Back To The Grind..


Just a few words to let let you know I'm back from the wilderness and will be posting here within the next few days.As I'd been writing constantly during the past 4 years I thought/felt it was time to take a break from that nonsense and have a proper rest from it all where words and sentences and themes were not my first waking thoughts. As many of you know the actual process of writing for me is just a nightmare. I've never enjoyed the physical  act of getting these words down, and really only do it from a desperation to say the things my mouth has never been able to. Anyway, there you have it: I'm in from out the cold.

The upcoming  post will almost certainly be a set of four or five little texts, each one concerning thoughts and sadnesses  which have been plaguing me since the end of last year. One of the pieces will pick up on the last post here, though rather than addressing what happens POST-junk it will focus on the PRE-junk dawn... my last year of sober living.

Until then... Watch this Space... Shane; x

Look forward to whatever.

Part of me thought I should comment/email about your 'absence'. All 5 weeks or so!

But having been absent for some very great time myself writing-wise and hating it when people ask about it I decided not to.

I mean you shouldn't have to think you're on a schedule or anything.

It's always a pleasure to see new writings from yourself.

Oh thank christ on a stick. I have missed you. I am sorry writing is so grueling for you but I can certainly understand.

February is one of my least favourite things. I'm happy to see you're back though, my night seems to be getting better. There's even cookies!

Even though i know, now, that writing's a pain to you but i cant resist myself from welcoming you back. Looking forward to reading your words which always make me "feel".

I look forward to your next posts. I only recently came across your blog, in fact I also found myself anxiously waiting to see if you would be back after reading your last post and the comments after it that suggested people were concerned not to hear from you. There is something tenacious yet also somehow fragile that comes across in your writing and am so in awe at your capacity to write so brilliantly and so honestly.
