It is only now becoming apparent how much has changed around these parts in the last year. Some of it has been dictated by circumstance, other bits are a consequence of hard work and application. 2018 is the year I learnt to love poetry, a format that was previously pretty much ignored. It begs the … Continue reading The Lark, Ascending.
Sometimes, I take things WAY too seriously. It's been like this for decades, too: it isn't just a mental shortcoming, either. I'd love to be able to say the wiring in my head is to blame, which means I'll often completely misinterpret signals.

This has meant a quite significant re-organisation of how things work and what is written at certain times of the week, leading to a provisioning of days … Continue reading Building the Perfect Beast
Yesterday, I put back my weightlifting ambitions by an indeterminate period of time. The injuries sustained to both hands and my left elbow won't be properly obvious until swelling has gone down, which could take up to a couple of weeks (knowing how my body reacts to these circumstances generally.) The fact this was my … Continue reading Falling Down
