When Relationships Print An Expiry Date

There is a special, chilling kind of silence you can hear, the sound when love is sucked out instantly from a previously warm and amicable situation. It’s the electrical wires, buzzing with heightened intensity. The throbbing of the walls. The coldness in the wind against the windows. Concern and naive, but tender, sympathy from the four eyes of two cats, who, with little else to monitor in their leisurely lives, can sense a...

The Baltic Journey Resumes, Take II

Our apartment in Warsaw, with two sofabeds, kitchen, bathroom – only €25 Writing from a cafe in the capital, Warsaw. A month-long Tinder date has greatly inspired and brought depth of introspection. The process to transition from a career developing and supporting technology, to one of writing, the arts, and social change, is underway. Inner peace, constant Zen, and regularly enjoying every single moment. Spending time with...
