Five Things I Hate About Christmas

The old saying goes that there’s nothing as certain as death and taxes. In the modern western world, I think we can add Christmas to that list too. Once you hit October it consumes pretty much everything going forward from there. Weeks and weeks of preparation for one day. As a child, I loved Christmas. … Continue reading Five Things I Hate About Christmas

Traversing the Rabbit Hole of Depression

Depression is an issue that has dogged me for a lot longer than I’ve been prepared to admit even to myself. It’s tough to describe how it feels.

I had no choice in the matter. I renounced the notion of ‘god’ and ‘religion’ pretty … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – A Message of Peace from an Atheist

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Funeral without a Friend (Short Story)

I take a look at the lines of pews and spy a place, but to be honest I really don’t fancy sitting on that cold, hard wood. Instead, I decide to stand here at the back and watch the service take place from this viewpoint. There’s quiet murmuring all around as they await the emergence … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Funeral without a Friend (Short Story)
