Creating vs Consuming
“Just as much as we see in others, we have in ourselves.”~William Hazlitt Even if you have a million followers on Instagram, there is always someone with a million more. Hours spent looking at what everyone else is doing and comparing their lives to your own creates doubt and stifles true authenticity. With the advent of live Instagram streams, incessant Snapchat posts, and Facebook check-ins, we can see what everyone is doing at practically every second of every day. We can compare what we eat, what we wear, where we live, what books we're reading, trips we're taking, friends we're with, art we're making, jobs we're performing, shows we're watching, etc.

Gods and Goddesses of Death in Mythology
In order for the good to be considered ‘good’, we need the binary opposite. This demand for balance is woven all throughout life, with ‘death’ being what gives life 'life'. In religion, the gods of death, who are necessary for maintaining the balance of the world, are often overlooked by those who favour life. But life is far less eternal that death. Throughout history, who have our ancestors been worshipping, and who did they believe that they would now reside with?

Theresa May's Father

Hubert’s father, Tom Brasier, was a military man. He had served as a sergeant in the King's Royal Rifles, but was a clerk by the time Hubert was born. Hubert's mother's maiden name was Amy Margaret Patterson and they had married 8 years prior in Hampshire. Amy and Tom’s first son, James David Brasier, had died within a year of his birth in 1911 in Uttaranchal, India, where Tom Brasier had been deployed whilst in service. Two years later, in 1919, Hubert was joined by his younger sister and only other sibling Jean Robina Brasier.

So You've Met Someone in a Wheelchair
Hi. I suppose, being a paraplegic and in a wheelchair and all, that it’s about time that I invested some blog space and thought space into what that whole thing is like. I mean, it’s only been two years since I was shot, but oh boy have there been some learning curves and fun stories in that time. From grabbing onto the back of a motorcycle and subsequently spilling myself into the street, or having a friend jump into my lap and dump me over onto a packed dance floor (it’s like, I can’t double wheelchair myself, can I? Might as well have some fun with it!), or putting a hot plate on my lap for a few seconds and not feeling it and burning my thighs raw, there have been stories. Most of them do involve me falling.
