Why seems to be hardest word

I was chatting to a new colleague, an experienced technical architect, the other day to give him an overview of my team and what we produce. He asked what type of information we provided, was it the “clicky clicky” type or something more useful that explains how our product works. I assured him that we…

It’s the anticipation he fears. Loves. Fears. Needs. The endless tumble in the pit of his stomach. Not knowing. Giving up everything with no return promised. But it arrives. Always. Regardless of interaction, whether gentle caress, stinging slap, or simply ignored. It always returns. He yearns. Pines. Flinches. Wants. Adores. Hides. Desire, desire, desire. There…

Murrayfield Stadium, originally uploaded by Gordon. In total I’ve raised over £850, so thank you to everyone who donated. I quite enjoyed myself, thankfully the weather held and I almost managed it in my target of 4 hours (4hrs 7mins in total). Add in cycling to and from Glasgow Green and I covered 69 miles…

Right! Yes, right. I think, yeah I’m pretty sure, well as much as I can be, that my mindset is in the right place. I pick up my bike on Saturday (finally) you see, hence the change of mindset this week, in preparation. Hmmm, I’m waffling. Let me explain. For a long time, many many…

2011 is here and I’ve just about got the flat into a state I’m happy with (a couple of purchases which will require a credit card remain). So, what else? Well I’ve got a photography course starting towards the end of the month, and a few other commitments that will keep me plenty busy. It’s…

Miscellany

Random thoughts of a Sunday morning. And yes, I’m sitting waiting to get through to buy my ticket for Glastonbury next year. No, the website won’t load, yes the phone line is constantly engaged. You know you are bad at packing when you have several open ‘I’ll-just-take-them-in-the-car’ boxes. Anyone else on WordPress seeing a lot…

Tentatively he walks forward, through the rolling mist that envelopes him. Here and there sparks flash, pockets of light float past, a million different shades of sparkle and dark. Unsure of where he is going he continues to move forward, an outstretched hand reaching for something he can’t see, a presence he can’t touch. She…

There might be news tomorrow. Good news that is. I am NOT counting any chickens though. I am NOT crossing everything that can be crossed. I am NOT praying to a deity I don’t believe in. I am NOT going to follow the viewers round (on their ‘final look before deciding’) muttering “please, please, please,…

Finding it really hard to write these days. My other blog languishes from week to week, and I won’t even mention the other place as it’s bereft of passion, ideas and any form of desire to be creative. I’m blaming that entirely on the fact that I’m pretty damn busy these days, but in a…
