All the world's a stage: complex characters having continual entrances and exits. Some scripts, simple and uninviting, yet the characters are constant, such that you can expect similar behaviour throughout scenes. There is no mystery there. Some scripts jump off of the page and burn themselves into your mind. These characters force you to the … Continue reading The hero’s journey.

Have you ever just been hit for six? You know, like in cricket... but not in cricket? Like your life force just left your body and went walkabout; like your chin snapped around and right back: knock out. The most ordinary of circumstances, energised with something. That something that really leaves you feeling hit for … Continue reading Getting hit for six.

Familiar face, unfamiliar place; something similar, can't quite put my finger on it. Pupil dilation, licking of the lips: oh, would you like a glass of water? Ease and comfort, a peculiar feeling. It's probably nothing, statistically speaking; the rational mind agrees. And yet, the feeling body, the intuitive sense, it does detect: but what? … Continue reading attaboy.
A house doesn't build itself, no matter how much you envision. But only a plot of land until you till the soil, until you lay foundation, til' you sweat and toil.

As soon as you conquer a mountain and raise a trophy, now others see you differently. They project their own inadequacies onto you and try and cut you off at the … Continue reading I’m tired of being humble.
Competition is a silly business. Joining a category of many, standardisation of rules and aims, and let the gladiators do battle, trade blows, fatten balance sheets and crash equity prices. Nay, I disagree; what a pointless game: why compete? Why not create your own category and be the sole player, in a category of one … Continue reading Category of one.
I am chaos embodied, I know not the rhythm of stability. All of my life, chaos around me; an inability to organise my thoughts. Movement with breath, a bulwark against the storm.
