Getting ready for the 'Ball'

I'm almost set for a weekend away, some packing yet to do, recharging the batteries for my camera, getting my travel docs sorted. I need this, some 'me' time. I may even have the 'odd' beer on the banks of the Ouse. There will be a follow up review shortly and I'm looking forward to doing it, therapeutic journalism I suppose, hopefully cathartic in a good way.

Ta ta for now, pop pickers.

Bring back the spark

I hate being depressed, it's like wearing lead boots. And as for trying to get up in the morning........

I hope that by making these flatulent outpourings I'll make sense of the way I feel? At least I know that there is light at the end of the tunnel, hopefully a rainbow. I'm determined to kick the arse violently of this little fugue. If I need to metaphorically equip myself with a benailed baseball bat, then so be it. It could be nasty, but sod it. Rant over for the time being.

It's been a while since my last entry, though it seems like only last week, such is the passage of time. Maybe it's a mid-life thang, I suspect not though.

It's been too busy of late, for the wrong reasons and I find myself not the master of my destiny or time. One thing that has affected me profoundly of late is getting rid of my late father's gear, clothes that sort of thing. Talking to my mum about it brought back some ancient memories, the sudden realisation of the 'finality' of my father's death. It certainly hit me harder than I thought possible, re-opening raw wounds that I thought were healing nicely, I know it's only 4 months but sometimes it feels last week or conversely like an age ago.

After a couple of weeks feeling low I find myself feeling somewhat more optimistic. Next weekend I'm in York, a nice B'n B and Nelsonica '08 this time re-invented as 'The Experimental Time Traveller's Ball'. I'm looking forward to meeting old friends, fellow Nelsonic enthusiasts and maybe I might get involved in the 'meet 'n greet'.... well why not?

I'm also hoping the change of place / scenery will help my photographic muses. You never know. The B'n B is on the other side of York, I reckon 20-30 minutes walk from the NO8 venue, ample opportunity for photo 'opps' I hope. But no matter, it'll be good to get away from Hull, the 'Big Shitty'........
