The Final Days

Thinking & Feeling So, after more than two years, the time has finally come – I’m going home. Home being, to no home… well, not entirely true; to my parents home, actually – gratefully – but not really my home, not anymore, and it hasn’t been for some time. That said, “home” will always beContinue reading “The Final Days”

Drawing Circles

What if life isn’t a linear pathway to death? Most of us non god fearing folk imagine ourselves on a line, from A – B, birth to death. In the depths of the night, sleepless notions draw in and out like the tide, frothing up all the man made crap people throw away. I thinkContinue reading “Drawing Circles”

No children, no problems

Selfish, or selfless? World population is growing unsustainably. As of time of writing, world population is almost 7.9 billion. I’m rounding up, as based on data released by the UN, there’s 250 births every minute – that’s more than 4 a second – and 131.4 million a year, we’ll be there in a blink.

I don’t get why people still use the old saying; What came first, the chicken or the egg? Isn’t it a bit like religionContinue reading “What came first, the chicken or the egg?”

Nostalgia, it’s a hell of a drug

Whose that pokemon? Its Snorlax! Man, this dude has it figured out. I wish I could sleep like this guy. He’s got the work/life balance down. Shame, I’m more Electrode. Self-destructing. Don’t worry, for those who missed out or couldn’t care less, this post isn’t all about Pokemon. It’s about nostalgia. A celebration of childhood,Continue reading “Nostalgia, it’s a hell of a drug”

What’s the worlds strongest compliment?

When, “looking good hun”, just won’t cut it. I noticed how women sometimes compliment other women by saying they look like a celebrity. I wonder what it’s like to be famous. One side effect is the advancement of an acute sense of UV exposure. I see why celebrities are called stars. There isn’t a glowContinue reading “What’s the worlds strongest compliment?”
