No. 3083

  
Rumination. By CpSingleton © 2016
Why is a swear word.

Less damning than fuck, but

No less poisonous to the soul.
Let me explain:
Recently such names as David Bowie, Victoria Wood, Alan Rickman, Paul Daniels, Percy Sledge, Ronnie Corbett and, yesterday, Prince have all died. 

Gone.

Folk ask: why?

It’s so depressing, why are they are these legends dying?!

Do you think that when David Jones was scraping a living with the Pirates that he asked why?

No. He asked how.

How can I be at the top?

How can I be a better musician?

How can I write and inspire?
That is the question we should be asking.

Legends have passed, but not gone. They have left in their wake a journey of joy.

How can we do the same?

Not 

Why am I not doing the same.
And on that note, I’m going to the gym.

About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.

  1. It’s so depressing. I remember being 12 and my best friend Bonnie and I singing Purple Rain at the top of our lungs while my dad drove us to a sleepover. Bonnie emailed last night and said remember how the madder your dad got, the louder we sang? We segued into When Doves Cry. We didn’t shut up the entire ride. It was a 30-minute trip. 57 is too young. 2016 is pissing me off. Anyway, you make sense for once. Happy gymimg
