Cluster headache and a new EP

The last few weeks have been rather painful to say the least. After battling daily headaches for a fortnight with no sign of an end in sight, I decided it was probably time I pay a begrudging visit to the doctor. The diagnosis was fairly swift; after quickly ruling out migraines, sinusitis or stress-related issues, I was diagnosed with cluster headache. Had I not inadvertently been made aware of this illness a few days prior, I might have been a little surprised. As it happened, I was somewhat relieved to have a reason for the headaches and I left the medical centre almost happy with the outcome. Of course, I was quickly brought back down to reality when the next headache kicked in, reducing me to a nervous wreck for the best part of an hour. To make matters worse, the medicine I was prescribed not only didn't seem to be working but on the sixth day I experienced a bad reaction resulting in a day spent unable to move without throwing up. That was two days ago and I am still feeling tired and run-down. Not fun. However, on the bright side, in between the headaches I have found plenty of time to continue composing and have a new set of tunes on Bandcamp. As always, they are absolutely free to listen to or download!

"Lost Cat" by Caroline Paul

"What'cha reading?"
It was over a month ago that Caroline Paul's latest book arrived on my doorstep. As per usual, the cats knew about it first and, as per usual, Tilly gave it the once over. Mind you, I didn't actually see her inspecting the post that morning but I was greeted with the familiar sight of torn paper and a series of highly incriminating bite marks... she's never been good at covering her tracks. Nevertheless, unlike my bank statement, it seems she must have deemed "Lost Cat: A True Story of Love, Desperation, and GPS Technology" acceptable and with a title like that who can blame her?

Free Running Dogs

So I was walking to work, as is customary when one has work to walk to, when I noticed an ominous bright red sign nailed to the front door of a house. Having walked the exact same path almost everyday for the past six months, I was surprised I hadn't seen it before but, then again, having walked the exact same path almost everyday for the past six months, I'm no longer in the habit of paying much attention to my surroundings. Funnily enough this also explains why I'm fairly certain that it did not, in fact, read "Caution: free running dogs".
