Life is suffering…

Or, what was probably meant by the sentence is that life is not quite everything that we wish it to be. The fact that we are alive, sitting on a rock that supports life when there are not any more such rocks within the known universe, tells us something about luck. Just because we are...

Learning to Loathe…

It is to be expected when a being reaches the age that I'm at now. You can't carry on hoping that there will be a happy ending waiting to happen to everybody. Come to think of it, I don't want a happy conclusion to this struggle of a life to be shared by everyone. There... Continue Reading →

Life is but a walking shadow…

I have been spending the last few months trying to settle on a story for my next enterprise. I have happened on a few ideas, but they tend to fade with the coming of the daylight. Think and think and think again, but to no avail. The last two books I have completed have not... Continue Reading →

All Structure is Retrofitted…

This is my first day of the rest of my life.  I thought I may as well have it before it’s too late. I can remember fifteen years ago and being in the preliminary stages of realisation of the years that I was collecting. My footballing skills had most definitely waned and I started to...

Some words From Way Back…

I wanted to be a writer. I wanted the freedom of thought that would allow me to create my own kingdoms and to find my own treasures. I wanted another life from the one that I have now. Teaching is a job, not a life. So, I set about the task of teaching myself how... Continue Reading →

Kick Against The System…

I called her Claudette. She was straightforward, confusing, quirky and not too fast on the uptake. She was a strange choice yet she had something about her that made me smile. Claudette It was said that the car was unencumbered by an excess of power. The simple act of putting the pedal to the mettle... Continue Reading →
