The Hardest Decisions I’ve Ever Had To Make

In my last article, I wrote about the benefits of decision making. I’ve always been decisive. I think some people think I am selfish but I just have a major fear of wasting time. There are times in life when I am overly conscious of the time that we have and so I like to […]

The Only Decisions You Need To Make

It can be as simple as black and white. We can add colour to life when we choose. Or, we can smudge the black into the white and create a miserable, sorry-for-itself grey. Often we know what colours we want to add to our canvas, but we’re afraid that everyone will notice when we create something unfamiliar. […]

How Do You Judge a Toilet?

There were two framed certificates on the wall. “Loo of the Year Award – 5 Stars – 2011” “Loo of the Year Award – Platinum – 2014”. My immediate thoughts were: What happened in 2012 and 2013? Why the hell had they lost their Platinum status this year? I looked down at my hands to […]

A Million Ways To Die

Sometimes when I am on the bus I think about the bus driver having a heart attack and the bus swerving off and crashing into the nearest building. I also think about this when in a taxi. This actually happened recently in the city I live in. Though the bus didn’t crash into a building, […]

Too Many Tribes, Not Enough Quests

We have no control in what goes on around us. NONE. Yet most of us spend ALL our time trying to change either what’s happening or what’s being perceived as happening. We focus on the outside. How will I look? How can I cover up X? What will happen if X happens? How can I […]

Finding Your Own Space

I’ve just spent two days without going outside. I didn’t go crazy. I don’t think. I probably shouldn’t be the judge of that. I slept at random hours. Breaking all my own rules. The sun is hot. The air is humid. Too much for my pale skin and thick hair. I haven’t brushed my hair in 3 […]

Halfway Crooked Neck

Two times this last week I have been out running and have been re-routed through curiosity. The first was a week ago. I took a new running route and at some point, my flow was rudely interrupted by some unwanted commotion which penetrated my headphones. It sounded like hip-hop, so I went to investigate. I […]
