Well, blip in the time of covid!!
Finally got a phone which can cope with more than one app at a time... so blip and photos mostly on same platform, look out for more entries than normal, and some back blips. Stay safe one and all.

No blip birthdays for ages, then two come at once, 4 years Read more...

No blip birthdays for ages, then two come at once, 4 years worth of blips, now a few weeks later 1500, and I’m still going strong.

Seems I made the break, and I'm in South America, Buenos Aires to be more precise. Weather is great, its a bit of a culture shock and teaching is poorly paid. 
Head-demons travel with you, so no escape from those, but maybe I'm tolerating them better away from the source of pain. some days better than others.

I'm not happy. I have all the freedom I could want and it's not what I want. I have friends, good ones, but I want community and family.
I'm looking for another job, abroad, for an adventure.

I've just found a load of photos, some of which I've backblipped. unfortunately, they are all spread out amongst other blips.

Another year on! My baby is going to be 18 in a few days time, how did that happen? Life is still throwing troubles my way, but the blessings outweigh them, usually.

23/10/2012 nearly my 51st birthday :)
Lots to celebrate recently, new house, new dog, new job, new life. Old friends, without whom I would not have survived my recent troubles.
I won't forget what you did.

I am still determined to be a positive influence on the world around me.  Reacting to hurtful things other people do with anger or by trying to get justice just doesn't work, but karma does.
Rainbows and waterfalls are the positive side of a wet Scottish holiday.
I found a quote which might help me with my current struggles.
letting go of what you want

The spinning has nearly stopped.

It seems blip has become something beyond its original intentions.
