The Scars We Don’t See

Have you ever looked at a person, be it somebody you know or a perfect stranger, and wondered what might be going on inside their head?

Fatherhood–The Toddler and the Thirty-Four-Year-Old Boy

Almost two years ago I composed a rather popular piece on fatherhood. It had to be done. Although I don’t define myself simply as a parent, I do recognise that I’m viewed by most as being one ahead of anything else I might perceive myself to be. That’s fine. It makes perfect sense. Having just … Continue reading Fatherhood–The Toddler and the Thirty-Four-Year-Old Boy

I met two of my best friends (Andy … Continue reading Shenanigans

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Smile

“Cheer up; it might never happen.” “A smile costs nothing.” “Just think happy thoughts.” Are phrases like these not the single most annoying thing to hear when you’re feeling down about something?

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Five Stupid/Pointless Things I’d Do if Money Was No Object and I Had Too Much Time on My Hands

As it’s April 1st I feel some foolishness is in order. I’ve been a bit too serious of late and would like to drag things back to a more shallow and humorous note. Let’s face it; we’ve all thought about what we’d do if we came into an obscene amount of money. Here in Britain, I … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Five Stupid/Pointless Things I’d Do if Money Was No Object and I Had Too Much Time on My Hands

Her voice wasn’t what Niall had expected, though he wasn’t sure why given as he was aware of what the local dialect sounded like. That said, he didn’t find her voice unpleasant at all. “Okay … Continue reading Find Me a Find – Chapter Ten

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Embrace Thy Kingdom (A Real Life Story)

Title image from Geograph. If you read my previous real life tale, Tea Time, then you’ll know that spontaneity was something of a normalcy amongst my friends and I.
