With one one shift to go at work before 2 weeks holiday from work something I am really looking forward to as it will give me a chance to catch up with many things. Since I am back on some form of medication things have become easier again for me though I am starting to get restless again but in a good way. That is unlike in the past the restlessness is not caused by my depression but by a real feeling that there has to be more to life than I have at the moment.

Though the only thing which does frustrate me is the fact for some reason I am afraid to change the little things in my life and start a new direction. I really do not know where this fear is coming from but it is currently deep seated inside my psyche at the moment. I am going to have to dig deep inside myself to move on and stop worrying what effect changes will have on the people I know as after all if they are real people they will understand why.

Though small steps have been made with finally myself getting round to revamping my personal web site something which is long overdue though it does need more work done on it but at least it is usable. Those who are interested the site has the address http://thesteampoweredstoryteller.duckdns.org/ though be warned it is still work in progress.

Add to this, I know it is only a small thing, but someone asked me to sign someone leaving card “The Steam Powered Story Teller” but it is certainly inspired me to start to reinvent part of myself as The Steam Powered Storyteller and find a way locally when I can become a real Story Teller rather than Game Master with respect to Role-Playing. Though to do this will require a lot of tact and diplomacy but in the end may need blunt honesty on my part.

So in the grey mundane life called my life there is some bright lights of change and hope starting to poke through.

I’m coming to the point we here in the United Kingdom needs to remove a lot of long held traditions and institutions of ours as they may be good for the tourist trade but they are not good for the future of the country.

We need to remove those thing which are holding back our country and represent an existing Establishment and Government which cannot or is unwilling to embrace the future and replace them with a new Establishment and Government which can cope with the pressures and global economy of the 21st Century.

If this means the removal of the Queen, remaining Nobles and House of Lords so be it as they be part of what was Britain they, much like Church of England, are things of the past whose relevance has long gone.

Our society here in Britain needs a big shake up from the top to the bottom and need modernising to cope with the 21st Century and once an for all time the Class system needs to be smashed as it has no relevance once again.

We as a country need to move forward not hold onto traditions and institutions which have no purpose any more but to hold us back.

We as a country need to create new traditions and institutions which reflect both the 21st Century and the real modern Britain which include all the people not a few.

We need to do this soon as if this country does not adapt to the modern world soon it will be left behind by the rest of the world and sink into oblivion of old age largely forgotten by the rest of the world.

It is now becoming to a point either adapt and survive or stay the same and die for this country!

The Art Incompetence!

Posted: 15 August, 2017 in Comment, Life, Politics, United Kingdom

More and more it is becoming clear that Mrs May and her government here in the United Kingdom really have no idea what they are doing with Brexit.

It seams the only ideas they have are ill thought out and based on a fantasy created by Mrs May own mind. They are certainly making it up as they going along.

In the end it is high time Mrs May and her Government was removed from power and Parliament permanently as they have shown they are incapable of ruling the country effectively!

In addition they should all face justice and the courts for the damage they have done to the United Kingdom as they should not get away with what they have done!

It is getting high time that I need to start to re-evaluate my life and it’s direction as currently it feels like it has no real direction just drifting from one day to the next with little and no colour to it. Though the anti-anxiety pills are giving me back more clarity currently and may eventually put me in a position to move forward finally.

Myself I certainly need to move forward with my Role-Playing to a point I write more and run more games which will mean I need to stop being distracted by other things at home which include playing inane games on my tablet which currently mean I waste whole days doing nothing. Currently it feels like I am almost afraid to write or move forward as if an apathy has grabbed me.

Though what does not help is the fact I exist in a country and society very intent on self-destruction which suppresses individualism and promotes the twisted ideals of nationalism and patriotism. This singular fact makes my life a purgatory as existing in such a society is contrary to what I need at the moment. I need to be in a society which stimulates my intellect and creative side not one which insists on suppressing such things as our current society does.

It seams I must dig deep inside myself and change myself by breaking the cycle which our society has trapped me in which will be far from difficult. I will have to fight off the fear of change which has been forced on to me by those around me who insist of subtly forcing me into a mould I do not want to be in.

So ahead is a lot of work on my part which starts with myself as if I want to change I need to start with myself not those around me as I do not have control over them but only myself. So which me luck over the next few months.

Lip Service Politics!

Posted: 14 August, 2017 in Comment, Life, Politics, United Kingdom

I had to smile someone wrote on my Facebook timeline that the Labour Party belonged to it’s members as there is a proviso to that which is unless you were a Remain Voter, the majority in the Labour, you were left in the cold and ignored by Mr Corbyn’s leadership!

In the end nothing really chanced in the Labour Party it is still dominated by the MPs in Parliament so myself believing in real democracy could not be a part of such party.

Labour much like all political parties here in the United Kingdom only give lip service to democracy and if anything do not have the balls to embrace it!

A Call to Dreamers and Idealists!

Posted: 14 August, 2017 in Comment, Life

In the end it is getting high time the dreamers and idealists once again started to shout from the roof tops in our world!

As the likes of Gandhi, Martin Luther-King to name a few were dreamers and idealists and they changed the world!

Realists do not change the world they just hide from the world too afraid to move forward or do anything!

As life once again returns back to normality after the past few weeks of disruption, it is time for me to get back to writing and role-playing with a vengeance as it long overdue I get back before apathy gets me again.

I have a exciting ending to the Vampire: The Masquerade Role-Playing game to write as the player actions have certainly put the cat among the pigeons. They are certainly heading for a big climatic end to the chronicle which should be fun to write and play. This should be enough to get me writing again by itself.

The only real blot on my life is work again but not for the obvious reasons but because of the general atmosphere there caused by people getting upset over things which frankly do not matter and not making the best of a difficult situation. Currently I am bit sensitive to it because I am fighting my depression again and really do not need to be surrounded by such situation as it is making the whole process far more difficult than it needs to be.

Unfortunately you cannot control what people do or feel around you other than comment that their actions are not helping you though they do not have listen.

Now it is a matter of myself deciding which direction I want my life to go in and how to achieve it though currently I really have no idea or inspiration how.
