Bitch on the Blog

The long view

Filed under: Despair — bitchontheblog @ 19:14

If blogging has ONE saving grace – other than reaffirming every so often that there are idiots other than yourself on the planet – it’s that a blog does NOT expect to be fed like a baby or milked like a herd of cows  – on demand/on time. Or else.

Nature is good that way: It focusses on the important. I do not focus. Which has been painfully confirmed to me this morning. I need vision. I need CLEAR vision. I need to blend OUT that which is unimportant. Good luck to me. Don’t ask. I am obliterating.

My father and my son, apart from Jean – and I rely on her discretion so don’t try and extract from her that which is for her eyes only-, the only ones partial to one of my current plights, and whilst sympathetic, asked me, independently, to “keep it in perspective”. HA. The irony of it.

U – out of sight, round the corner from the Titanic’s Shipping Office, Southampton, Seagulls singing (seagulls do NOT sing – whatever Neil Diamond made of it 30 or so ago). Seagulls are mainly big.  Their inland shrieks (or lack of) a far better indicator of what weather to descend on Ocean Village than the BBC’s weather forecast will ever be.



  1. Good luck! You have my (utmost) sympathy. “Utmost” in parens because as I recall you think it should be left out. But it really is there in my heart.

    • Thanks, Jean. It’s funny: Being my own hardest critic (platinum has nothing on me) I have been watching myself in the wake of what I said about adverbs,adjectives, embellishments, a few months or so ago. Interesting. Very. An education. If my comment/criticism only served ONE purpose: Made me self aware as to my shortcomings on that score. Result being that I am so much more (well, a little) forgiving. Because even an embellishment has a place (when applied judiciously).

      U(tmost), yours

    • Well, Looney, they do it differently in California. Will try, forthwith, to hear the sing amongst the noise.
