One of my favourite books is John Berger’s A Fortunate Man: The Story of a Country Doctor. In my mind, it is perhaps the 2nd best of John Berger books and yet most of my (art or healthcare) friends have never read it. To me it is a masterpiece of witness: a moving meditation on humanity,Continue reading “A Fortunate Kid: a clerk of records for the people”

How COVID-19 might be able to help make us more aware of how illness changes how we are in the world.
I’ve been thinking about this Guardian article for a while — https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/may/15/weird-hell-professor-advent-calendar-covid-19-symptoms-paul-garner?CMP=fb_gu&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook&fbclid=IwAR10MKbX-9nheBZ-TebSVq3sTiS6hUltw8O96k6f2_onhqgNLYIytZNwomM#Echobox=1589621668 We’re often led to believe that only a very small percentage of people get after-effects from viruses and the like.

LOL I said to HayleyContinue reading “week 1 self isolation down: unhomelikeness”

So after a few days of being back in the UK, IContinue reading “In search of a resolution”
Time: Before I’m Gone
Time. Time fascinates me no end. I’ve read a lot of theories about time. Can you remember when the 6 week summer holidays used to feel so long and hazy and hot? And now, before you know it, it’s already summer when it was only just Christmas. And you’re left thinking? Whoa, time!? I justContinue reading “Time: Before I’m Gone”

I just bought a book I found in a bargin box for £2 on quantum physics. It’s by Brian Cox, it came out a few years ago when I was working one of my many part-part-time jobs in a bookstore. The book has always intrigued me from the shelf I used to stare at fromContinue reading “Everything That Can Happen, Does Happen”
