Respond to pure love

Respond to pure love

No place I should be

I need a cold life

Intimacy free

Give me unfeeling

Unnerving and hard

Show me the dark bits
Play the cunt card

Toe in the water

Fuck with a head

Try drivin’ stuff crazy

Turn crazy instead

Inconsistent reactions

To whatever they do

Convinced it will be

To good to be true

Treat scorn with a look

With a smile to say

Reflect the depressed

Lightness and gay

Know that the thoughts

Of defeat and despair

Are readily flipped

to the joy of the share

ease into contentment

open your heart like a door

give and receive

like never before

Today reads yesterday

Careful what you wish for
You might just get it
Slowly hold the prize
Then you start to dread it
When it was a dream
You shaped it as you want
Now it’s in the flesh
Trade it for the cunt
Request the deal again
Losing grace along the way
It all seems so familiar
Today reads yesterday
Played this game before
As you learnt to walk
Don’t mean what you say
Draw your dreams in chalk
Wash the chalk away
With tears you help create
Worthless waste of time
I deserve my fate
Retreating to my cave
A spanner in the mix
Open up myself
To see what I can fix
Firstly feel the pain
Truth becomes my friend
Truly love myself
No action to defend
Accepting who I am
Respect my fragile way
Give myself the room
To show that I’m o.k.

Have mentioned the word this week in passing as i need to kit up with some velour action for a Sat night gathering, Sixties and sexual or sensual connotations are reflected.Zapp Brannigan of "Brannigans law" fame has a lot to answer for!

taking a friend to choir practice then leave 'em to it.

Monday, March 14, 2011


a public holiday today and on waking i saw balloons silently floating amongst the clouds and the lack of noise that normally accompanies the working day, this was manifested by no sounds of traffic that are generated by all trying to get to work on time. As i had a friend sleeping over we slowly roused and decided to cycle down to a local cafe for a lovely latte before returning for a cooked brekky featuring fresh laid Bantam eggs with bacon,'shrooms and a lovely green salad.

I have been jolted into action with eminent arrivals and  constant yet unpredictable comings and goings, to cast my critical eye over form and function in my bedroom/office I have shuffled some stuff around. Not completely satisfied but i am sure feedback will follow. i must continue to grow and adapt to all that is happening.  a smile and the occasional skip seem to balance the more pensive moments as i lurch forwardish.

Party Time

Two 40th b'day parties in two weeks, 1 down 1 to go. Party was ok the date was brilliant. a soup, a rest and a beer or 3  was just what was needed. One cider was ample for me but hey that's the kinda guy i am.

Bats abound

The fruit bats that circle the suburbs are on the move.different sizes at different heights find the abundance of Fig trees a nice place to visit and a great place to sleep .Sweet brekky in bed. Go bats The boy sat out the back a cpl of days back and watched the bats with his Batman t-shirt on. The irony wasn't lost on me.

the daily grind

My working days are so different in so many different ways i cannot ever just think of it as same shit different bucket. the new and challenging situations that arise daily make me thankful of what i do and thinkful (new word?) of how i will do it.   Fuck i love my life

Judgement day

It seems like this day comes around weekly of late. And if others are to judge i will sit on my hands and listen to the verdict, As these days come around on a regular basis if i don't agree with the verdict i will just wait for the next series of deliberations.  just call me soft option Steve today.

tough day at the office

Today i earned my money stuff flying around which i refused to catch and call my own, Happy to let others own their behaviour, one shinning light through all the shit that went down was the cafe in Prahran where we had a drink a smoke and a chat, "Eugenius" 99 Hornby St run by Eugene what a fucking legend easy going accommodating  and as non judgmental as a Cafe owner could possibly wish to be. So as WW3 is starting to erupt around him he remained supercool. If you are ever in the area look him up and the Artwork was a reflection of his coolness.

i think the penny dropped

and after dropping a penny there is no need to bend down to pick it up rather be the one that hears the sound as it hits the ground and rolls just out of sight .So i have heard the noise and will consider the impact of the impact.

another day another day

Anniversaries mean different things to different people 1day, week, month , year or even a lifetime the anniversary like Birthdays take us back to the point of origin and give us the chance to reflect on how life has moved on since the genesis of said anniversary i choose not to look back to often as it serves little purpose 'cept to draw the eye and mind away from the present and the present is where my best is situated . So look back if you must project forward if the needs dictate but don't ever remove yourself from the present.

happy daze

Brilliant day with highlights to numerous to mention but the boy showed what gentle natured person he is and that is joy to witness.

from the phone

 It has become a bit of a tradition when the Boy visits for the weekend, brekky,then see off our friend as she goes to work. i clean up the dishes while he plays games on the phone before we go for a wander down the street, visit Bakery where he gets a Finger Bun then walk to Jordies i order and enjoy a large strong Latte  while he consumes the Bun then we walk home chatting about the world and all things related. Tis a beautiful thing.We have a Barbie to attend where he will catch up with all his city friends that he hasn't seen in ages.The sun is shining and it is a fucking great day to be alive.

Fuck Yeah!

Ralph Waldo Emerson
"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

A ruffled mind makes a restless pillow. - Charlotte Bronte

tough gig

Been a harrowing few days with terrible texts being sent to all but me yet i seemed to get roped into procedings and the time has come for me to jump or flop on one side of the other. i can't sit on the fence any longer and although i hate taking sides seems the schoolyard mantra that you can't be his friend and mine has been bandied about, i have recieved perspectives from ppl whose opinions i value and i need to make a decision based on a combination of heart and head. so it is with a heavy heart i am quickly coming to the point of no return where friendships may be terminated. It has been over a year since Torchie has come out to burn a friend and the bridges that lead to reconcilliation and as this missive indicates it is not something i do lightly, but when i do there is no turning back so i need to be sure it is what needs to be done.Currently my smile feels like a grimace and i cant go through life like that so the time is nigh.
