Corrosive Shame

Therapy for Life

"Why does the helping hand carry a gun?"

"Does god stay in heaven because he is afraid of what he created here on Earth?"

Subversion is inevitable.

Firstly: Friends policy. Please don't get offended if I don't add you back - it just means that I'm notoriously fickle and like the surprise of going through journals occasionally. I don't always rush into such relationshops as I'm trying to keep a handle on the number on my list. I only very rarely post Friends-only so what there is, you can see.

This journal is somewhere between where I am, and where I want to be.

"There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, where the sea is asleep and the rivers dream; people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there's danger, somewhere there's injustice, and somewhere else the tea is getting cold."

My ego is my weakness, and I'm a self-confessed information junkie. I also find it very difficult to admit that I'm wrong, and prefer to get angry and go on the defensive.

Anchored in Birmingham after brief flirtations with Oxford and a regular date with London, seeking out new and exciting forms of chocolate. Contemplating new and interesting ways of attention seeking that don't involve fast-food packaging.

"I hope for nothing. I fear nothing. I am free."

Oh, and Kneeshooter doesn't mean I have anything against knees. Instead it refers to a time, before lots of practice, where I couldn't hit he side of a barn in a FPS. Some people were very good at headshots; I was lucky to hit anything...

"Now I call them photographers and I'm being kind because any idiot can shoot live with a flash gun - there is no skill to it and it doesn't make you a photographer. Well, thats my camera lesson for today..." Ross Halfin, September 2005

"Do not despise the snake for having no horns, for who is to say it will not become a dragon?"
