MENSA: To join, or not to join: that is the question.

“I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.” Albert Einstein

  • I am heavily tattooed.

  • I have dreadlocks.

RIP Ragnar 2016-2018

Home was not home without you in it.

Dear Ragnar…

Or booooooi, broeder, mow, rags or anything else you would answer to instead of your name ❤

I did not think that today would pan out the way it has. I did not expect a call, THE call that I received this morning and I most certainly didn’t expect that the last time I would give you a good rub down would be last night…

Genderquake

Ignorance breeds hatred

I’ve always believed that I’m an extremely open minded person. I have controversial, inclusive opinions on gender and sexuality but I believe it comes down to acceptance. Acceptance and the ability not to be AN IGNORAMUS!

Anxiety, depression and my body.

Add to the dish a spoonful of self-loathing, a cup of sadness, a dash of doubt and sprinkle a topping of self-disappointment and you’re sure to be left with a recipe for dark day disaster.

I can’t say that sitting in the Primark changing rooms, balling my big brown eyes out, was my finest moment. It was however, a recent moment and one that shook me from the place of comfort that I’ve recently become accustomed too, down a rabbit hole of self pity which I’ve tried my utmost to avoid.

Spiritual Dreadlocks (Jaṭā)

Many cultures believe that the head is the release point for all energies and so, with my dreadlocks protecting me, the energy can be kept safe within me.

I have had every hairstyle of every hair colour at every age throughout my life, I have also been fortunate in that all of these different hairstyles have suited me along the way (or so I have been told). The spiritual progression of things led me down a path of loc enlightenment which saw me finally getting dreadlocks, a crown I have lusted after for an age. In January of this year, I began my #dreadtribe journey and I could not be happier with the outcome – both aesthetically and spiritually.

Dearest nephews…

I cannot wait to be a part of your lives as you grow into the strong, loving boys you’re destined to be.

My dearest nephews…

I longed to be an aunt for an age and yet my siblings were on their own life course. They made me wait and wait and at the time I had made a pivotal decision to move to another country in October 2014, I finally learned of your impending arrival…

Trauma – The writings of a child abuse survivor.

I am who I am not because of him but in spite of him.

“I am not an alcoholic!” he exclaims loudly as he slurps back the last of a 70cl whiskey bottle. The alcohol doesn’t scare me, it never has. What scares me is the angry result of a bottle down, which would generally lead to me taking the brunt of a father’s frustration after a long day. “I am not an alcoholic!” he shouts again as I wonder which of us he is trying to convince: himself or the 13-year-old girl before him.
