Whats life all about?


Over the last few days I found myself struggling with this age-old question. The impact of the new moon was cruel and unrelenting and refused to loosen its grip on me. Dragging me unwillingly, to places I did not want to go, into a place we all try to avoid. The darkness that resides inside …

I have just watched a TV programme on Channel 4 (10pm 4 Aug 2012) entitled ‘Marilyn Monroe the last sessions’ I found it to be bewitching and could not drag myself away from the TV screen.
