Hello, salaam, salut, tag, hola, aloha, hej!
I go by the pseudonym Pola Negri, a cheeky little reference to a silent film actress.
In 2013, three years after my first episode, I was formally diagnosed with Bipolar 2 Disorder, and this blog is partly a place to explore that from an informed, articulate perspective.
Mainly it is my place on the internet to write, and scare myself silly at the prospect of by being read, by other writers, or Escritori the members of this venerable Escritorium.
Escritorium is a word I made up, purely because I thought a ‘moratorium’ was a Gothically romantic building, (you know, the kind with an impressive library) that I could use to express what my blog was.
It’s kind of like when you were younger and imagined that fellatio was some kind of Italian musical term, to be found on Victorian sheet music.
Just me? The moral is don’t use words you don’t know the meaning of.
Actually, a ‘moratorium’ is just a legal term for a suspension of activity.
This works out quite nicely because it allows me to happily invite you, to instate a moratorium from daily life, at The Escritorium.
The place where I bank all my scribblings for all of you to read.
