10 Top Psychological Tips for Dealing With a Cancer diagnosis.

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 […]

European Adventures pt.3 Escape From Krankenhutch

Hello once again dear readers, glad you could join me as I continue my long tale of summertime happenings in the life of my alter ego – a guineapig called Calliope. If you recall in my last post I was resting and re-ecuperating in a German Hospital in Neu Brandenberg. In fact I had settled […]

European Exchanges pt 2 DAS KRANKENHAUS

   So my dear friends and readers – I believe I left you on the edge of your seats in my dramatic description of how I came to be left alone on a hospital stretcher bed in a corridor of a large emptyish hospital in Neu Brandenberg whilst I seemingly bled to death – apologies […]

2013 – From Dreams to Reality.

The idea of being a medical tourist as it were – of going to a health spa where some-one else makes you 6 organic veggie juices a day, some-one else is leading early morning […]

Queer Femme Time pt 1.

       This blog is dedicated to my long suffering friends, lovers and family both biological and non biological, who have been on the receiving end of my queer temporality (lateness in common parlance) i.e everyone I have ever met. As an anthropomorphic guinea-pig I generally tend to eschew further labelling. The human part of me does though like to celebrate being […]

Thrills and Spills. Anyone for Coffee?

As one would expect, sometimes sticking coffee up your ass can be a messy business…though at least I don’t attempt to stand on my head during the act, or bounce on a rebounder as one lady I know did. With dire results. Apparently. Aside from that, the pros for engaging with coffee in this manner […]

Green is the colour, but  football  isn’t  the  game,  juicing  greenage  is.  I,   Guinea-pig,  Chlorophyllium! I Love breakfast Juice and here is the recipe which I am still not tired of after 8 years – (natch, grass day in day out is the normal culinary fate of us Gps) 2  sticks  of  celery,  ginger  to […]

So Glad I’m Not Scared of Spiders.

So it’s been summer. Kind of. And the necessary discipline and application for sqweekly blog writing diminished somewhat. But the almost imperceptible waft of autumnal smell, and the glistening september webmastery of ‘aving it’ garden spiders heralds a renewed commitment – to the writing of this weekly blog, and a workable routine of health, study, and […]
