  • helen brain - Nothingness
    new partner I ve been thinking about where he is What does it mean to have no consciousness To not be If it is anything like it was before we were born then he s in a fine place Knowing nothing feeling nothing not being He used to long for that state when he was alive And looking at him so peaceful asleep it makes me think that being nothing

  • helen brain - Christmas
    to say to fill it you have a new kind of emptiness to face In my case there is someone else here waiting a new relationship to explore I m finding it hard to process this decision I keep running away from it avoiding him who loves me what if I get attached and he dies Is it better to love and lose than never to love again On a happier note I met three bergies this morning on the side of the road They were selling a range of household items that a lady had given them she s gone to Japan merrem this very morning They tried to persuade me to buy a hostess trolley a punch bowl some unglazed biscuitware china and an old fashioned heater that looked like a fireplace Merrem can use it for an ornament Trevor the main bergie believes that any of the tat he sells can be repurposed as an ornament In the end I paid R100 for a plastic trolley on wheels a vintage Singer sewing machine and three Wade pottery dishes He threw in a buggered old enamel box as well It s Trevor s birthday today said one of

  • helen brain - being tardy
    driveway gate fell off its rails on Saturday night and knocked me right off the pavement into the road I m bruised from top to toe and have some impressive grazes and scars to demonstrate the viciousness of the gods when they get into punishment mode Tomorrow I have 6 teenagers and 2 plasterers arriving to mosaic the back of my house with mustardseed and moonshine reject ceramics I m thinking sixties flowers combined with oversized flamingos It may make the house unsellable one day but at least the flock of huge sunflower perching flamingos will amuse me Next blog entry Comments helen the blogger on 04 January 12 Rebecca I m sorry to hear about your boyfriend You must be terrified Whatever you do don t go reading stuff on the Internet about melanoma It s tempting but it can make you anticipate things that may not happen and that makes your suffering worse Good luck to you both helen the blogger on 04 January 12 Myke I m sorry about your wife But it s helpful to hear that you would risk it all again It s a battle to choose love instead of fear I find Even in this very new relationship I am tempted to not let go and love deeply in case it ends in loss again But that is not a very satisfying way to live your life Myke Ashley Cooper on 31 December 11 I had a wife for 8 years who gave me two precious daughters and then she died of cancer Never would I have given up the joy of those 8 years if I had to choose again Goferit Cartoonist Myke Rebecca on 21 December 11 I don t know how I came across your blog don t remember what

  • helen brain - Hunger
    of whom was crippled The relative had to go to school though and the four children decided to follow their mother One by one they collapsed and died from dehydration and starvation It s particularly poignant because it sounds like a fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen It doesn t belong in the present in modern South Africa It s like an archetypal story told to warn children or teach them a moral lesson I feel ashamed of the abundance in my cupboards in a country where four children collapse and die while searching for food This Christmas I m going to buy gifts only from charities And I m giving away the food that sits in my cupboard for months without being eaten There s something disgusting about hoarding food while children starve Next blog entry Comments jacquie on 05 January 12 oh God This is horrific Unreal as you say like a Grimm s grim fairytale Unthinkable reality Important to help our neighbours where we can jacquie on 05 January 12 oh God This is horrific Unreal as you say like a Grimm s grim fairytale Unthinkable reality Important to help our neighbours where we can Debra on
