Mighty Blue…


new-dawnSun is shining in the sky

There ain’t a cloud in sight

It’s stopped raining everybody’s in a play

And don’t you know it’s beautiful new day, hey hey…

Before anybody starts to think that my blog has been hacked, or that I am undergoing some serious 1970s form of personality disorder, I can assure you that all is well. Well, all is well in my world, and that is fairly relative.

In the year of our Lord, 2018, on the 21st March at 7.13 in the morning, I am seated at my computer, looking out onto a world that has changed.

My black cat has just disappeared up a tree, a wood pigeon is sitting watching her with cruel indifference, and the skeletal fingers of the night’s frost are receding. Despite the fact that I am to participate in my daily round of mummery (me teaching, me as teacher), I am feeling strangely optimistic; perhaps the drugs, that I failed to take for almost two weeks, have eventually started to kick-in.


Or perhaps the sun is playing its magic upon me.

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.
