I’m really happy to be posting again and writing. I haven’t writen any poetry for quite a few months now. It’s an odd sensation. For me creativity and inspiration comes in waves. Just like moods, and different ways of thinking. It can be really productive but also quite scary as to how fast and how much I can change, it takes a while for me to get my footing again, but I really feel like I’m starting to control this a bit better as I get older. Is that a good thing?

Lots of things have been going on for me over the past few months. I’ve fufilled my dream of owning an adventure bike. I’m yet to use it to its full capabilities! But I’ve been on quite a few day trips and over just a month I’ve done 1546 miles (2488 kilometres). I’m very much addicted to riding this beast of a bike. I got a brand new NC750X Honda imported straight from the land of the rising sun, Japan. Which blew me over the moon, being a Japanophile.

I’ve been thinking about this blog often, what I should do with it, should I solely write in poetry or should I use it just to write and post content on my “exploits”. Recently I’ve even purchased a helmet camera to catch some footage of the places I travel to. Catching a first person perspective of myself riding a motorbike is beyond bizzare but incredible. I’d like the idea of making motorbike riding music videos or just mini documentaries of places I visit, just having chats. Unfortunately the first video I’ve put on youtube, I’ve mounted the camera way to forward so there’s a frustrating angle to deal with. I’ve fixed it now but it is very annoying, haha. I suppose you learn as you go.

Many times I’ve been thinking, how should I express myself, how can I reach to people, how can I be seen or heard. I think a lot of us think the same thing. How we want to be known. Music, photography, video, painting, drawing, poetry, singing. All these things we do to be seen or heard. To be pondered on, on our unique point of view as a human being, our intellect and our minds.

I think I will just use this blog to post what I feel strongly about and write poetry as I always love to.

Anyhow, it’s nice to write, and it’s nice to be back.

Hope you’re all doing well!

I’m back..

Hey guys. It feels like a lifetime I’ve been gone for but it’s only been a few measly weeks. But those few measly weeks have changed me so much. They’ve completely changed my life’s direction. Writing on the road was difficult. To me, writing is just another medium, y’know? I took to singing a lot. I sang everywhere I went on my motorbike, coming up with the lyrics was like writing to poetry to me and I got just as much release as I would sitting in my room, writing away.

I broke up with my long term girlfriend. I know what you’re thinking. I probably met some girls along the road. Sure, there were many temptations and that’s one of the reasons I split up with her. I feel like I can’t keep missing out on these experiences. I reached John O’ Groats and it became more and more apparent to me I need to do my own thing. I need to travel without being chained down. I need to experience other people. It was such a hard thing to finally accept. But y’know what, I am 50% of the relationship too and if I’m not happy and feel like I’m not growing, then I need to grow some balls and tell her the truth.

So that has been a major change in my life.

Another one is that I’ve finally found somewhere I’d love to move to. Glasgow! Beautiful city, love the Scots and there’s literally a tonne of surrounding nature if the city life gets too much for me.

Being on the road every day was addictive. I met so many people. I had so many genuine chats. Mostly drunken ones. But aren’t we all more honest when we’re drunk or high? There’s no holding back, no barriers stopping us. What a world we’d all live in if we were all drunk.

I learnt so much about my best friend too. We were never apart the entire two weeks. I feel like right now he should be right behind me suggesting where we should eat next or which girl takes he’s into. It’s helped us grow together as friends.

So right now I feel incredibly lonely, I feel like I’ve still got itchy feet. I need to move about, I need to write, I need to express. I suppose it’s also dealing with going back to work tomorrow too. I can just feel it looming over me. I suppose with life it’s all give and take, right?

Hope you’ve all been well. I know it’s a bit raw all this, but I like to be honest and human and I’m sure you guys can appreciate that. Hope you enjoy the pics too!

Europe tour happening next year for sure after I upgrade the bike. I will miss the trusty little ped.

Just a little, small annoucement to make

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hi to all those staying and those just passing by. I have a small annoucement to make! I’m not one for doing these and it feels corny doing so. But, here we are.

In about a week and a bit I’m off on a tour around the UK on my trusty ped. I’m going all over the place, leaving for about two weeks. Honestly, it’s a much needed break from work and miserable but safe routine.

Now I love travelling, I love seeing different places, it gives me quite a rush. Being on the move is certainly something. I’m sure this makes me sound just like one of the those “I love travelling, it’s my life!” But it’s true! We all need it once in a while to break out of our comfort zones, to see how others live, to learn and grow. It’s the biggest inspiration anyone can have.

So yes. I’m going all the way from the southern tip of England in Devon, right the way to the furthermost part of Scotland, John O’ Groats. Then hopefully coming back to Cornwall to reach lands end, where I’ve been before. I’m really hoping my ped doesn’t die on me or I die on my ped. So I hope you wish us both luck!

Now I know what you’re thinking. Why are you writing about all this on a poetry/writing blog. Well of course, this is gonna effect my writing ever so slightly! Which is why all of my posts over the two weeks while I’m gone will be scheduled. I may have internet where I’m going, I may not. Only time will tell. So communication on my blog might be fairly limited. But please know that I’m having a whale of a time and hope you are all well.

Another small announcement:

I am actually working on a novel right now which I hope some of you may be interested in. Obviously it’s quite far-fetched that it may grab even the smallest of attention but I felt it worth saying and I hope you look forward to it! It’s great fun to write and hopefully great fun to read. Will post further updates as it progresses!

Yet another small, tiny annoucement

I would just like to say thank you to all those following my work and hanging around still! Really appreciate ya, truly am flabbergasted that people enjoy my writing, I’m continually amazed.
