A tale I heard

Lyrics from 'Head Rolls Off' by Frightened Rabbit:

“When it's all gone something carries on and it's not morbid at all, just when nature's had enough of you. When my blood stops, someone else's will have not. When my head rolls off, someone else's will turn. And while I'm alive I'll make tiny changes to Earth.”

(To mark the first anniversary of the death of the band's lead singer Scott Hutchison, take a look at the new mental health charity set up in his honour called Tiny Changes. And, if you're in a position to, a donation would always be welcomed.)

A tale I wrote

You know the tiny pocket that lives inside your jeans pocket? What’s that for? Is it a pocket for your pocket? Does your pocket keep its pocket money in there? Its pocket knife? Its pocket dictionary? Probably not, it’s too small to hold a dictionary. Or is it? Surely a pocket’s pocket dictionary is even smaller than our pocket dictionaries. How many words does a pocket need to know? Wallet. Coins. Change. Fingers. Keys. Fluff. Why don’t jogging bottoms have tiny pockets in their pockets? Maybe jogging bottom pockets don’t carry things when they go jogging. Makes sense.
