One Moment

For weeks, writing has been beyond me.  It felt as if everything was beyond me; I have been staggering under the weight of stress from hour to hour. Now the parole hearing is at last behind me.

Sitting out at the end of the wing this evening, my back against the warm brick of the wall, I fell into the moment. The sun was setting, the sky was clear and the rabbits were popping around on the lawns.

It was the first time I have felt a moment of stillness for such a long time.

I think I am back.


  1. I really hope you are and waiting desperately foryour news. Keep strong.

  2. Lovely to see you again Ben. Popping on and off here multiple times to see if any news so how it must be for you and yours I can't even imagine.

  3. Back to what? ... Back to black?

  4. Hello Ben, I'm so glad you're finding your 'center' again ;).

  5. Hi Ben,
    Glad to hear you're in a better place inside yourself.
    Just take it one day at a time, it will get better and try to capture the moment every day.
    Keep strong.

  6. Well battled Ben. A welcome break in the clouds....
