A little of this and a bit more

Alan Crawford presents twisted short and some longer stories for adults, with quite a number of his rants and observations as well.

Several curious people, really it’s just one, asked me how or where the ideas came from. Thankfully there’s no clear answer. When the trousers, mind, or weather conditions suit such things, the computer opens, a page appears, and it starts to flow. All designed to promote my nonsense, which may be adult in nature but not necessarily mature.

On a positive note

Reading Time: 2 minutesIt’s the weekend. A long weekend packed with celebration and relaxation and I’m doing both. Although at the moment i’m sat here typing another list. It’s an attempt at a list of wonderful things, things to share, things to imbibe and things to restrict in volume.

Ok it’s a short list, because as you should be aware dear reader, I’m always moaning, so creating this positive list has been most difficult. Trust me – it’s difficult.

  • The amazing love that a dog can provide
  • Mankind’s ability to get out of the shity situation it puts itself in .. (well normally)
  • The love of a parent, unless they’re in china and their child is female
  • The beauty of nature sparkling on a crisp april morning
  • The quiet achieved on that same morning before the neighbours tribe attack
  • The sharing of admiration, hints, feedback and power from my fellow bloggers
  • The faint hope that tbaoo might actually make some money from being tbaoo
  • The fact that all of us know we should be better, some I hope – try to be
  • The smiles brought to my face from absurd comedy, be it crass or calm
  • The right I have in Queensland to be able to say “I told you so”, it won’t take long
  • In Australia, we have the ability to vigorously complain about our politicians
  • The protection we have under the law, yes i know – the more money you have = greater protection
  • Being able to still remember most things, some are getting lost in the fog
  • The right (often actioned ) to not take myself too seriously
  • The joy in not being so anal about SEO, hints, tips, and not posting same the old same old stuff about blogging while rehashing new technology reviews
  • The ability, or curse, to be able grow as much hair  on my head, body and face, as i deem appropriate
  • That I have the time, the energy, the ability and the resources to keep banging this nonsense out online
  • The fact that I’m running out of positives just now and it doesn’t matter

I think it would also be an inspiration to everyone to ‘create more good’ if we got to hear of real-life examples of this sort of thing happening, such as positive news stories like you mentioned.

‘the protection we have under the law, yes i know – the more money you have = greater protection’ is my favorite!
Great post! Love your positives. Not so sure I could come up with that many this morning 🙂 So glad to drop by and read yours.

Ha, that was great. I love it. You made me smile at least a dozen different times in less then five minutes and trust me that’s an accomplishment with me. These days I’m so serious. I need to lighten up. Thanks for helping that to happen.

Love this! And since what you focus on expands, I say it’s a good way to bringing more of what you appreciate into your life. 🙂

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
