I was wondering the other day whether or not I am one of the last patient people left in the modern day world that us humans have created for ourselves. You know the one, where we all run around like blue assed flies telling all and sundry that we are just too busy to keep in touch because there is so much to do! The really important things like putting a post on facebook about your recent trip to the toilet, or that you have just successfully removed the hair out of your shower stall plug-hole. Or whatever completely inane task that you’ve found to occupy yourslf for the last few minutes. But the real kicker is when we decide to buy something (being a national of shoppers now because the government has got rid of all other happy pursuits!) that we just have got to have NOW! The real fun part is when it is an object that needs putting together and the instructions need to be consulted. How many tmes have we heard the words, “Don’t need them, it’s easy!” Only to find that half an hour later the air has turned blue, to be turned bluer when our friend comes around, read the instructions and rectifies the problem almost instantly! We can take this example and put it to our whole life really. Just take a step back, count to ten and be PATIENT. But this wonderful P word seems to be forgotten in our such busy, not enough hours in the day lifestyle. Shall we be honest with each other? We’re not that busy are we? A lot of the things we find to occupy ourselves with are honestly quite inane pursuits aren’t they? And yet we try and make out to each other how what we are doing as individuals is sooooo much more interesting and important than anyone else that we know! Deep down we know that really they are not, so why not think before that next post on facebook, or tweet, or whatever social network and say to ourselves, “Isn’t there something less boring to do instead? Something more interesting and rewarding?” try it, we may just end up being somewhat more sociable, in person, and that couple of moments patience will be all that is needed to do it! I live in hope….

Got my degree at University of Cumbria (Lancaster) in English Lit and Creative Writing and now find how difficult it really is to make yourself write everyday. Hardest job in the world! Now a few years on I realise just how hard. Wordsworth was right, movement is so important to creativity...So a few years on now and over 50 walking football is seemingly the movement needed!
