Grey-Haired Revelations

Another birthday has come and gone, the (not very many) remnants of sponge cake are discarded into the bin, and I am left contemplating time yet again. Not just the speed at which it passes, but the degree to which…

Ravenous Comfort

You may or may not know, dear reader, that I had been experiencing somewhat of a challenging period of late. My previous entry described some inner-conflict at play; morale dilemmas formed by my own hand, and tough decisions that I…
