Tumour-umour

A few years ago a long, thin object hurtled into our atmosphere from outside the galaxy. The scientist scratched their heads. Neither comet or asteroid in style, this interstellar phenomenon was dismissed. I received my scan results back yesterday. I have ‘something’ it’s not quite an Adenomyosis not quite thickened endometrium. It’s my own Oumuamua.…

I found a lump

If I take my right hand and place it beside my belly button, my thumb is directly above a black cystic mass that is benign. Beneath my middle finger, a gobstopper sized cyst, floats around, suspended from my right ovary. Another smaller cyst bops balloon-like beside it. Their bumping makes them twist and contort, causing…

Sad Mouth #4

Last year when my umbilicus was bad, my back tooth also began to hurt. I made an appointment to visit my dentist who could not find anything irregular except for a tiny hole. This has happened a few times before over the years so I brushed it off as my mouth/teeth are my Achillies heel,…

The dream with the creative performance

Bat in the Attic

On Monday I moved into the cottage. The timing could not have been better as simultaneously the Prime Minister announced the third national lockdown, however, Michelangelo and I had decided to become each other’s support bubble after our Christmas plans were cancelled due to the new strain of Corona virus (Covid 20?) My confidence has…

Why I Write #5 – All Night Dancing

I received a very special gift on Christmas day, I woke up inspired. With three words ready to be committed to page, I muse on what I will write. I decide on a small word count, perhaps 10,000. Ideas flood to the forefront and I am once again filled with a magical sensation I have…
