10 Top Psychological Tips for Dealing With a Cancer diagnosis.

Hello dear reader, firstly let me tell you that on hearing the words cancer related to you and your person, or to some-one you know  – either as a surety or a possibility –  it is likely that you will feel like your world has collapsed and the chill of death has nipped the air […]

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 part5: A Way of Bee – ing In The Land of Milk and Honey

I got diagnosed on a Monday morning in early April 2004. I remember it well. The weekend just before I had been on a shamanism intro with the Sacred Trust. We were doing journey work to connect with our power animal. I met and got absorbed by a dead shark (which in truth freaked me […]

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 […]

Happy New Year 2014.

   As another New Year arrives I ruminate on the fact that it is more or less ten years ago to the day that my body has been dealing with unwanted cellular creativity. NYE 2004 was spent in the amazing city of Barcelona at a rocking New Years Eve underground warehouse rave put on by […]

Fear is Power.

So I bought a one way ticket to the Jaws of Hell. It was quite easy and cheap. Le Gouffre d’Enfer can be reached with minimum fuss via Easy Jet and an hour car drive from Lyon. For those of you who know my predilection for the strange and the perverse this is probably no surprise. Yet […]

Rock and Roll, Sticks and Stoners

I had decided that after 18 years of being more or less totally straight edge I was going to spend the summer as a stoner. And what a summer for it! Sizzling, hot and stoned! Ever present sometimes more attention seeking than other times the cancer I have been working with for 9 amazing years […]

2013 – From Dreams to Reality.

    I have been dreaming of far off shores and overseas climes – Thailand to be precise. Not that I have ever been before. 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 […]
