    The last 6 weeks have been too dark to write a blog about, also, I have noted in times of extreme darkness, I push on, wishing to taste more of the damp dankness, as I find it helpful in my writing!

    So with no outlet to describe the darkness, I have just worked and slept. After a while the black dog comes to visit, he sits on my shoulder, and just watches, this morning, he shuffled off and left me alone, I am like a little kid in a sweetshop, no dog, no wolf, I don't feel too bonkers, almost normal, whatever that is, I am starving him, I have sold his Range Rover, I have not sex in uhmmm let me think , how long has it been, not really sure, I think its uhmm 11 weeks 4 days 6 hours and 32 seconds, not that its on my mind, I have stopped eating anything other than basic food, beans, bread, aloo, I have tried, very hard to put on a clean t shirt every day, the weather makes the world look dark, grey, 20 years ago, today would have been a good day to die, today is a good day to live, I treasure these few moments of normality, serenity, it makes it so easy to connect, it makes living the truth a lot easier, no howling, no screaming, peace, its nice,

    Yes, the kind of peace you describe has a silky, unruffled, soothing feeling. It laps at your soul the way the river waters lap at the sides of a canoe when you just let down the oars and lean back for a restful look at the sky. Sounds, colors, smells, they are all mellow. If there were only a way to preserver the moment and call on it like a genie from a bottle when it is needed. I always have to rediscover it; and it does return.

    Precious moments to recharge, brother. Isn't it funny how so many different incarnations of our selves fight over the driver's seat.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
