The Great Indoors

As you down your vitamin D tablets like the sun-loving junkie that you are, perhaps with the other hand you could do something  a little bit more pleasurable (not like that), during these unprecedented times we find ourselves in. Below, from the fluffy fun depths of my mind, I share with you just some ofContinue reading “The Great Indoors”

Too Narrow-visioned

For some of us, life revolves around a career, for others it’s family. But should life really have a sole focus? Is it wrong to lead an existence where we strive for one thing and neglect another? Benefit in one area of our life  to the detriment of another? Need we only look at theContinue reading “Too Narrow-visioned”

Being Called A C*nt By A Stranger

It’s not everyday that you can indulge in the luxury of having off-the-cuff profanities spat at you on a public street whilst on your daily commute home from work. So given that exactly this unfolded this very evening makes me really want to count my lucky stars and thank God for all of the sociallyContinue reading “Being Called A C*nt By A Stranger”

The Arrival…..

From the Coronavirus to Storm Ciara, it feels like judgement day has well and truly arrived. I helped an old lady cross the road last week, so for that alone I’m sure Jesus will bless me with the golden ticket straight up the squeaky escalator to Heaven and by doing so ensure that the fieryContinue reading “The Arrival…..”

A Poem About Love

Love. Imaginary, or a force of nature? Like the idea of ‘consciousness’. Are they both just falsehoods, Or truly realities experienced by those favoured?   Love. As comforting as a hot bowl of soup, On a cold frosty evening. In its absence we are all but, Lost souls, floating on rafts destined for sinking.  Continue reading “A Poem About Love”

The Gym – Satan’s Second Home

Not much of the athletic type, the only way you’ll get me running is in the opposite direction from you if you start going into a long-winded spiel about the weather or how you’re deeply madly in love with your cousin twice removed for that matter. With that being said, I think my wispy bodyContinue reading “The Gym – Satan’s Second Home”

The Wacky Walking Race

Have you ever had a silent race on a footpath with a stranger? Where you both take it turns  to overtake one another. Steadily and surely picking up the pace in a desperate attempt to outmaneuver your opponent. I’ve had this too, but what I haven’t had is an argument with an old lady whoContinue reading “The Wacky Walking Race”

Poem: Present/Future

  We only have the present. Regardless of what we want in our futures, It is the ‘now’ which takes all of the credit.   Living in the moment, An experience unknown to many. We disown it in exchange for a chance to oneday own a moment,  Which is nothing more than merely a ‘maybe’.Continue reading “Poem: Present/Future”

Are You Poorer Than Me?

I’m so sick of being poor. Yes I may have a roof over my head and food in my fridge but when you can’t decorate your rooms or make meals beyond tins of soup and sweetcorn then what’s the point? I might aswell be living in The Amazon, atleast then I’ll avoid the council taxContinue reading “Are You Poorer Than Me?”

Are We Truly Selfish Or Kind?

Altruism – “Having or showing an unselfish concern for the welfare of others.” Do you think you’re a nice person? And by this, self-validation in the form of saying “thank you” to the cashier and “hello” to your neighbor I’m afraid doesn’t quite cut it. This question springs to my mind in light of aContinue reading “Are We Truly Selfish Or Kind?”

Poetry: Change

A leopard can change its spots. But cheetahs never do. Changing your mind is one thing. But changing your heart, is about as easy as making a mountain move.   2020 A new year, a new you. This year will be different. A false promise? Or does here lie the truth?   Do you needContinue reading “Poetry: Change”

Volunteering: Help Others And You Help Yourself

They say the best way to feel better about yourself is through helping others. And in no act is this more clear than that of  voluntary work. ‘Volunteering’ can refer to a smorgasboard of activities. Whether you simply take an old dear’s chihuahua out for a walk or wash the windows for your neighbour, theContinue reading “Volunteering: Help Others And You Help Yourself”
