New Years Eve

Tonight the world is celebrating, revelling in the possibilities of new beginnings and fresh opportunities. Masses of people will dance in the street and look on in awe as Colourful Fireworks rain down in cities across the globe. But for me, this annual excitement is over shadowed by the haunting realisation that while New York... Continue Reading →

My Favourite Christmas Things

I have decided to jump on the festive bandwagon and at least TRY and be excited about the impending holiday known of fondly in most circles as Christmas. Rather than harping on about the drudgeries such as gift wrap fails, preparing seating arrangements so that Uncle Dave and Uncle Gav don’t have another beer fueled... Continue Reading →

The Season Of Now

I found this in the "notes" on my phone, I wrote it half a year ago when it was winter and I felt depression creeping back, most of my readers are northern hemisphere dwellers so it may be more relatable for you guys now anyway. I can't remember if I have already shared it on... Continue Reading →

The magazine covers feature wondrous festive scenes, with platters of exotic meats, homemade... Continue Reading →

Seizing Opportunities

I have had a few opportunities knock on my door recently but I have been unable to answer.
