Stoic Where The Sun Don’t Shine…

But I can still take it…

Read After Burnout

images-30It’s just a tiny complaint, but one that one ought not to make:

The sun never shines and the rain it does fall

My sense of well being don’t feel ten foot tall. 

I looked at the weather forecast this morning and it informed me, rather smugly if you ask me, that the temperatures would drop as much as the precipitation. Rain or snow the winter won’t go.

My wife told me to stop complaining. I didn’t know that I was. I thought that I was just observing. And my observations were set on fact. Fact it was not.

“Stop feeling so miserable,” she said. “You’re always complaining about the weather.”

I went to work. It rained. I came home and it continued to rain.

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.
