Oh dear, the countries of the world are not playing well together


The Kid loves watching Peppa Pig. 
The Kid learns stuff from Peppa Pig. 
Maybe this teaches the Kid how about peace and harmony in the world.

“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.” -  Anais Nin via

The worst thing

It's the worst thing to wake up to a bright sunny morning, feeling useless, dark, and helpless.
For five consecutive days. And counting? 


Good things happen. Enjoy, and let go.
Unpleasant things happen. Learn, and let go.

Writing this as I feel a mixture of elation and dread at finding myself enjoying someone's company too much, that it gives me hope that something casual can evolve into something deeper and lasting. I dread the possibility of having to face yet another rejection later on.

And then, this:

“Learning to let go should be learned before learning to get. Life should be touched, not strangled. You’ve got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it.” - Ray Bradbury

Train hopping

“I’ve always found it a romantic notion to sort of like the old man in the sea, it’s you the train and the weather and you’re out there and it’s cold and you’re clinging to life. There’s always been this romantic notion with being sort of on the brink of death but finding that bit of comfort.” - Shawn, a train hopper
