Grizabella the Glamour Cat


I apologise for such a long time of no posts.
My cat, Bella, has cat flu, and I now think she is losing her sight in one eye.
I've have a couple of trolls on my Facebook page, but That is their problem, I have my cat to think of.

She was named after the character is Cats the musical.
You may even see me in town someday wearing proudly the shirt.






I may not post as much here while she is poorly, so if you would like to see little updates, please look at my Facebook page The Halstead Hermit, where I do a few updates when I feel unable to write much here.

Until I blog again (which won't be very long) I leave you with the best version of Memory, performed  by one of the best singers there is, Betty Buckley.

Every precious dream and vision underneath the stars


Last night I watched the moon as it rose outside the window. At first I was so scared as I assumed since it was so large and was rising that fast that I was hallucinating yet again. 
It took my Mum to try to reassure me several times that she could see it, and that it was normal.
It was like I was witness to some celestial event that would have been seen hundreds of years ago.
Then, about a half hour before I began to write the post you are reading now, I remembered this beautiful, well written if not somewhat ironic song.
There's probably many interpretations as to the lyric meanings.
Drugs? Maybe. 
But I don't see it as a poet or artist jealous of another, rather I see it as a song about being in awe of another persons talent.
I see myself, listening to a musical, or my love for a lyricist like Tim Rice, or an artist such as Van Gogh.
I'm not upset that I will never produce a masterpiece of any kind, or that my mediocrity dictates I will not see Brigadoon....
I saw the whole of the moon last night. Literally. 
That's all I needed, to see something real.
And I will never lose the capacity to adore other people's beauty, either.
For those of you who know how to inspire, keep on. For you are indeed blessed!

A beautiful day in Halstead - take a smile!


Its been a glorious day for me.
The past week has not been the easiest, yet I managed to make some decisions that are changing my life, and in a couple of weeks, my life will be much improved.
so today I ventured out into Halstead High Street, and felt optimistic, and even took a selfie!
The street was buzzing, and people made me feel included, yay!!!
