A few blogposts ago, I mentioned that I intended to raise charity money for Mind. I think it’s coming together. There’ll likely be a blogpost fairly soon which answers the bloggers dilemma about reviews and honesty and personal gain and what you can do with a blog when interfacing with marketing bods and all that sorta stuff…. and I have plans and plans for Cafe Akto – although I may need some help – anybody available Easter Sunday, armed with cakes, ready for a high (ish) level overnight and the ability to carry volumes of fresh water….? In the meantime, in support of Mind and trying to understand mental health – here’s a pome from my pal who’s a pote. Its not easy, is it…? I’ve not asked for permission. he might like to comment…. or p’raps not…. Where Am I? It’s boiling hot and stuffy I cannot open the windows in Summer Midges would bite me to death I lie on my bed I see two flashing red lights Is it the tail lights of an aeroplane? I occasionally see a helicopter outside Are they coming to take me away? Am I ill? I’m supposed to be a member of the community Living in the community With the community But four walls hem me in Periodically alarms go off I get woken up at 8 o’clock Told to go to bed at 12 midnight I share a kitchen and washing facilities There’s a shared television room A shared pool car I know where I am I wish I wasn’t here I wish I was in a normal situation I wish I was in control I wish I was in control of where I was
I am a retired NHS Personnel person. All I do nowadays is walk about.
I used to have my pet dog Bruno with me (in the front page pic). he was Superdawg but he died. Now I have Lucky the pup. He's a bit like Bruno, only smaller and more suspicious.
