Thoughts on the engineering

We rupture, breaking hearts and bleeding vessels, but we mend somehow and carry on to break again, bleed again and lead again into another break.

Learning to crawl

That first step is the hardest, it’s the abstract that counteracts reality, your ideas of real are really not mine, mine are the flip chart the start of the rainbow the unicorn and her dancing show the things we feel what can you disprove? remove me from the equation and what have you got? straight…

‘Spare some change, can you spare a copper or two for a tea, can you? the streets are full the beggars with their operas pull the punters in. They’ll wear away the pavements if they stay much longer. these are the new age living monuments to the times in which we live and so we…

Fig leafs

Tell me what do you miss? what you missing the most? is it me? is it you? is it the last thing you post? what you missing the most? It’s temporal distortion when time’s out of space or is it a spiritual restoration that shows on your face? We pretend that we don’t know when…
