Into the Void

It is coming to a time of year (Christmas) that I have become more and more conflicted about as the years have gone by. I don’t think it is a time of year that I have ever really enjoyed. I find it challenging for so many reasons and after what we have all been throughContinue reading “Into the Void”

How Soon Is Now

A fairly depressing song – from a fairly depressing band – and certainly a lead singer with somewhat questionable attitudes and beliefs. Relax. I am not going down that path. It is the thoughtfulness that this song brings out that I relate to. There is also some empathy with the background to the song andContinue reading “How Soon Is Now”

White Rabbit

One of the reasons I listen to music is to escape. It is something that takes me away from the now and transports me to different moments in time.

Release The Pressure

It has been a few weeks since my last post – but actually this is my 18th so far and for that I am pretty proud of myself. I had no expectations when I set out to do this – I didn’t know if it would be a one off – or a regular thingContinue reading “Release The Pressure”

Dancing In The Dark

I think I am beginning to realise that I need more help. I have help. Very good help. Help that has made a massive difference already and continues to push me along a positive journey. That will continue – for sure – I will not give up on that journey. But I think I needContinue reading “Dancing In The Dark”
