Mural Man, new years resolve!

27 12 2010

There is something about this time of year that makes me drift towards the philosophical. I was minding my own business the other day, writing about ADHD and focus, sipping coffee and listening to the radio with half an ear. As I listened in that distant way, I misheard a song. Can’t say what that song was but I noted what I’d misheard. “Mural Man …”. I knew it was wrong, but I let my mind wander with it. Where did it go …? My mind came up with this life analogy.

20 12 2010

On the Road Again

30 11 2010

Okay, I’ve blogged about driving, and we’ve come to the conclusion that I’m a great driver but the roads are all crooked and everyone else on them isn’t watching where I’m going. I know you’re all working on that, some of you may be improving a little – we’ll see how that goes. Read the rest of this entry »





Fitting into the colony …

22 11 2010

I finally watched ANTZ, for the first time. Sorry, I don’t always run out to see the latest movie, and besides I didn’t think I would like it. Was I right? You decide. Read the rest of this entry »
