Fake News

Reports are coming in of a breaking news story that is fake. Numerous un-named sources from various high-ranking departments / companies / sectors and other non-descript bodies have all concurred to these current events. Concurrently, on the other side of the world, there are other unsubstantiated and extremely patchy bulletins being released that may or may not have links to the breaking news story here. … Continue reading Fake News

Smiles to all! Weekend once more!

Up early. Out early. Supplies bought. Art supplies, that is. And I have no idea what I’m going to do with them… just went on a pick and mix rampage and bought anything that jumped out at me! I have two tiny tiny segmented containers, two sparkly glass candle holders, a two-handled vase, some feathers, a glue gun with glue sticks, a sharp knife, some … Continue reading Smiles to all! Weekend once more!

Strange things can happen at any time…

Another blast from the past, this one, and fortunately a blast not caused by 2012 BX34. 2012 BX34? What’s 2012 BX34? You may well ask. Read on, and you may stumble across the answer… Oh, and by the way… wording in italics have been added since the post was written back in 2012. It would appear very dated without the additions. Who would’ve thought something … Continue reading Strange things can happen at any time…

Things. Just things.

Or Trying to Make Sense of it all. At Least Some of It. Things I’ve observed Two little sparrows hopping and flying and playing with each other over lawns and fences and rooftops. I’m sure they had cheery smiles on their beaks! Two magpies walking on another lawn, one with its black feathers rather unkempt. They reminded me of the rhyme ‘One for sorrow, two … Continue reading Things. Just things.

Wordle: Dark Thoughts

Thoughts spiral Peck and chip Nag and itch List and last Settle fast Or linger Throughout life If allowed to run Some are fun But the whole of them? The total sum? Laced with anger Tinged with greed Filled with urges And desperate needs Saints and sinners Sing their prayers Splitting hairs Resting demons Allaying fears That grew From but a single seed Planted carelessly … Continue reading Wordle: Dark Thoughts

Mead and Mortals

Lightning flashed and made her look up. The doors to the inn, a mere second later, swung inwards simultaneously and the room was instantly filled with a strong-odoured wind. “By the gods!” the woman muttered, but stayed where she was, propped. Zeus walked into the inn, followed by his consort Hera. “Wench!” He bellowed, “A tankard of your finest mead!” The woman stayed where she … Continue reading Mead and Mortals

The Place of W

Outside the realms of my magical and wondrous Mansion exists another place. The polar opposite, if you like. A dark and sinisterly treacherous place known only as W. There, clouds swirl in turmoil overhead, and sometimes around. Icy winds blast and cut straight through exposed skin, deep into the warm veins beneath – some dare say they reach deep within the soul. With me, they … Continue reading The Place of W

Today’s Post

Today’s post is brought to you by a form of contemporary dance. Mostly the aspects of unpredictable changes in rhythm and speed, jerky directional movements and sudden falls and recovery, it is interspersed with a jolting head-bobbing movement and rapid eye-blinking. Water is on hand for thirst-quenching properties and painkiller takeage alike. Legwork is calm and controlled. Nimble fingers gingerly tumble effortlessly and meaningfully across … Continue reading Today’s Post

A Brand New Pair of Jeans

A Long Six Word Saturday post. Sitting comfortably? Then I shall begin. This week, I treated myself to a new pair of jeans. I finished work on Thursday, ahead of my week off, had something to eat, and then went out shopping. The journey to the shop was fine. The roads weren’t as busy as I expected them to be, although there were queues at … Continue reading A Brand New Pair of Jeans

The Pinocchio Effect

Decades ago when I was just a wee boy, knee high to a grasshopper, and in total awe of everything that was around me, I made a monumental decision. OK, I wasn’t exactly knee high, getting on for eight, nine or possibly ten years old, and the awesomeness of some things had started to shine a little less brightly thanks to a few ‘others’ who … Continue reading The Pinocchio Effect
