As I said on Facebook, we need a more creative name for you readers… (Like Bohemians or something.)
Anyways, I wasn’t planning to do a blog post today. I had a real pyjama day and I only showered at 2pm so I’m being very nice by posting today, aren’t I? (We all I know I need these posts, more than you do…) #LifeOfAPoorBlogger
Fortunately, during my lazy day I had, I managed to also to do some songwriting. And it sounds really great, all inspired by someone who gave me hell. Take that!
Anyways… I just put up a new promotional video on YouTube which can be seen down below. That also brings me to my next point. I was inspired by a very creative individual by the name of Lwamkelo Mkhize, to do a challenge where I ask my readers to let me write them poems based on emotions they find difficult to express. For example, if you want me to write about bitterness or bliss. Just go over to the contact page to send a pigeon with a letter stapped to its foot. So please, take part in the challenge… I think it can be quite fun.
You can go look at Lwamkelo’s blog over here
I have also been researching all sorts of other Ideas on Pinterest for my Blog that I will eventually get to, so stay tuned.
Here is today’s poem…
“Having that desire to travel the world and change it.
Climb out of my London bed, put on a sweater and jeans – out the front door.
Grab my coffee downstairs and open myself to the lusting air. In a taxi, down the lane, off to central station and on a train.
Take my notebook along, write a song and observe the twinkling lights. I want to be that wonder-lusting 20 year old, whose soul has never been sold.”

I wrote this poem because I have a strong desire to travel London. I even have this poem written in a notebook with the Big Ben and a red telephone box on the front of it.
Here is the new promotional video:
Yours in Madness.
