Category Archives: Blog
I’ve been reading a lot of online blogs by other people who’ve lost their brothers, and the thing is, I’ve found them helpful. Way more helpful than the idea of talking to a counsellor or a group of people, because when I need help it tends to be in the morning when I’ve had a nightmare or can’t sleep. I hope maybe this blog will be helpful for others, too.
I’m writing a book right now which is about a small island in the South Pacific. In particular I’m very interested in the sense of romance which drove anthropologists, missionaries, historians, administrators for the British Empire and explorers in general to this part of the world.
I took my hard stomach in my hands, and examined my view of joggers afresh. Maybe there was a way I could run again, in the lunatic manner of my childhood, without having to wear anything silly or jog in a miserable straight line. Maybe I could run like the wind, wearing anything the hell I wanted! Maybe I didn’t even have to wear shoes!
