there be ilk (2/2/23)


just realised I haven’t looked in a mirror for days now, how many days I’m not sure, and if I did it hasn’t registered that I have, it’s getting hard to remember what I look like, not that I care that much, I never really have much, just relied on blind faith, and even if I did look in the mirror, say right now, there won’t be much I can do about what I see as what I’ll see will be me and whatever I do I’ll not be able to change that… this isn’t a cry for help, just a fact, the shape I am, the age I am, the way I fit together, mostly, just me and I’m not sure I need a mirror to rub it in, anyway, today’s a shade of blue day, not sure I can describe the particular shade, suffice to say it’s of the blue ilk, and while we’re on it, when I was much smaller than I am now although still me, I’m afraid, I wondered what a baby elk would be called and thought, an ilk!… unless of course an ilk is an entirely different beast… maybe I look like someone else now, there’s a thought, I wonder though if it’s worth taking the chance and having a peek… maybe tomorrow……


it’s tricky how day breaks before it even gets going, no wonder so many things go wrong when we’re starting with something that’s already broken……

      1. As you were talking about being blue, I probably should have advertised myself better and pointed you in the direction of a really long rant I sent to the CEO of Shell energy… (I don’t know how to be subtle clearly) But i was too excited to share my baby animal fact.
