Self-Isolation

My 12-Week Self Isolation in 2010

In 2010 I made a conscious decision to self-isolate.  Of course, this was before it became an enforced trend it was called ‘getting away from everything’ (now self-isolation) I had passed through a very personal storm. That storm started with a brutal divorce and concluded with an end-all bankruptcy. It was also horrible a million…

CORONAVIRUS and Strange Times

CORONAVIRUS has created what can be described by some as strange times. It’s interesting to observe. The health and the life of each individual should always come first.  Please look after yourself.

Caroline Flack Dead

Caroline Flack Dead. Caroline Flack RIP. What a sickening shame. Another death in a fake world reality that was never real.

Who Am I?
