THE COLOUR OF INNOCENCE, MISOGYNOIR AND THE ISSUE OF GENDER BASED VIOLENCE IN APPARENTLY CIVILISED SOCIETIES.

    I had colleague at work express to me her horror and fear in the light Sarah Everard's brutal and violent death. How unsafe it made her feel and how it could have been anyone; she was just your average everyday woman, afterall. This much is true....

GETTING OLDER, WISER, SHARPER (MORE CYNICAL) versus THE BEAUTY OF YOUTH ❤️

    This was me aged 19... If I could go back in time and give myself one piece of advice, it would have been pointless really because I doubt I would have listened 😊. But it might have been something along the lines of; know your own worth. Underst...

BLACK BOOTY, RACIAL BIAS AND CULTURAL Legacies (Black History ain't just a one month a year deal)

17 Feb 2021 14 minute read 2 comments (S)llew la Wulf

It's Black History Month in the States currently and although I'm UK based, BHM should never just be a one off month in my mind, it is consistently a point to reflect upon, because the  reason we have it is a really boiled down to the prevailing raci...

VAGINA DENTATA; à poem, art, a song

8 Feb 2021 3 minute read 2 comments (S)llew la Wulf

  I feel lucky, to be who I am; to be alive; to have survived (not just the debacle of this last 12 months of a pandemic, but all that life has thrown me); to be more scared of living in fear than anything else.  Don't get me wrong, life often feels...

FEBRUARY, BJORK AND JULIE ANDREWS... waving goodbye to Janus

6 Feb 2021 1 minute read 0 comments (S)llew la Wulf

February is here and January, the two faced little b***h that he is, has gone. Yes, I feel in some senses like I, we, can all breathe a sigh of relief. As I've said in many of my posts from last month, January has got to be the shittiest month of the...

AMERICA, LAND OF THE FREE (FOR SOME); some notes on privilege, whiteness and racism.

8 Jan 2021 14 minute read 5 comments (S)llew la Wulf

  It's funny, yesterday I spoke to 2 people on the phone; one a family member (Black) another à friend (white). After the standard and general greetings, and the "how are you coping? " lockdown check ins, both conversations moved on, to more meaty st...

Thank you Steve McQueen for Small Axe! On growing up Black and British; on systemic racism over the decades

30 Dec 2020 10 minute read 9 comments (S)llew la Wulf

  I've just finished watching the Education episode of Steve McQueen's Small Axe and like many of them, it's had me in tears, floods of them (please do listen to  Bob Marley's Small Axe in the above video as you read). I did OK at school really, com...

LIFE, RECOVERY AND HEALING POST RAPE, SEXUAL TRAUMA; PTSD

27 Dec 2020 19 minute read 2 comments (S)llew la Wulf

    I wrote the following poem and created the piece of word art to go with it in the aftermath of being raped, for the second time in my life, about 5.5 years ago. It was a revenge fantasy in some ways but was also very much tied up into my personal...

    Hello, am back from, not quite the dead but  this last week or so has been painful, arduous and I've just been slightly out of it on morphine. I am now on day 8 of healing after my knee surgery and feel like I'm turning a corner, just in time, i...

OF WOMEN AND GODDESSES; abstract cuntemporary atheism

11 Dec 2020 2 minute read 21 comments (S)llew la Wulf

I have no desire to cause offense or rub people up the wrong way but I realise that this piece of video art may well do just that. It is an attempt to express and answer, respond to this, one of many sections of the Bible, that I have found troubleso...
