Life through my myopic eyes.

Neighbours

My daughter and I could not wait to move into our new house. We had lived in a tiny two bedroom flat for over a year. It was a little cramped to say the least. Two grown people overfilled the space provided. We began to get on each others nerves and in each others way…. Read More ›

Lost

We have all lost something in our lives. Whether the thing lost is as mundane as a favourite ring or as vital as our will to live, we have all suffered the loss of something we needed. Most people’s lives are filled with loss. As we shuffle through this mortal coil, we constantly misplace things…. Read More ›

Pain

Pain changes our lives. It affects how we think, how we feel, and how we move. It is also a part of everyday life. Pain comes in different categories. There is emotional pain, mental pain and physical pain. I do not like any of the categories. My father used to say that pain was a… Read More ›

I was instantly jolted awake by the sight of snow drifts. I was standing in one that covered my back door step. There… Read More ›

Vampires

Vampires, we are told, are fictional creatures that suck the ‘life force’ out of us mere mortals. They are incredibly strong and can only be killed or hurt by sunlight, holy water, garlic, crucifixes and wooden stakes. These supernatural “un-dead” beings can either drain us dry and extinguish our ‘light’ or they can transform us into… Read More ›

Beards

George Carlin used to do a routine about beards versus whiskers. When I was a teenager I found it hysterically funny. George’s position was that beards were un-American. After all Joseph Stalin had a beard.  Whiskers on the other hand were as American as apple pie. Gabby Hayes had whiskers. *side-note* I wonder if anyone remembers… Read More ›
