Perfection is the Enemy

So last year happened.  Apparently.  It both felt like 347 years and that it never existed, but now it is over and done, and by the mere fact that the earth revolves and we mark that with the label time, it is now 2022. I find it strange that I am so affected by theContinue reading “Perfection is the Enemy”

Mr Sandman, Bring Me a Dream…

Thursday 20th January I slept like a baby last night. And by that I mean I was awake until way past the time I should have been, woke up every hour and, was unreasonably hungry at 4 am. Since I last wrote, I have not had a day go ‘to the plan’ and today wasContinue reading “Mr Sandman, Bring Me a Dream…”

How Can I Create with Debilitating Mental Illness?

Previously in the Life of a Mastress…

Ahhhhhh insomnia, thought art a festering boil on the arse of decency. So, I wrote a post on my main blog page a little while ago about the fact that I often feel better the day after an insomniac filled night.

Art, Diary, Poems and Housekeeping

This week has been very busy and at times my brain has been making me revisit old trauma’s and my EID (Emotional Intensity Disorder) has also been having a lot of fun with my tear ducts – none of this is said to garner any other reaction than (hopefully) an understanding that this week’s postContinue reading “Art, Diary, Poems and Housekeeping”

What just happened?

Do you ever have one of those weeks were you just think to yourself, what in the name of the ever loving Goddess Christina Aguilera, just happened?
