It’s a monkey’s life! Rude quote…


Those at the bottom want to be on top, but when they get there, they tend to forget how it felt to be down there.

Have a great week.

Below is my first just published Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.

Out of the silent breath

Expose my heart

that I may understand your words

through every conscious,

awakened pore of each moment.


*an excerpt from my poem*


Lost In Thought…Friday Fiction In Five Sentences.

Ted was bored, angry and tired. He hated his job, the drudgery and his boss.

Every morning, he would get all dressed up, knotted in stitches by the strictures of his tie, suit and briefcase, yet he trudged along, a pack of analgesic and pepto-bismol tucked away in his bag. He would have gone through a bit of them before the day was over.

He knew that he couldn’t continue like this in such a dull job. He had told himself this for the past ten years, yet he was too lethargic and scared to sit up and do something.

Lost in thoughts over his quandary, his movements were spare and automated as he walked down his usual route to catch the bus.

He stepped into the pedestrian crossing, just a few seconds too early. He had failed to see the flashing change of the lights and the truck that trundled down at high speed.

Everyday Beautiful People #1….

Nothing catches my interest like ordinary people going about their normal life.

Over time, I have taken so many photos of others.

I find humans of all walks of life beautiful and fascinating

Some have inspired stories in my head and some have roused curiosity to want to know more, but there’s so much you can get to know 🙂
