Turning the corner

There’s no more to say So save your breath and walk away… -Cher, Strong Enough I feel like I have been swallowed whole by the passions of another.

Antisocial

“Perfik!” -H.E. Bates, The Darling Buds of May (Pa Larkin) Oblivious to the rest of the journalling community for the past week or so, I am rampaging through my usual routine of daily drivel and coming up with nothing but blanks.

No time for living.
