All change, out with the old and in with the new......

If you've been here before, you may be wondering where everything has gone.

No need to wonder any more.

Everything has gone.

I took a long hard look at this bloggy thing of mine, along with my actual presence and participation in social media as a whole, and I came to realise that it wasn't working for me. It wasn't doing what I wanted it to do. It wasn't helping me to make music. It wasn't helping me to take photographs. It wasn't helping me to "see what's out there" in the wider world.

In this modern world, I've taken a huge step by moving myself away from the detritus-filled pit of Facebook and Twitter. I've moved away from LinkedIn and deleted everything that was on this blog page from the last ten years.

I found that life, and more importantly, my head was filled with unnecessary clutter and chatter and fragments of people's lives that really had no meaning or importance in the greater scheme of things on my journey through life. I found the negativity of Facebook and Twitter had become utterly draining on so many levels, and to the point whereupon a half hour wading through a muddied landscape of zombie fodder, desperately trying to find the good stuff that was both interesting and relevant, was leaving me feeling a tad despondent, angry, annoyed irritated and sometimes unhappy. The stupidity of people and their endless tirades about things that really aren't that important, over which they have some measure of control, but choose instead to take to the keyboard instead of taking action. The tiresome complaints and miserable bleatings of souls, unhappy and out of sorts with their lot, seeking solace in the darkest void where nothing but empty pity and false empathy dwells. And the basic nastiness of those sad, spiteful and pitiful two-faced individuals who choose to use people's social media postings as a weapon to further their own standing, when in actual fact they only serve to deepen the distrust and dislike from those around them.

Negative things (people and situations alike) are like a cancer that eat away at your soul and they need to be cut out. Act, not react. Do, not don't And this is the approach/moves I've been making over these last couple of weeks, and already, it's like a weight that's lifted, a grey cloud that's dissipated in the sunshine, the warmth of summer chasing away the coldness of Winter.

Heavy stuff.

And that's kind of it for the heavy stuff.

The world, and life itself, are simply full of possibilities, so this is what the pathway ahead of me will be all about, doing the Captain Kirk thing and seeking out new life and new civilisations, to boldly go where no ma......oh hang on, a bit carried away there. But, you get the drift.

Music, photography, adventures and nonsense.

I make music, I take photos and I enjoy little adventures, both in my little GTK2 Studio and out in the wider world. I love movies, I love science fiction, I love spy stuff. I love food (though these days the food doesn't love me quite as much!!!) and I love meeting up with people from all walks of life. And talking of life, I don't lead an ordinary life, I don't fit into the worlds of routine and normality. Never have, still don't and never will. I live life one day at a time. Planning isn't something I do, it isn't something I'm particularly good at and it's certainly something I don't like. Planning and routine are for other people, they are welcome to it. In short, at the time of writing this, I'm 52 and a half years old and I haven't grown up. And you know what? I never will.

That's more like it ;-)

Life and studio update :-)

Oooops, I did it again - several months since the last bloggy posty thing. Seriously though, where does the time go? Blink and six mont...
