Dying Inside A COVID Straight-Jacket

Life Terror. Ecstasy. Fight. Denial. Flight. Failure. Forgiveness. Reconciliation. Hope. Love. Peace – Death.


Time is precious.

More so if you are restricted in what you can do with it.

The clock’s ticking….

My clock is ticking faster and faster

What would you do if circumstances allowed you to do literally anything you wanted to do, money no object …..go for it? The only (imposed) restriction, is time.

Many of us would go visit our ‘bucket list’ locations? But you can’t.

Drive our dream car, touring the country visiting friends and family? But you can’t.

Do ‘more’ of the things you love doing the most, music, the arts, entertainment. But you can’t.

Do ‘your job’ that you love. That gives you purpose. That gives you satisfaction. But you can’t.

But you can’t…..

I now have three incredible grandsons, Henderson, Fennec and just days ago Nate. I Love people. I love my family, my incredible friends, I have love(d) what I do (my Job), I love Music, Glastonbury Festival, Cars, Everton .... I love many things but, most of all, I fucking love life.
