Tune In and Wake up!

Tune In and Wake up!

Am sitting in my mum’s cute maisonette as the headline “Activists Accuse Farm Club of Speciesism” leaps out of the Saturday newspaper cutting through the pulsing vocal throb of love longing and lost from the radio in the lounge and more plaintive human wailing of love loss longing and desire from the radio in the kitchen, “Senorita… I love it when you call me Senorita….” “When your body has had enough of me….” “When you are in Love with a beautiful woman….” “I’m in love with the shape of you”

Who is Herb Robert?

Who is Herb Robert?

Hello dear friends, I had a serious blip in March (alcohol poisoning from too much free champagne at the Savoy Hotel – I kid you not dear reader) that took me off track and impacted quite extremely on my mind body and spirit throughout most of April. I was pretty depressed and lost sight of […]

2019 Has Fully Arrived

2019 Has Fully Arrived

  The capacity for illness to render time nonfunctional is powerful business at the best of times. A time out of time where the markers of human existence warp, become half speed, double speed or just suspended animation in the context of body functions. At the end of last year looked like history was going […]

Cleavers Time Again

Cleavers Time Again

Once more the wheel turns and my garden is bursting with bluebells, violets and lilac. The lush blues and purples enticing me out to play and discover the baby nettles that make the best nettle soup, the beginnings of Herb Robert and of course the most prolific greenery of cleavers. I cannot think or see cleavers […]

2018 Swimming In Source

  For some people the phrase “they fought a lengthy and courageous battle with illness” implies a journey of many years navigating cancer, the treatments, timelines and pharmaceutical helpers. When I die, which I hope will be in some 30 years time I would hope that sentence will no longer be applicable to me but […]

WTF IS THIS INTERVAL ORACLE THEN!

WTF IS THIS INTERVAL ORACLE THEN!

Hello dear readers, so I am still here, in this fifth month of May and haven’t migrated over to my new home YET. One of the reasons for this is that I cannot decide whether to be http://www.calliopeGP.com OR Calliopetheguineapig.com. If you have been following me or reading this blog for a while maybe I could […]

Deep Diving pt 2

I gently pulsed it through my body letting the words be carried through my lymph and through my blood on a wave of silent sound, letting the many needles O has put in me hum with this sound – just to let the cancer know that it’s days are now numbered

The Power Of The One Is The Power Of The Many

Hello dear readers, a couple of you were asking about the maggots. Rest assured they do get a mention today albeit briefly. As you are probably by now aware, I like to write things a few weeks after the fact in order to give me time to reflect and process. So I arrived back in London […]

Back To Business: Reflaxing Not Chillaxing

Back To Business: Reflaxing Not Chillaxing

Hello readers, where would be without our stories? (As Byron Katie might be paraphrased). Stories are a great way to educate, share information, pass on pearls of wisdoms in ways that can adapt to each individual that hears them, and our ability to reflect on our own stories, integrate the learnings and then reframe them […]

Potato Thrashing – The Personal Made Public

Potato Thrashing – The Personal Made Public

The realisation of the length breadth and dimensionality of interconnectivity makes my breath stop for a second in my throat when I am at the farm. You see the city is so loud. “Inner City Life, Inner City pressure”. But the countryside is Louder. Really. You know that expression the silence was deafening – well […]
