|Frank;disambiguation: a very honest bloke I know|
Firstly I apologise for my outright abandonment of the blog.
I was exclusively, executively and officially "white collared", which to be frank (Frank; disambiguation: a very honest bloke I know) I found did not "suit" me very well.
At the risk of this preamble sounding like the plot of a rather well known TV series I am ecstatic to announce that I, much like the unreformed criminal, have returned to the art that I love and adore, to the cheap thrills and tingles down my spine that instant gratification provides, to the Life…….of Controversy.

by the human race,
by our loved ones, and
P.S. Over the coming weeks I aim to commit to uploading a post ever other day at the least and restarting the digging up diamonds and phraseology series.
