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...

I was in a hurry today. But it was hard to be. 
My walk was too nice, too much  sun and birds were flying and singing. 
But I had a deadline, an important document that needed to be done by 9am. 
But seriously how can you not stop and smell...

Inverse Tree

I start a lot of presentations about science with a tree . 

With its branches being areas of knowledge, and what we do as a PhD the tips of the branches. Other people I think talk about how knowledge moves from these thick trucks of solidified stuff, and built on...

The Sky Doesn't Close

The sky doesn't close.
And we should know because we chased down too many sun sets, even though they were as empty as the end of a rainbow. 
Over and over again, and what was it 10 k?
Even if its raining there is still an opening. 
You can see if...

Blue Zones

I thought I had a profound idea yesterday. One line of something like wherever you are your there. Or a sweeping generalisation that works for the stage of life I am in. Like something good you could put on Instagram and people would direct message their best friend with. But...

First Time Drinking

I was going to write last night but now going to this morning. Last night I got drunk so now I am paying for it in a hangover. Sad. 

It was different than when I first got drunk. 
This time we sat around a table drinking wine and cocktails and...

On a Train again

On a train again. There are people heading home mostly. From London and further. Telling their family members on the phone to turn on the hot water. And set the laundry out they’ll do it when they get back.

One guy is in a nice suit. Asking someone on the phone...

Bird by Bird

I recommend everyone to read Bird by Bird, so much so that I will make it into a tag. 
Bird by Bird If you want to write nice stories, its great, she gives you ideas and really pushes you to write honest and authentic things.

But even if you just...

I went to that museum you always told me to go to. They were showing letters of Charles Darwin]] . He watched birds on one part of an island and then another part and noticed that the  birds changed to their environment. They were interested in how he was feeling...

Bottom Floor Blues

I hear your foot steps thumping. 
And your bath tub leaking. 
I hear your boyfriend humping. 
And your bed frame creaking. 

I've got the bottom floor blues. 
and Im trapped in a cave. 
I've got the bottom floor blues.
Only a lease can save. 

There are more cobwebs than spiders.

A spare Battery

I just need a battery. My mouse I think might be broken its a doing a thing where it just scrolls, you can use it, until you open anything then it proceeds to scroll in and out, and I don't know it seems random. Or like someone else is controlling...
