Tasteless Birthday Cake

As my mum returned from a distant relatives birthday meal she handed me a piece of cake. I am an open advocate of all things baked and appreciate the gesture but one bite in and there was not a happy expression about my face. I’m sure the cake was beautifully iced with an appropriate amount […]

Faith of a different kind

I have been under the weather for over a week, feeling a little disheartened by the world and a little more than let down by some of the people I care about the most. Before I explain more I want to tell you that this story has a happy ending. Over the last couple of […]

A few bad habits…

I’ve had a few habits my whole life through my changing music tastes, my changing perspectives and my changing looks. When I was little I remember writing words so honest when I found them a few years later written on an old toy it really hit me emotionally. It kept happening but it’s only today […]

The peach kissed sky stands through the blossoms of a tree which obscures my unwilling view of the melancholic grey roofs. I contemplate as soft sounds fill my head with an ache that says my thought […]
