International Talk Like a Pirate Day Recruitment Drive!

International Speak like a Pirate Day is today. And our Captain has put out a plea for more crew. We need to have a fair sized one ready to go at this time tomorrow. As much as I want to be the Pirate Queen I am not so great at speaking like a pirate. 🙂

Poem About Depression

So very well put. Made my heart ache as I was there at the beginning of the year and the emotions and feelings can still be a little raw.

Mental Health Advocate

They say it gets better with time

But I’ve been here for 18 years

They say just suck it up

But they dont know theres nothing left to pick up

They say it’s just a phase,

But I tell them im not the mother fucking moon.

They say I’ll heal,

But I’m not a cut bleeding from the skin,

I’m a heart shattered

A mind clattered

Force stopping and battered

They say just pushforward

But its hard when there’s a train pulling you backwards.

A time machine making you revisit the past

The past you tried so hard to burry

The past you threw into the ocean with a brick,

But that brick turned into a balloon

And floated right back into my life.

They say that i’m making it up

Even though their words hit me like a truck

They don’t know the pain i feel

The pain i…

The mighty oak



reaching for sunny skies

never changing

never bending

always a beacon for the storm.

The gentle willlow

sweeping the ground




as the storm rages on.

I have the strength

the determination of an oak

to withstand pain

to stand tall

facing the storm

as I am pelted with rain and hail.

Twist and turn



that despite my strength

I need to bend

like the willow

to protect myself

to keep safe

this heart

that I am holding out to you.

What Are You Going To Blog About Today?

Although everyone blogs on a pretty much daily basis this is still a good read. And the challenge is one that I can get behind. LOL Have an awesome day all.

Fractured Faith Blog

It has come to my attention (well I do investigate for a living after all) that I follow a lot of fantastic bloggers. I try to keep up with as many of them as I can and, where possible, offer encouragement and support. I can’t do that with them all, though, as otherwise I would never be off WordPress but even if it means just liking a post, I do it. Just to let people know that I care and appreciate their written efforts. It’s the least I can do given the tremendous support we receive on a daily basis.

The flip side of that is that a lot of bloggers don’t blog or, if they do, it is very infrequently. You see it all the time. The ‘Sorry I haven’t blogged in ages but I’ve been soooooo busy/life got in the way/haven’t had anything to say’ type introductions. Delete…
