Poem: Disability

  Disability It's all about perspective. To you, I'm Dissed. Disadvantaged. Dismissed, before I even get a chance to.   Whether I'm 'weak' in the mind, Or 'weak' at the knees. Your mind's made up, Before I even get a chance to plead.   You judge me on appearances. Refuse to look beyond my disability.... Continue Reading →

The Psychology of Value – Culture

Carrying on from yesterday’s post, I noted how this concept of value stems from our childhoods. How we internally form an attachment to particular items we deem as ‘ours’  from a young age. Yet when comparing this globally, there are certain cultures where regardless of age, this trend does not appear. For example in a... Continue Reading →

The Psychology of Value

What do you think is more valuable, the price of these rings in the picture, or, the relationship symbolised by them? No rush to answer! How about the question below instead, as a continuation from yesterday's post:   If I gifted you a Swiss chocolate bar to begin with then a few moments later asked... Continue Reading →

Stress: The Real SERIAL Killer

According to the American Psychological Association, chronic stress is linked to the six leading causes of death: heart disease, cancer, lung ailments, accidents, cirrhosis of the liver and suicide.   The link between mind and body is far deeper than we may have realised. You only have to listen to Ted’s Radio Hour episode entitled... Continue Reading →

The Most Bizarre Home Remedies

Currently I have this massive blind pimple on my forehead that could rival any set of antlers on a prime young stag. Ofcourse this is the week I have work experience with a nice little editorial name and an interview gig at the weekend. So no better time for acne to make an unwanted appearance...

When walking the dog just doesn't cut the mustard why not try:   Laughter Yoga Pretend to be 5 years old again and you may end up laughing for a lifetime.

Poem: Winter

Crimson embers of fire crackle, Beneath the pale moon light. The stars they twinkle like tiny freckles, Upon the face of the night.   The sun awakens, from its slumbers, Naked vegetation shivers with delight. For they are scarce, they're few in number, Desperate for the light.   The season sets a spell of slumber,... Continue Reading →

Poem: A Job Is A Job

Knees buckled beneath me. Feet gnarled, toes curled. The whole world's up against me. Yet still I spin, I twirl.   Counting pennies until it defeats me. I'm sedated by my lost dreams. It seems the past always repeats me, A path of unraveling seams.   Whispered regrets always greet me. My childhood career was... Continue Reading →

Poem – Shy

I'm Shy. Is that ok? I know I should meet your eyes more than sometimes. But I don't. Should I be ashamed?   I get nervous when around strangers. Find I become a stranger in myself. I feel paranoid of the dangers, That lurk just behind the shelf.   I'm angry for being this way.... Continue Reading →

Poem – The Fall of Autumn

Death never looked so beautiful, Leaf litter burnt orange in the fading Autumn sun, Crunches beneath my feet as the day carries on.   The air is colder, Green is no longer seen. The days are shorter, A Midsummer Night is merely but a dream.   Ochre, pumpkin,  chestnut and crimson. All show their true... Continue Reading →

Poem: A Human

A Human A subatomic bunch of laughter and woes, From our nose down to our toes, We either grimace or glow. Why are we here on this planet of blue sea and earth? Does it own us? Or do we own the world? Brief is the time we get to embrace it. You blink your... Continue Reading →

Eye

I haven't worn glasses since the age of 10 and you can tell, my eye's lazier than the cleaners who play candy crush in the cubicles at work. I had to wear an eye patch till the age of 8, and once they told me I couldn't be saved, I chucked the glasses and with... Continue Reading →

An Apple A Day…….

If an apple a day keeps the doctor away then give me the whole goddamn fruit bowl for my experience with the medical industry was anything but pleasant.  Carrying on from this! Let me explain: (GP practice door) Knock, Knock. Who's there? An absolute imbecile that's who! There's no room for politeness here. It's eyesight we... Continue Reading →
