I can feel it

The time for my walkabout draws near. I can feel it in my bones and in my heart. I gave Crazy a crack on my skull and by a few swings of her sword I was left open with an empty chest for far too long. My lifeblood returns slowly and it will not again…

Likeable friends

We all love to be liked. What is more difficult to handle is the knowledge that someone does not like you. Especially if it’s a person you like. I’m not always the smoothest person in the room and most of the time not silent. I take up space around me. Sometimes lots of it and…

Fighting in a leaking boat

Sometimes I read or hear some people trying to put the blame of the state of our Earth on science and man’s greed for money or power. These days, with all the earthquakes, tsunamis and all other major disasters in the world, there’s a lot of that going around. It always saddens me when there…

In awe, I am

In the absence I am distracted to a tremble by every sound and by the heat of it all. How strange turns a path sometimes holds for us. It can question the map you hold in your hand and rightly so, for who are we to know the complexity of truth? There are explanations to…

I guess I must be

A new day. People are still crazy and I am still around: all the fixings for a good novel and a never boring life. I would like to say that living in this world is like watching the blind leading the blind, but that would be an insult to blind people. Complete crazy leading the complete crazy…
