Of thoughts and thinking…. (2012-11-9)

‘The truth may be puzzling. It may take some work to grapple with. It may be counter-intuitive. It may contradict deeply held prejudices. It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true. But our preferences do not determine what’s true.’ Today, the 9th of November is the birthday of one of […]

TFIF! (2012-11-2)

Tonight I plan on having such an awesome night, Morgan Freeman should narrate it. Hi all. Been a while since I’ve updated so I thought I’d better make an effort to do so. It’s just been so damn busy, in a good way and so I’ve just not had the time to write. Not that […]

It’s been a while (2012-10-12)

First of all, apologies for not updating the blog for a while. Life has been good but busy and as a result I’ve simply not had the time to do so. Even this entry will be short and sweet as I have a lot on at the mo. Just a few words to let people […]

Prometheus review (2012-6-2)

I had the pleasure of seeing the new movie Prometheus last night at the Broadway Cinema in Nottingham. Now the Broadway is a totally fabulous place to see any film, it’s just the best. Not the cheapest but you do get what you pay for. Class place. As for the film, it was fabulous and […]

The person I am are the parts that I play …. (2012-3-13)

I don’t know where the years have gone Memories can only last so long Like faded photographs, forgotten songs I must confess to being in a pensive mood. I’ve got things playing on my mind and as a result, perhaps my judgment is questionable and I suspect that I perhaps I’m reading things into things […]

Happy New Year! (2012-1-9)

An optimist stays up until midnight to see the New Year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the Old Year leaves. Not sure who the quote is from but I can assure you that the words are not mine! I’ve not had the chance to update the blog for a while, a mixture […]

Loneliness is about the scariest thing there is. (2011-12-1)

“The most terrible poverty is loneliness, and the feeling of being unloved.” – Mother Teresa Readers will be aware that I am not at my best. That’s a massive understatement actually, but hey ho. Today I’m going to write about something I genuinely hope no reader actually understands. I’m going to be more open on […]

Still searching for the silver lining…… (2011-11-23)

As some of you might already know, I am not at my best right now. Frankly I’m a bit of a mess really, and often find myself when alone just crying and crying and crying. I just can’t seem to stop myself. The sadness of solitude filling my soul. The thought occurred when not crying […]

All things end….. (2011-11-18)

Life for us all is full of turning points, places and times where people and things enter and leave our lives. It happens to us all from time to time, such is the nature of existence. Last night was one of those moments for me. When other people are concerned, when I write a blog […]

Memories are made of these …. (2011-9-14)

‘Own only what you can carry with you; know language, know countries, know people. Let your memory be your travel bag.’ – Alexander Solzhenitsyn As some people might have noticed, I’ve started to made public some blog entries which were previously hidden. Eventually the public blog will include entries from 2001 to now. Entries prior […]
