• Keeping Up

    I enjoy that this is a website i don't need to come onto every day, or even every week or month. I visit Write to Recovery website two or three times a year and it is such a handy resource for me to have when i feel i have exhausted a lot of other avenues during a particularly bad spell. The thing is i am not really having an overly bad spell. I am actually ...

  • Patterns : Relationship (Ctrl +Alt + Del)

    I arrived with time to spare at counselling today.  I noticed the lady beside me in the waiting area looked like Bettie Page; short fringe, long dark hair, 50s style I can only dream of. My counsellor arrived and led me to a new room. It was softly lit and had a decorative bowl of rocks on the table where I plonked my water bottle. One had a groove on  it that would exactly fit my thumb. ...

I am writing messages to the cosmos for someone to see , he explains to himself. He fears a black hole ...

  • A Chronicle At Daybreak - patience in getting up.

    A chronicle at daybreak - Patience in getting up. Understanding his morning blues when he wakes up and how he gets up was key to Bob's salvation. "Its a delicate, vital process" He admits to himself not to be taken lightly. The sorrow he feels when he awakes is like a mournful cockerel crowing, where long , black, thin shadows prevail and there is a surreal sunrise to overcome with reality to embrace later. He ...
