Drew last shared their writing Like a Rolling Stone
I read today that Bob Dylan, or just Bob if I can call him that. Wrote 10 pages, just to get to the line like a rolling stone. This then exploded outward, and he added verses and choruses to make the song we know now. But before that, it was...

Sono una Pippa

In italian you can call yourself a handjob if you feel like your bad at something. Today I think I am a handjob, the weekend was too long, and I am not focused. Feels like I lost the momentum I had been building for awhile. Annoyingly, this makes dealing with...

In the mouth of the wolf

For one reason or another I was talking to a friend about phrases. Not English ones but ones we liked it other languages and wished were in English although I do wonder what a native speaker would think of our word choice or maybe they don’t care. One of them...

Amsterdam (fiction)

We moved to Amsterdame in the 90s before it was cool. We were lucky to get a house near a canal. It’s nice place for the kids . And  for us too. We made it look nice planting flowers around the front. And we don’t really have a front garden...

Thoughts from Running

It’s spring time now in England. There’s flowers and I’ll take a picture some day. Or draw a picture I save up money for lessons but then I didn’t really go. Well I went here and there, the more important thing was consistency. I wondered what the consistency of jello...

New Normal

He started lately noticing things weren't the same. The stairs used to be easy to climb, and weren't so oddly shaped. And he went to the store it didn't seem like such a big deal. Now there is a bit more there than what used to be, and I guess...

Glasses

Today I saw a pair of sunglasses and they reminded me of my grandpa’s they were my partners grandfathers. And although he lived in Italy and my grandfather in America they looked definitely like the glasses of a grandpa. 

This made me think when does a thing become part of...

Drinking Alone

I’m in Italy right now. One of the most noticeable things besides the different language and everyone is tan, is how people drink.

 It’s never really just drinking on its own, there has to be food involved or friends. You don’t go to the bar just to have a pint....

Ode to the Radio

The radio  is something I now take for granted. With Spotify or Apple Music always around. I can choose whatever I want. But there is something nice about the radio. People you don’t know talk about things they kind of know about. And then they play music that’s popular at...

A Coffee

We arrived I think tired the weather was worse than expected especially for a beach. The water tossed and turned and the waves brought sea weed in piles so big that you would have cross it like a small gate in a field. Around the wind moved sand into your...

Volcano

Today I hiked a volcano. Which is like a mountain that can change under your feet. But it doesn’t usually. I get why people way back would think there are dragons at the top. All the smoke. The strange smells earthquakes. No earthquakes when we were there, but it’s activity...
