Finding distractions along the road

Regrettably, my quest to avoid dealing with it has led to my avoiding posting here. I’ll rectify that as soon as possible, because I recognise that I need to deal with it, and if I want to make this blog  the source of support that I would like to offer, I need to post a lot more often. (Daily would probably be an idea.) Origami has become a primary distraction for me, as I’ve written before. Trying to work out just why the wings of a paper crane won’t separate is a good way to avoid thinking about the headstone in particular. (That remains my main source of consternation, although I’m pretty sure that there being a headstone, or a headstone having been ordered does not make Kim any more dead.

Another of my distractions, even more bizarre than origami, is the Snooker World Championship, which got underway in Sheffield, England on the sixteenth of April. There’s something very absorbing about snooker- once you start watching, it’s very difficult to drag yourself away. (Whilst half of the country have been glued to the Royal Wedding today I’ve watched pretty much every minute of the Ding Junhui v. Judd Trump and John Higgins v. Mark Williams snooker matches on the BBC website. (Although I did see the blessing at the end of the Royal Wedding.)
