The Disappearing World







This album has been keeping me going this past week. It's quite possibly one of my favourite albums and it has been on constant rotation in my place throughout the week. I always wonder just what is going on in Kate's head.

My head is no clearer, although I'm not complaining. I am totally absorbed by my writing. I had drinks with a friend of mine last week who told me that the last moments of her PhD were completely absorbed by writing and ignoring the world, which is precisely my situation at the moment. It's not so much that I'm stressed, more like I've never enjoyed writing so much that I have wanted to ignore absolutely everything around me. There have been days in the past week that I have been so consumed with writing that I have forgotten to eat. One moment it's early morning, the next it's evening and I haven't eaten anything. I'm sure this is not healthy, and I really don't need to be any thinner than I already am, but I simply don't care. I have never been so exhilarated in my life with writing and the ideas in my head won't stop their continual cycle.

Anyway, I'll leave you with one of my favourite Kate Bush videos as I get back to it ...
