Another sleepless night
I cannot say I am up at the crack of dawn again because I didn't get to sleep last night hereiamattheedgeblogspotcouk.wordpress.com/2017/08/03/the-insomniac-regions/
Was there a reason for ending up at the church?
Last night for the first time in over 30 years, I almost went to church. I was standing outside http://www.cliftondiocese.com/…/bristol-christ-king-filwood/ when the verger asked if I wanted to attend #Mass.
I thought seriously about going to Mass, even though I am not Catholic, I felt with all that is going on in my life I considered I needed a staff to hold onto.
Why didn't I go in?
I didn't think I dressed appropriately for the church in a hoodie emblazoned the #IDF on it, and jeans.
The religion was no bother, I have friends of many faiths - in fact, we rarely discuss religion - we are friends, and that is what matters.
As I walked away, this song came to mind http://www.godtube.com/watch/?v=J2290JNU
The main reason is that after suffering from various chest ailments over the years, combined with smoke inhalation from the fire three months ago, if I stay indoors too long I start to cough, and I didn't want to ruin the service for other people
Over the years, I have been told I write like E.A.Poe, Wilkie Collins, Sheridan LeFanu, H.P. Lovecraft and Ray Bradbury. The latest addition to the list is a fellow writer said I write like Dashiell Hammett's Sam Spade when I narrate events in my life.
Writers are often told to write similar in style to the books they read, in my case, that would be Westerns/Military history https://hereiamattheedgeblogspotcouk.wordpress.com/2017/08/19/hells-mouth/
I haven't read many westerns, my reading was more towards the history aspect military history
Please, no complaints
I decided as my writing is suffering, I am not writing to sell my work anymore; I am writing because I enjoy writing and I wish that to show in the stories.
Please, remember that these stories are FREE to read, so don't complain if the quality falters.

Bad to the bone
Personal note =stop thinking what else can go wrong?
Life takes that as a challenge.
With my genetic inheritance - the bitter truth - I would be interested in undergoing a bone marrow inspection to see how far my DNA has been corrupted. I know the procedure is painful but it could also be educational
Many thousands of #Twitter posts are posted every day, many are by teens extolling the virtues of pop stars, or football teams.
You can tell when people take you seriously, you get "followed" by people with responsibilities, as I do, I have followers in the Parliament hereiamattheedge.blogspot.co.uk/p/israeli-news.html#.WZQQelF97IU and embassies www.linkedin.com/pulse/i-am-trying-change-opinions-israel-alan-place of #Israel
I hit the jackpot
Well, in a new development it turns out I could have Muscular Dystrophy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muscular_dystrophy. The symptoms fit my declining health.
Hey, don't worry, I am still me
An endless war
I rarely put personal posts out, I don’t think my life is that interesting, and it will get less as time goes on https://hereiamattheedge.blogspot.co.uk/2017/08/let-battle-commence.html#.WYGszYgrLIU.
I will make an exception this time, my family think our enforced move to the South Bristol area has given me a new surge of life, in reality, I am struggling to cope with my life hereiamattheedge.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/mad-bad-dangerous-to-know.html#.WYGv-4grLIU
The Far East
Where my #Google #blog is read always interests me, this week is no different with a large readership in #SouthKorea.
Nothing has changed
I said years ago, "If I didn't have bad luck, I'd have no luck," and the news of my latest injury presses the point home more.
I was planning a trip to a jazz festival in May of next year, the venue is the site of my zombie story. This would have been a return visit as I went to Bridgnorth several years ago for a Folk music festival.
