I am an experienced writer who has worked across a variety of mediums including: screenplay, script editing, prose, poetry,and novelization. I am particularly interested in psychogeography and the scope it gives both academics and creative writers to effectively trade elements of their fields.

Sleepwalking into leadership

Mar. 14, 2012 7:30 am
Categories: None

Anyone interested in humanity and the natural world should avoid politics and commercial science. And big business, corporations, etc etc. Cliches perhaps. Within cliches often lies the kernel of the whole muddy affair. Karl Marx. Unpublished. Notional. Unknown date.

Nick talked and I smoked. 19 to the dozen. Cigarettes and anecdotes. Time well spent. Between drags on the old toxin we moved through 400 years of poetry, 3500 years of history, 100 years of Irish literature and 3 litres of numbing cider. The science came later. As did the politics, best avoided whilst drunk. Happy days. Sobriety was overrated then. Until Nick finally and suddenly ceased. I quit the smokes, the painkillers but not the booze. That was my only treat. And treated from then on in as such. The body is a reliable engine, open to an amount of abuse, but only a finite amount. Not a day goes by when I don't think and feel down about Nick. He's been added to a pantheon of friends and family, often indistinguishable who has gone from this planet leaving a beautiful legacy behind for us survivors. Rare, that.

BestThinking to be Updated this Weekend

If all goes well you will see a change in the layout of BestThinking's Home and Category pages. Topics & Articles and Blogs & Books will no longer be shown in two separate columns.

All 4 content types (Articles, Blogs, Books, and Topics) will be Featured Content together as one continuous stream, although the column structure - one wide and one narrow - will remain the same. The first (wide) column will now flow into the second (narrow) column. This change is in response to Blogs becoming as important a content type as Articles and Topics. This will also give Featured Content more time on the Home page which is helpful regarding search engines indexing this content.
