Martin says:

I’ve been reading “Mentally Interesting” for several weeks, and have enjoyed the writer’s style. It’s a very personal blog, and often covers Manic Depression from personal experience. Seaneen, the author, was interviewed recently for the BBC Radio 4 programme “All in the Mind”. Her interview will be broadcast as part of the programme on Tuesday December 2nd at 9pm, and it will be available to listen again on BBC iPlayer for 7 days after this. Seaneen has also written for the BBC’s “Ouch” website recently.


No Spark of Life

September 20, 2008

An oven flooding with gas
A starter-motor whirring in an engine not turning
A match scraping not striking
A boiler-clock clicking not firing
Gears jumping not engaging
Water steaming not bubbling
Cigarette lighter flicking not igniting
Batter baking not rising
