52and40/8 Spirit Level

I’ve known folk who did everything for change and, at the end of short and happy lives, died.

When change moves at a glacial pace it’s hard to know what the point is.

I think the point is to make your life a laughing one full of hopeful risks and challenged potential anyway, even if the only payback is a clear conscience.

A clear conscience is a radiant experience, after all.

Change is drip-fed right up till the millisecond the damn breaks against the pressure.

52and39/20 Kingfisher Karma

Last year, around summertime, I fixed on the idea that 2014 would be my year to see a Kingfisher again.  Cheesy?  Maybe.

I’ve only seen one once before, in childhood.  The rarity of the sighting was impressed upon me excitedly.

In 2014, the memory of the Irn Bru glitter ball bird of tiny glory came back to me.

I invented some whimsical folklore in my head that I’d see one again soon, thus meaning that the heavens would be aligned, the cosmos cleansed, and the laundry tamed, etc.

So, erm, 2015 for sure, right?
