Resolution: A firm decision to do or not to do something. The beginning of the year, you decide to be more active and go to the gym every week. And you do very well for the first couple of months. But then something happens and you break your routine because life got in the way … Continue reading New Year’s Resolutions – Yes, another post about it.
At the beginning of last week, I told myself and my readers that I would do Blogtober for a week. I was all set and ready to go that night. The next morning I had a post ready to rock and I had ideas for the rest of the week. But if you look back … Continue reading It’s Okay To Fail
As an advocate for mental health and as someone who has mental health issues, I've done the standard, put it into Google and hope an answer falls into my lap.

There was also sunshine, which was unusual because it's raining most years. It was a happy day. It also made me realise that half of another year has gone and … Continue reading The Year So Far…
I've always written poetry...well I've always written sentences that rhyme. Rhyming is awesome. Anyway, I've decided to put aside my other projects for the moment and concentrate more on my poems and where I want them to go. Of course, any project needs research and the most logical place to begin is poetry books. The … Continue reading Mixing Reality with Dreams
