There was a time when I awoke,
Upon my partner I would stare.
Is her smile my favorite feature?
Or her glowing auburn hair?
As I lay there gazing, the sun slipped into the skies,
I knew what made life brighter,
T'was the sparkle in her eyes.
Our passion quickly grew entangled,
we cinched it... Read more of this blog post »

INTO THE DARK
Into the dark of unknown dread I go,
armed only with my faith,
my hope, my pride.
Where I will find myself I do not know,
but still I seek the mystery inside.
Here in my heart a fire starts to burn,
as what I need is still ye... Read more of this blog post »

Molly, my youngest, went off to university this week and this set me thinking about the cycle of life. I’ve had the odd brief message, just enough to know that Fresher’s Week is going well and that she’s making friends and getting used to living in London. This has nudged my twenty-eight years o...Read more of this blog post »
When we hit the road this morning there was a chill in the air. On the shaded downhills at twenty miles an hour the jersey and shorts I wore seemed inadequate. But the sky was clear and I knew we were less than an hour away from summer-like heat and so I welcomed the brief, bracing cold.
As usual...Read more of this blog post »

Let go of dread.
Treat it like a feeling. Identify it. Accept and acknowledge it. Then release it. Do whatever you have to, to get it out of your system. Because dread is more than just a feeling—it’s really a curse.
We throw this dark gray blanket of dread over our lives for hours, sometimes days,...Read more of this blog post »
