taboo

My first thought was tattoo not taboo and I can’t get the vivid images of tattoos out of my mind! But focussing on taboo – well, very little seems to be taboo these days doesn’t it? Does that make me sound very old!? It is just that personal lives and shocking headlines are everywhere!

miracle

My nephew is a miracle. It is a simple and as truly wonderful as that. My nephew is beautiful. I am never happier than when I watch him gurgle and writhe happily on his play mat or when he looks at me through his wide, glassy clear eyes- the deep pools. And I wonder what he can really see.

want

I want to be better organised with my time. I want the sun to come out but I don’t want it to be as opressive as yesterday. I want to be slimmer and more agile and energetic. I want to have a better memory. I want to write more. I want to be able to sing better.

festival

Beer, friends, music, good times, bad times, drunk times. Some of my best musical experiences are from festivals, e.g. my first Gogol Bordello gig.

crush

Yes – this word is still used in this way… ‘She has a bit of a crush on him,’ ‘I had a massive crush on that 80’s pop band.’ Crush. We crush ice. We crush eachother as we squees onto the tube…

station

The station in Shropshire after the workshop was so isolated. It felt like we were on a film set. There were no screens telling as the times of trains, no staff and no phone. And our mobiles had no signal! Would not have wanted to be there alone – especially after dark! There always seems to be green benches on these types of platforms. And one sheltered seated area where everyone huddles to keep out of the wind and rain. And chewing gum. Always chewing gum stuck to the bench. Stations placed amongst stunning scenery.

forgetting

I forget people’s names & it drives me mad. I forget details that people tell me sometimes & that drives me mad too. But some things, some days – some words that have been spoken to me – I never forget. There is no fear of forgetting a certain emotional chord that has been struck, a meaningful smile or an embrace.

chalkboard

Ah – chalkboards seem to be only used for retro affect now (except by my dad – who uses a small board on his kitchen wall to write his reminder list with white chalk!). Makes me think of the third year at junior school copying off the board and realising how short sighted I was.

remember

I remember the rain earlier – pounding on the brand new surprise skylight in our hallway and the bedroom window. A dark shadow had come over the room and I felt both dragged down by it and also comforted – as I was safe and dry inside.

forgotten

There is so much that isn’t forgotten and our memories surprise us every day – flashing across our minds when we least expect it. Sometimes it is as if we were watching a movie – a slow motion movie of our own lives, full of laughter and tears.

intersection

It makes me think of the USA when I hear this word. Intersection. It is very succint isn’t it? Crossroads. Junction. Lots of options & different directions in which to go. Some could be life changing, some more subtle.

ego

Ah – ego. Surely we all have one? Even if we are the type to be self doubting and questioning. Too much ego is seen negatively – verging on arrogance. ‘Inflated ego’ makes me picture a huge boiled egg.

wanted

The things that she wanted then were different from now. Or were they? Perhaps she was simply less aware then. The things she wanted as she walked down the street looking in the shop windows today, were not the things that can be bought. But sometimes wanting is fruitless – as the ‘getting’ is such a challenge.

wander

I often day dream about wandering around landscapes – imagined locations and those I have been before, returning to them and soaking in their magic once again. To wonder & to wander…time to make time.

obsessed

This makes me think of so many incidents and people that I don’t know where to begin. Maybe I will start with a particular friend (who shall remain nameless) who still laughs at the both of us being ‘obsessed,’ with a particular rock star (who will also remain nameless!) since we were 15 years old – and we are now almost 40!

bee

My sister got stung by a bee, or perhaps it was a wasp but let’s pretend it was a bee for the purposes of the story! It was a scorching hot summer’s day in the 70’s and my sister was in her buggy. My mum was distracted by my school teacher who chatted to her and my sister got stung on the lip. My mum never liked that teacher anyway!

outlet

We all need an outlet. I remember standing on the corner of our street with my neighbour – she was a couple of years older than me. Without warning, she gave the loudest, highest pitched scream I have ever heard. It seemed to last for a really long time and probably scared our cat who was sleeping by the radiator!

furnace

Unimaginable heat. Travelling through a tunnel of raging flames. Deafening roar. The only light is that of the dancing orange vapour.

sports

Sports – not something that I associate myself with. Sports makes me think of large men on sofas, glued to Match of the Day – in particular the Sunday morning repeats. An ex in particular, shushing me if I dare spoke during the holy experience!

train

i love riding on a train and used to do this when i had just graduated from high school and had a job downtown. The train was just down the block from my house.

adore

i adore the seasons and the changes that come along with life. i adore the way that the unexpected has beauty in itself. Questions surround all of us.
