Not Today Again…


Right on schedule. Today has arrived and I have sort of arrived with it. 

I was ill yesterday and spent the afternoon, and all the night, in bed.

However, no matter how much I slept, I still woke up to today. And today is like yesterday. And yesterday was like today.

If you have been reading this procrastination of a blog, you will be shouting at the screen,

“Just get on with it!”

“Hey, I hear y’all.”

Today is full of rain. The fields and roadsides are flooded. Putin has won re-election. Trump is still with us.

My nuts are frozen, too.

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.

  1. Hey, look at the bright side – at least you don’t have to wake up every morning wondering what the idiot in office tweeted NOW. And it only gets more ridiculous every day. Hopefully soon his own party will realize he has to go. Political rant over. Hope you’re feeling better – I’m finally emerging from a 7-day “I don’t know if it was really a cold or just really bad spring allergies” ….
