On Boxing Day, I finally, for the first time ever, watched “It’s A Wonderful Life.” Oh my Bowie. I loved it. I related to it. I guess you could say I responded to it in exactly the same way in which I was supposed to. The idea of feeling like a failure, like you’ve never managed to leave the place you were planted, never been able to achieve whatever it was in life you thought you could have…only to realise that all of the beautiful parts of your life were right in front of you all along. It’s so cheesy…

Feeling: Overwhelmed, anxious, out of control, like my house is never gonna look clean again, like I’m gonna crack one of these days and just rip the page that says “tidy” out of the dictionary. Looking: Like a sweaty thyroidy wet patch. In fairness, this is cos I just got back from the gym. Yes. I am going. Again. Hold me. Not that close. I smell. Doing: A ton of stuff. Gigs. Trying to work out how to crack this whole $10,000 target thing. Celebrating small victories. Fluffing my life away on Facebook. Beating myself up for not being more…

Ever since I took to the streets – of cyberspace that is, paved as they are with glittery mountain dew – and asked for feedback on this blog, I’ve been taking some time to reflect on your responses and with those as a starting point, clarify exactly where I want to take things.

Of moving forward.  There was one hunch I’d had which was confirmed by the blog survey. Again, I…

I’m at a bit of a crossroads. Questioning things, shaking things up, trying to work out where to from here. Part of this, in fact a pretty damn big chunk of this, involves working out what direction this blog is going to head in. I’ve got a ton of possibilities – some dramatic, some not so – floating through my little brain, but before I launch myself into a half-baked plan of change, I turn to you. My friends. The good yet sometimes faceless folks who read this little corner of cyberspace. I ask you: why are you here? Not…
