New beginnings.

New beginnings.

2012 is coming to an end, and 2013 is just around the corner. A new year and so-called new beginnings. Yada yada, we’ve all heard it before. What is it with the beginning of a new year we seem think we’ve wiped the slate clean? Is it the lull after a usually hectic December month? … Continue reading

Confessions…

I need to make a small confession. This is not my first blog. If anything, this blog is my third one that is virtual, excluding the various written journals & diaries I’ve kept since my early teens. I’ve always found writing down my thoughts to be quite therapeutic, of course at the beginning my scribbles … Continue reading

It’s a zoo out there!

Ok, maybe not really.¬† For fun, I’ve been looking at my old drawings and sketches. Lots of animals, but also things I made just for fun. Boredom can be highly productive indeed. First I came across some of work as a kid, the earliest work I still own alas. I think a lot of my … Continue reading

As I generally don’t like big crowds, and rather dislike the busy Friday & weekend options, I usually try to catch a matinee somewhere midweek. Merely going on a Monday or Tuesday is … Continue reading

Four seasons

Four seasons

Now I normally quite enjoy the four seasons that are on offer. However I always find myself hating one aspect of winter. Colds. Or more specifically, having one. Nothing is more frustrating when you find yourself losing a couple of days simply because of a stuffed nose, a sore throat, and the constant presence of … Continue reading

Lost in time

Out of the blue I feel the urge to make that thing that has been haunting¬† my mind for a while. That thing I usually delay until another day, because I’m not sure it’s such a good idea to do it at this moment. Until one day there’s simply nothing better to do, and I’m … Continue reading
