I was 24-Ish anyway. I don’t know. Somewhere around there… I had long hair. To hide in.

and here is…!

Paul’s guide to weeping on public transport

-Board public transport

-Slowly become aware that said transport is proceeding in the wrong direction, indeed in the opposite direction to your home. This should happen well in into the journey.

-Lose all track of where you are (particularly in relation to home/loved ones. “Loved ones” inclusive of goldfish and shoes.)

-Take stock of finances, also continued validity of tcket/pass. When assured of insolvency and imminent ticket expiry, go to next step.

-Commence breathing difficulties.

-Become highly agitated.

-Alarm and terrify elderly and children in vicinity via such agitation, to preculde possible aid in reaching sanctuary.

-Become frightened.

-

- …

-Despair.

-Commence weeping *

*This will not actually help in any way.

HI EVERYBODY!!
I have been writing my novel, which is so exciting i made my cat throw up last chapter I finished. Um… I spun her around saying “YAY!” too much. so i haven’t been painting anywhere near as much as i like to. (I’ve also been realllllllly sick. oh well.) Apart from painting I have a side-line in cat straightening – an uncommon skill that i learned in a dzong in Bhutan.

    You have captured a “life” image. A courageous and powerful work

    Damn. I remember when I was in early recovery from being a totally fucked up addict. My brain was so fried, I used to get on a bus without checking where it was going. I just assumed it knew where i wanted to go. I got to see some interesting places, and even, sometimes, got where I was supposed to be. I think some people live their life like that. x Brave work Paul.
