There's a reason this place is called Mim's Muddle, it's no use telling you what sort of stuff you'll see here because I don't know myself until it gets written. This is my brag book, my journal, my (occasional) ranting space and my creative corner of the interwebs. Come on in and have a look around, hopefully you'll find something to amuse or interest you!

Avian Assault

Untaken paths.

I’ve just finished reading The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. It was, of course, wonderful. This post is not about the book. “Face your life Its pain, its pleasure, Leave no path untaken” There are paths I didn’t take in life.

The edges of things

Where the mountains meet sky Where rocks break sea Where skin touches skin And breath is breathed in Where a knife’s edge curls wood Where hands shape clay Where thought becomes form And beauty is made Where minds grow invention Where pen marks page Where words start stories And ink bleeds and fades Where streams […]
