day.

However, my tracks have just been stopped by the very real realisation that the dead may only be creatures suffering from some particular issue that relates to the way modern society decides to lead its life.

I want to raise awareness for this as I may be suffering from the same condition.

This morning when you climb out of bed, after a pumpkin-loaded belly laugh of an eve, check yourself. Are any early signs of necrosis setting in? Do you crave blood? Does your wife look particularly tasty this morning? Whose is that unknown head in the bed?

If the answer to all of the above (or three of the above) is yes, I salute you.



Happy Halloween.

This is the story of what happened to me when anxiety took a grip. I lost my senses, I lost my job, and I lost me. I then turned to writing to find those things that had gone missing. How can you teach when you believe that education is a business that is failing in its primary remit of helping to create a better society? Indeed, how can you teach when you believe that you have nothing of value to pass on? The book/blog is the story of my recovery from the absolute darkness of the early days. It is an Odyssey through my life over the last twelve months and a retracing of my steps to discover how I found myself there. More than all of that, it is a re-evaluation and a rejoicing of all that which I call life. Happy reading and I hope it helps. There is madness, Everyday Madness, and not all of it comes from within.
