In conversation with Andy Cash, winner of the Hysteria 2020 poetry competition
Andy Cash was the winner of the Hysteria 2020 poetry competition with his poem The Poets Meeting published in the Hysteria 7 anthology. Andy writes about love, hope, human insecurities, death, our needs, mental illness and weaknesses, strengths, deep desires to be part of a fellow brethren and the lusts of life in an everyday world. He is anti-post truth and a fighter for freedom of the mind. Each poem he writes is about the truth, real people and real events.

The space between thoughts
The role of ‘thought’ in our experience of life and the world around us has been a defining understanding over the last few years for me. But it’s never been in such sharp relief as in the last 17 months. I am bemused by the observation of myself seesawing between different worries, concerns and misunderstandings as I try (along with the rest of humanity) to make sense of how we’ve got to where we are. What I seem to have forgotten along the way is how important the space between thoughts is when I get caught up in the moment to moment distractions called ‘information’. I have found myse...

A New Postpartum Depression Drug Could Lead to a Revolution in Treating Women ’s Mental Health Issues
About one in seven women who give birth in the U.S. experience postpartum depression—a condition that can leave them exhausted, make it difficult for them to bond with their babies, and even generate thoughts of suicide. Left untreated, the condition can become chronic and interfere with the development of suffering mothers’ babies. It also takes a toll on society at large; untreated maternal mental health conditions cost the U.S. more than $14 billion a year, according to a 2019 study from Mathematica, a social policy research firm. Despite this, many women struggling with postpartum depression do not receive ...

Exercising your happiness muscle
I believe happiness is always ours. What I mean by that is that it’s always there, lurking in the background, but sometimes for some of us, it’s been so covered up with sadness and the circumstances of life we’ve forgotten it exists for us, always. As I was wandering around my local village on my morning dog walk with The Beeble and Pip today it occurred to me happiness is a bit like a muscle that needs exercising; you know like the ones around our middle we can’t see but know if they were stronger or firmer our waist might be a little trimmer. Last week I was up around Chester and when I got back I...

I identify as ‘ human ’
If I were a rabbit I would wear a rabbit fur. I’d hunker down on all fours. I’d nibble grass and would hide in my burrow at the first sign of danger. If I were a tiger, I would walk the steppe or pace my cage, I would wear my striped coat and run from the hunters gun and chase the game that feeds me If I were a fish, I would never come up for air out of the ocean, lake or stream that is my home. But I am neither rabbit, tiger or fish; I am human. The skin that clothes my body defines my humanity. It does not mark me as better or less than any other human, it just is what it is. It is the glue that holds this bo...

Programming your IPS – inner positioning system
We all have a perfect internal compass, one that consistently and accurately guides us in the right direction as we navigate this journey called ‘Life’. I like to think of mine as my IPS (I work in IT so acronyms are a by-product of the way I think :-)), also known as my Inner Positioning System. It’s a bit like the GPS (there we go with the acronyms again!) in your car; but instead of a location on the planet’s surface, it tells you where you are in life and how to correct course for calmer waters when you find yourself in a challenging situation. I know we all have one of these useful little IPS s...

The one perfect notebook to rule them all
I love a good notebook and I’ve been looking for the perfect notebook for many years. Even though I work in IT and have done for several decades, there is something about the feel of paper and pen. The act of writing words out is soothing and has helped me hugely over many years. But it has to be the right notebook and the right pen. My pen must be good quality, not one of those cheap biro’s, having said that I’ve picked up many good quality pens from conferences and networking over the years. Some I consider favourites and, when the cartridge runs out, instead of throwing them away I head for the nearest...

. No this is not the start of Martin Luther King’s famous speech. Instead, it’s my take on a similar principle. I have a dream, I’ve had it for many years, to give everyone the opportunity to change their life if they want to. The method is simple and effective and it works every time, but first, you have to see me as I really am. So, I’d like you to sit back, relax and put your imagination into gear as I start a process of transformation before your very eyes.

Kay had been apprehensive about taking Pansy in, but things had happened so quickly after Nan’s fall that she had felt it was the only option, and her Nan had been so grateful. It had been left to Kay to break the news to Nan that she was going straight into a nursing home after hospital due to her failing vision, and that her bungalow would have to be sold. ‘I never really liked the place anyway,’ Nan had...

The happiness factor
To be or not to be, that is the question? The opening line of Hamlet’s soliloquy is a memorable piece that you probably remember from school days. But it is the beginning of a personal consideration about the merits of suicide; it’s no wonder the play is one of Shakespeare’s tragedies. I like to think that perhaps Will could have improved it just a little by the addition of one simple word. To be happy or not to be happy, now that is an even more interesting question? Perhaps in changing the tone of the opening line Hamlet might have changed his fate and so turned tragedy into something altogether lighter...

You know what it’s like to encounter something new for the first time. There’s a moment of surprise, perhaps even shock, before the eye starts roving around, exploring.

Your conscious brain isn’t aware that this is playing out in the background.
