That Monday Feeling

I'm feeling the delayed effects of my weekend in South Shields. I'm feeling somewhat unsettled but it's only caused by the fact I had to get up to go to work instead of what I wanted to do - lie in bed all day.

I'm tired, but happy with the story I wrote long-hand on the train south. I only really ever write poetry, ideas or notes using my pen and paper, so it was really good to get a full story down.

My entry is up on the PSH 2006 Poetry Exchange Website (scroll down till you see it). I'm looking forward to seeing who I get teamed with in March. We'll swap our poetry chapbooks and the beauty is, you never know what you're going to get. But that's what is so good about poetry - it can open up so many worlds if you just open your eyes.

I couldn't sleep, so ended up scribbling into my notebook and listening to the darkness fold around me for a couple of hours.

I'm going to post a few cartoons over the next few days at the end of each post. Nothing religious, though I suspect I'll be driven to comment on that sooner or later.

Wouldn't it be nice if they would just CANCEL Mondays? Make them second Sundays or something. Just start the week on Tuesday. I'm sure we'd all live twice as long if that would happen.
