My New Friends

I often sit out on my balcony to have my morning coffee, and water the few pots that I have. I realised it had been a few days since I’d watered any of my plants, with Bill’s daisies looking very limp. I have a basil plant too, which if you’ve ever grown basil you will […]

I’m back… again.

Afternoon All! After a very long hiatus in blogging, I’ve decided once again that I should begin channeling my energies thusward by way of keeping my hand in the creative writing pot.

My Shadow

I just had to write this. I’m feeling deeply saddened by what’s happened in Boston, and the tragedy that happens all over the world every day that does not make the news and get spoken about. We are all responsible for the our beliefs about the world, we are all culpable, and we are all […]
