An Evening Walk

I had an alright day yesterday. Feels uber weird writing that. But I did. Well, until about 5pm when my mood went downhill too fast for me to try and snatch it back. I'd wanted to go for an evening walk, catch some autumn textures with my camera and watch some spiders spinning. I'd been… Continue reading An Evening Walk

Sound Of The Day : Chelsea Wolfe

The frame of mind I've been in recently hasn't enabled me to listen to much music. I'd put something on and find I wasn't able to absorb it, and, after a few minutes or sometimes even less, I'd need to click off and retreat back into silence. Now, don't get me wrong, I need my… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Chelsea Wolfe

You’re Doing Ok, Wolf Heart

It's my birthday today. I'm 33. I'm also perhaps the most depressed that I've been in as long as I can remember. This depression that I've been experiencing isn't the same as what I'm used to though.

When I Can’t I Do

Nearly a month ago, I was taken off the medication I’d been on for ten years – citalopram and quetiapine – because the combination of the two was having a worrying effect on my heart. My mood was also as low as low could go, so my doctor wanted to see if something else could… Continue reading When I Can’t I Do

Thinking In The Dark : When It’s Hard To Go On

It's hard to move forward right now. I think it might be the side effects of my new medication. Or it might be the weight of the past six months bearing down on me. Bringing down to the kitchen the cup of tea that I made last night and didn't drink because I was too… Continue reading Thinking In The Dark : When It’s Hard To Go On

Wyrd Words Book Club

Some of you might know about Slice Of The Moon Book Club, the little book club I set up on Instagram a while ago. Well, it's been re-vamped as Wyrd Words Book Club! The literature I'll share will be, typically, wyrd and dark, though there will be a strong focus on nature, as there often… Continue reading Wyrd Words Book Club

On Not Letting My Phone Steal My Reading Time

A little while ago, I got a proper phone. By that, I mean one that hadn’t been handed down to me. By that, I also mean a phone with which I can do all the you’re supposed to be able to do on a phone in 2019. (In case you’re interested in learning about my… Continue reading On Not Letting My Phone Steal My Reading Time
