“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” (Carl Rogers)

Reasons to be Cheerful (Part Forty Four) - and review

'A trip to Covenham Reservoir' set successfully to music - I wouldn't have got round to this yet but for being a part of a carers' poetry group, so am very pleased to be a part.
I am now officially v excited about TLCfeelsgood after another enthusiastic meeting with some great Great Grimsby people. Contrarily, I start to become a little anxious over small details like the bank account etc - will 'they' unconceal my life of hedonistic waste and profligacy and prevent me from being a meddling do-gooder? Watch this space.

Latter half of the week I've been at a very low ebb energy-wise, some kind of virus working its way through me. I'm grateful that I can just recognise what's happening and put the brakes on for a few days. 

But, still managed to ROAR like a lion! Otherwise known as gave a presentation about the person-centred model and how shitty neoliberal education is and it went down rather well :-)


  • Deliberate and irresistible forward motion for TLCfeelsgood, 
  • began a project in the person-centred community to get Carl Rogers' published works freely and openly available online, 
  • Heidegger reading complete (enough for now) and writing has begun on this most difficult of chapters - very pleasing, 
  • read Discipline and Punish, 
  • finished poetry anthology and history of poetry book, 
  • played my music to some (few) people and got some feedback online for 'The wheelie bins of time', 
  • got a 'stupid phone', 
  • presented the pca model to rapturous acclaim (in my head at least).
