“PHASING”

It has been a long time that I have been unwell……………………..but now the time has come and the “Phasing” begins. Dam the summer flu…..I made it through winter without a hitch …now it hits home. It is a really weird feeling you get when you feel like your...

Young struggle

I was talking with my wife last night and I shared a moment when I was 7-8 years old. I thought it important enough to share with her….I would like to share it with you. Since I was 5, we moved around the countryside as dad followed work. My...

Unconditional love

Throughout the world I have seen the occasional person standing by their selves in the middle of a crowded mall with a sign that simply states “FREE HUGS”. Anyone that wishes to be hugged approaches and asks and receive a hug ……unconditionally, no...

In 2005 I had my first heart attack. I worked a long shift, stressful day and on the way home at night I was driving home when ………Bang, chest pain x10. I thought “Ohh shit…..I should pull over and call an ambulance”. But then another thought...

Factor of three

One memory (among many) that comes to mind is when I was moving house with the help of two of my mates. We had a problem that presented itself regarding a large frame work of metal/wood/etc and it had to go in the skip bin……no big deal, but, it was...

My Right foot

This is how my handwriting is often described. At school I handed in assignments and were told it looked like: ·         A chook scratch ·         A fly walked across my paper. ·         I wrote it in a dark room Oh I have heard a few. I...

Extra Ordinary

The blank page stares at me, beckoning me to go on an adventure with it. Pen, write me a universe and lead my thoughts on a distant journey. I tell myself to look back briefly at some of the bad things that had happened in my life. The test for me...

Writing the right write

A strange name for a heading but there you are.  Last Sunday I had a chance to just sit and write…………….and write I did. I let my mind wander over any and everything. I wrote pages upon pages of “stuff”, some old issues came up and I dealt with them...

How many friends have passed away?

We see people on here every day writing posts, putting up pictures and videos. Gradually they may lessen their writings or suddenly stop abruptly, never to return. ·         Have they become bored and left the site? ·         Have they found a...
