Fail is a four-letter word

In the world of Blakes 7 fandom, there are many hotly debated issues, but the end of the series is particularly divisive. There are many fans who feel let down by the fact that everyone (debatably) died and that the evil Federation 'won'. Personally, I have always been happy, although obviously also devastated, that it… Continue reading Fail is a four-letter word

3 questions, then I can do it

If you are female, and living in the twenty-first century, you can't have avoided seeing this inspirational phrase. Indeed, you may have it in your planner, or on your wall, more than likely printed in a calligraphy-style font, quite possibly in minimal black on white, or in rose-gold with some marbling if you've gone for… Continue reading 3 questions, then I can do it

Imagining my brain is exactly the right size

"Come on, Frank, an officer files things in his head. He doesn't remember them until they pop up, you know that: a face, a street, a name, a number, zabba-dabba-doo, like that..."

Word of the Week – Persevere

Here in Norfolk, as in a lot of the United Kingdom, last week was chilly and wet and decidedly un-spring-like. In tandem with the blossom on the trees, and the seedlings in the ground, we humans had to practice perseverance to get us through to the brighter weather and slightly higher temperatures that we are… Continue reading Word of the Week – Persevere

I think we all need a little renaissance every now and again; we could, in fact, think of each Monday morning as a time for rebirth, the Spring-time of the week. I know that in reality rebirth is far from all of our minds as the working week looms over us and all I am saying… Continue reading Word of the Week – Renaissance

Word of the Week – Accomplish

Looking forwards as we start a new week and a new month, my chosen Word of the Week "Accomplish" is an exhortation to set goals and strive to achieve something. To set oneself a challenge, to determine a course. It is wise, in setting goals, to accept that we can still accomplish something even if… Continue reading Word of the Week – Accomplish

In which progress is made

We live in a universe in which stars are being born in clouds of gas whilst others cool and diminish; entire galaxies are spinning, colliding, grouping and re-forming. So it is with our everyday lives - there are things we have just started, others that we are making some kind of progress on or completed,… Continue reading In which progress is made
