Chapter 88: Fanny Fan Out – Poetry: The Oracle Pythia

The Oracle Pythia – Poetry. This is an ode to the delightful What’s Her Name pod-casters who transported me to ancient Greece during a recent solo commute to Albany. This episode was truly captivating. I cannot recommend these auditory magicians enough if you are… Continue Reading “Chapter 88: Fanny Fan Out – Poetry: The Oracle Pythia”

Chapter 87: Winging It

Or – my life as a chicken wing buffet. The term “winging it” for me has been more of a life ethos I fell into for the sheer reasons of survival. When you’re not particularly bright and naive as a box full of puppies,… Continue Reading “Chapter 87: Winging It”

Chapter 86: Too many dicks on the blog floor

…and why this is the greatest song ever written or performed. Disclaimer: Proceed with caution.

Whilst the trend is becomming more popular online, particularly… Continue Reading “Chapter 85: Eff You em – en – em — dash”

Chapter 78: Poetry: When I was a Witch

Poetry Exercise. Trying to creatively express some current interests without being so over the top obvious. Failing badly. I’m either subtle as a rodeo hippo or so cryptic that on a re-read even I don’t know what the hell I’m waffling about. To help… Continue Reading “Chapter 78: Poetry: When I was a Witch”

Chapter 77: Poetry Then & Now…Part 2

Writers group is great for my mental health, not so much for my ever expanding arse – the nibbles are first rate. Tonight we were treated to a delightful host, delightful poetry, classical, beautiful words in intricate covers and pages. I read the Jabberwocky… Continue Reading “Chapter 77: Poetry Then & Now…Part 2”

Chapter 76: Poetry Now & Then

Writers Group Session – Poetry. Tonight we will have our poetry critiqued as well as reading out our personal favourites. I’ve got some cliched classics I enjoyed as a child and a teen as well as some new discoveries. I realise the featured image… Continue Reading “Chapter 76: Poetry Now & Then”

Chapter 74: When God was Femme

Fangirl poetry inspired by real life heroine – Dr Bettany Hughes. Her documentary – When God was a Girl is inspirational. A fascinating and in-depth flip of history and how the past has shaped who we are and why many of the issues we… Continue Reading “Chapter 74: When God was Femme”
