Violently, my mind exploded! Suddenly! A massive Flashback! It was something said, one word, on the radio this morning. I can’t even bring myself to tell you what that one ‘innocent’ word was. It triggered me into silence and blanked out my day.


Where have i been all day? Have i seen anyone? Have i spoken to anyone? Have i done anything? I cannot speak.I cannot hear. I cannot answer my own questions because my mind is still shattered from the ‘word’, this morning. How do i explain how i am feeling? I can’t. I found myself just now, sitting, terrified, in a corner, on the floor. Hiding from my mind. I’m sorry but i cannot speak anymore. I cannot write anymore.I am sorry x Silence.

Writing my memoirs, musings, a little fiction and a lot of poetry as a way of exploring and making the most of my life ... ... Having had a break from writing my blog for more than three years, I decided to return to write my memoirs, some day-to-day observations, views and feelings. My passion is non-fiction poetry. I have a disability and use an electric powerchair called Alfie and let nothing get in the way of living life to the full. I believe that you can never do a kindness too soon and should give credit where credit is due. A smile or a kind word could make the difference between a good or bad day for a person - we never know what's going on for another soul. Those little things, perhaps, practised daily like a mantra, could mean so much to someone else. Thank you for visiting my blog and reading a little more about me. Please, make yourself at home here. You are very welcome. Ellie x 😊
