Choose Life

Choose life.

Choose a mask.

Choose social distancing.

Choose hand gel and hand sanitizer.

Choose Covid tracing.

Choose family/friend bubbles.

Choose Netflix.


I chose not to choose Jimmy Choos or stuff that promotes a non-circular economy.

I choose to write a blog.

Its aim being to make people smile.

To beguile.

For a moment. Not for a while.

To celebrate my crazy.

Eschew being lazy.

To celebrate what may be.

I may be right; I may be wrong.

Either way I sing my song.

Alone or when I need to belong.

What I say won’t change the world.

But it may make your stress unfurl.



I have watched the original trainspotting for what must be the tenth time. The opening scene where the characters are introduced to the ‘choose life’ monologue as voiced by Ewan McGregor is probably one of my favorite opening scenes of any movie.


The soundtrack is off the scale brilliant also. Danny Boyle is a genius at choosing old school songs and new songs that complement each other. Every character is extraordinary and I loved when they re enacted the movie poster on Graham Norton for Trainspotting 2, twenty years after the original.



That’s all for now

Stay fab
