45 Not Out

It’s my birthday today (it’s OK, I know your present is lost in the post): 45 years old. I don’t think I look it and I don’t think I feel it. But, there it is. Somehow, I am 45. I used to be 20. Fuck it, I used to be 5. In fact, pick any number under 45 and I … Read More

Delete & Block

The internet. One of man’s greatest creations. In generations to come, mankind will look back on this in the same way we look back at the Iron Age or the Industrial Revolution. In many ways, it is a triumph. It has given careers to those that don’t fit in and didn’t fancy a regular job (hello!); it provides an infinite … Read More

Neural Pathways To Happiness

For most of my life, I have suffered with depressive illnesses of varying degrees resulting in anything from light grumpiness to suicidal tendencies.

Creating Memories

My brother, his wife and their young family are coming to visit us for a few days. Seeing our nephew and niece grow – becoming little people with their own opinions – is particularly fascinating. Not having children, I can only ever experience this third hand and find it intriguing how seemingly small events from their past have now affected … Read More
