Dawn Brings a New Day

It’ll be Easter tomorrow.   As a child, Good Friday and Easter Sunday were compulsory church days for me. Even now, as a half-pagan semi-atheist (I am multitudes), I sometimes feel a slight desire to attend church services during Easter.  Easter, with its representation of new beginnings and coming back to life, feels even more importantContinue reading “Dawn Brings a New Day”

Passionate Frenzy

Valentine’s Day has never been a big day for me. Not when I was single and believed that I would be forever alone, not when I was in a relationship. Not even after I got married. I’ve always approached it from a cynical stance ie. as a day for KPI-driven capitalists to make a killingContinue reading “Passionate Frenzy”

Spinner

This month, I missed about two weeks of daily blogging. But instead of beating myself up right away, I looked back on my month and thought about the things I’d been up to.  I spoke at two events (both of which got decent local press coverage). I wrote a 30,000-word report on agriculture for anContinue reading “Spinner”

Joy

I woke up this morning and the heaviness that I’d grown used to had somewhat dissipated. For the last two weeks, the days have been gloomy. Mornings have been especially difficult. The months before that have been hazy.  There’s a sense of unfamiliar pleasure when the melancholy dissipates.  Like when you’ve had an ulcer forContinue reading “Joy”
