Superfly kind of guy

Superfly kind of guy

Mornings tend to arrive as they do. All willowy and mistlike, sneaking up on the unsuspecting masses like some unwanted shadowy reality check to bring us all down a peg or two. The false sense of security we came to know and love, gone in the transition from dark to light. The day arrives promptly and brings along an entourage of reality, bills, work, and obligations.¬†None of these things were ever in the songs we learned at school. “The wheels…

Hail, sleet or snow

Hail, sleet or snow

You have to take sides once and a while. The fence is too narrow to sit on for too long. I mean, when you know you are right can you just stay silent or should you step up to the plate and digress. Anyway, wooden fences can give you splinters up the arse. Come hail sleet or snow I if anything have my principles and nothing will sway me if I feel that I am right. Now dont get me…

Broken but not stirred

Broken but not stirred

First thing this morning as I was heading down the small road that leads to the turn off on the main road as I was leaving for work I started to notice a metal grating sound coming from under the car. When I got out and looked underneath, I saw that the exhaust was hanging off. So after waiting for the nearest garage to open, popped it in and now I await its repair. Now normally this could send me…

A day and some way out

A day and some way out

The drudgery of work. The time spent somewhere you would rather not be. Life is short. Life is certainly too short to spend away from your family in a job that is slowly chipping away at your inner soul. Don’t get me wrong, I have a job that has substance, that has some reward, but adding everything altogether takes a piece of you with it each and every day. I work in the community sector and have to deal with…

The nature of the beast

The nature of the beast

An attempt to start the week on a positive note was made. Monday blues begone. I won’t be needing you today or for the rest of the week either. Well, that’s what I thought anyway. But here I am, several hours into my day, sat at my desk and feeling for a lack of a better phrase, downright glum. Not in any shape or form depressed mind you, but more of a semi-workable glumness. Why? Well, the usual hurdles at…

What’s in a name

What’s in a name

Burkina Faso. God I love how saying that rolls off the tongue. Burkina Faso, Burkina Faso, Burkina Faso. Saying it quicker is even better. I’ve never met anyone from there, but if they are even half as nice as the name they have for their country, then I am in for a treat.

Mondays in hindsight

Mondays in hindsight

They are what they are. The start of a brand new week. Psychologically they should be used to wipe the slate clean and start again. I mean, if you tell yourself everything will be good over and over, surely that means you give yourself a fighting chance that it will. Right? My 40-minute drive to work alone in the early hours of the morn often brings a barrage of thought and a plethora of ideas. Some good, some not so….

Looney infant

Looney infant

One good thing to make you less focused on your self is an infant. It’s like living with someone constantly drunk with a dash of high.¬† My God, my life is tossed and turned every which way by this three year old demon on wheels. But, hey it can be quiet funny too. Respect to single parents that do this with little or no support though. I came home from work and was handed this mad thing as my other…

Monday Monday

Monday Monday

Monday morning and the dawn has not yet arrived. Its dark and cold outside but the possibilities are endless. I decide to take this week and begin it in a positive way. Something good is around every corner and I will be fine .Such is the mantra I choose for this week that lies ahead. I tend to leave for work at an unearthly hour sometimes. My job allows me the freedom to do so. The only bonus of the…
