SPIDER!
It was about 3am when I opened my eyes and reached for my glasses. I gingerly crept out of bed for a nature call. My eagle-eyes scoured the walls to locate my eight-legged-spider 'friend'. "Oscar"- as I have now named him - was nowhere to be seen... Relief ...

"Think about such things..." : A tool against despondency
During the past two weeks, I have really battled with the side effects of Bell’s palsy.  Half of my face has been left paralyzed and I
have had sporadic pain, difficulty eating and drinking, eye problems and
generally having to try do things differently.   ...

Bell's Palsy: Day 8: "He leads me besides the still waters..."

In a moment one’s whole world can be turned upside down. I’ve
always known this fact, but never fully realised it until last Friday morning. I’d just climbed out of the shower and was busy drying
myself off when I noticed that my face felt oddly un-synchron...

SHORT STORY: "What's in a slipper"
Hi everybody While cleaning up my computer, I found a little 'story' I'd written in 2011. Thought you may enjoy it. WHAT'S IN A SLIPPER?  (by Caryl Moll) “No!” she shouts.   I look up in surprise. “No!” she repeats, looking at me sternly. “Give that back to...
