    i wish a was a fisherman
    sailing out at sea
    breathing in the cool fresh air
    and feeling completely free

    swinging from the rafters
    hanging
    like a monkey moving from one tree to the next
    he’s an idiot

  • Rochelle commented on the post, doubled 5 years, 8 months ago

    I can’t write, no thoughts, for ages. Wrong. Loads of thoughts, too many thoughts, so many thoughts my hands can’t type fast enough. What to write? Something about doubled… my frustration has more than doubled. Ughh

  • Rochelle commented on the post, vines 6 years, 6 months ago

    If I had a million grape vines I would be so intensely happy for the rest of my life. I would eat grapes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In between feasting, I would work hard to create delectable wines. And I would drink them. With breakfast, lunch and dinner.

  • Rochelle commented on the post, plague 6 years, 6 months ago

    Chocolate plague. You can’t hide from it. It will catch you eventually. You will eat. You can’t help it. It’s everywhere. And then you will get fat and maybe you will even die from it.

  • Rochelle commented on the post, bronze 6 years, 6 months ago

    Bronze. I was hoping it was going to be a colour actually, as I wanted to write about all the beautiful colours I saw today. It was such a beautiful day. So much sun, blue skies, butterflies everywhere. I watched a leaf cutter bee carve a perfect semi circle in a leaf and fly off with it. But I didn’t see any bronze.

  • Rochelle commented on the post, end 6 years, 9 months ago

    Is it the end of the relationship? Is that the end of the story? Will time tell? Or shall I just end it now, instead of waiting to see if time will tell?

  • Rochelle commented on the post, placed 6 years, 9 months ago

    She placed one foot reluctantly in front of the other. The cat followed. He loved this time of morning, but she dreaded it. “Quack quack quack quack quack!” They saw her coming and began having their usual excitement attack. She lowered the fresh water and food into the ducklings’ cage and then began the arduous and stinky job of cleaning up…[Read more]

    Are you available to meet with me for a drink this week?
    -No.
    How about next week?
    -No, think I’m busy then.
    Ok, well, how about sometime after xmas. I know things are pretty hectic at the moment!
    -Yes I think I’m busy then too.
    Right, well how about you suggest a time then? I’m easy and can do whenever you want.
    – How about never?
    Oh,…[Read more]

  • Rochelle commented on the post, higher 6 years, 10 months ago

    Higher education. To study or not to study. Most of her twenties was spent feeling inadequate because everyone else around her had a degree. Meeting new people was daunting. The question was inevitably asked, “so where did you go to university?”. Ahh, I didn’t. Now the opportunity has presented itself, but she doesn’t know if she would be…[Read more]

  • Rochelle commented on the post, turbine 7 years, 3 months ago

    I was about to begin a story of drama. A story of injustice, heart ache, pain, suffering, fear and loneliness. And then I realised the word was “turbine”, not, “turban”.

  • Rochelle commented on the post, overalls 7 years, 3 months ago

    My uncle is a painter. Not like an artist type painter, but an interior decorator type painter. I remember when I was young he came over in his overalls and painted and wallpapered our house. It was the first […]

  • Rochelle commented on the post, saturday 7 years, 3 months ago

    It is Saturday! But I have to work. Not that I’m that bothered to be honest as I feel I need to get out of the house. I try to avoid people too much. I like to live out in the country, with only the sound of […]

  • Rochelle commented on the post, hoop 7 years, 8 months ago

    Hoops. They called him Hoops. His last name was Hooper. Everyone loved him because he was such a nice guy, and so did I. Our relationship flourished until he got bored and banged the town bike. Such a nice guy, really.

  • Rochelle commented on the post, deserve 7 years, 10 months ago

    “I deserve better than this!” she screamed. But really, who is she? Some kind of queen? Why does she deserve something better than the rest of us? Sometimes shite happens in life and you just have to deal with it. Stuff happens for a reason. Usually, it happens to challenge your boundaries, beliefs and tolerance. […]

  • Rochelle commented on the post, shepherd 7 years, 12 months ago

    My boyfriend isn’t a shepherd, but he is a real country boy. Can I city-fy him? He seems intent on resisting it. Perhaps it’s because he feels intimidated by city people? Let’s face it, the mentality is totally different. I don’t want to completely city-fy him, just open his mind a little bit… that’s all….

  • Rochelle commented on the post, spring 8 years ago

    “I want to be with you when spring comes”, he said. She knew she was in love with him after that. He was everything she wanted. As it happened, spring came and they enjoyed watching the changing landscape together. Their relationship, which had began very suddenly and had taken them both by surprise, blossomed in […]

  • Rochelle commented on the post, forgotten 8 years, 5 months ago

    She’d forgotten her roots. Forgotten where she came from. Forgotten who she was. Forgotten what her life was all about and where it was supposed to be going. So, she packed her bags and left. She got the next flight out to Auckland and suddenly found herself there in the airport wondering what the heck […]

  • Rochelle commented on the post, bandana 8 years, 5 months ago

    She had accidentally left her blue bandana in Sydney and felt like she’d lost a child. That bandana symbolised so much. Freedom. Freedom and errrr, well that’s about it really. She remembered driving around in the van, all over Australia wearing that bandana. The window down, a cool breeze and a vast orange nothingness all […]

  • Rochelle commented on the post, chorus 8 years, 5 months ago

    “The choir boys did my head in after a while. It was great to see all the celebs and the dress and all the pomp but what’s with all the singing? And why do they have young boys singing the high notes, instead of girls, who naturally sing high notes? I couldn’t wait for the […]
