AN OUTSIDER’S VIEW OF ‘FINE’
I’m fine….didn’t you know I was fine? No need to worry. Everything is okay. I’m happy. Didn’t I tell you earlier…..that I feel so much better? So, now you know. It’s alright. I’m doing great…..so you see…..I’m fine!
Do you think I’m fine?

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 😊

I dont think your ok? Are you? XX
Thank you for your sensitivity as you are right….I wasn’t ‘fine’ at all when I wrote this piece. I was angry with myself and I don’t know why exactly other than I get patches where I am very dissatisfied and critical about myself and especially of my writing and this was one of those evenings.
I added the first few words ‘ An outsider’s view of fine’ as an afterthought because I felt, having written it and pressed the dreaded ‘Publish’ button that it came across as aggressive (when no offence was intended) when the only person I was dissatisfied with was myself so I went back and edited it. Thank you for noticing but I’m ok today (I think)….it is early yet.
Hope you are keeping well. Love Ellie xxx
