My John the Baptist Years

I used to be a corporate whore, and I stayed in nice hotels, and ate in nice restaurants.... but it didn't satisfy me. I had sexy girlfriends, who thought I was funny... but didn't understand me, and that left an empty space I needed to nourish.

They were my John the Baptist years, my wandering in the desert years.

I set up Hot Vimto as a vehicle to reconnect to my creative inner child through reminiscence, smut, and rock and roll, but I have had to accept that I can't even describe myself on my own terms! At least, not to my satisfaction. I have been pretty messed up over the course of my life, and the most important thing has been re-connecting with my integrity.

Ohhhhhhhhhh.....now SEE--I understand multiple parts of this one.

Purely based on my own experience, thankyou.
Cuz.

I don't know that I ever had integrity to begin with--but it's been awesome making it a huge part of the me that I am today.
WAY cool.

damn, do we ALL have to do this at some stage. the empty searching and running and looking in all the wrong places... looking forward to getting to know your creative inner child!

Bravo! Most people seem to ignore the running narrative in their head and they have no idea of who is up their talking to them?

I always liked the way Bowie phrased it in Ch-ch-ch-anges..

Still don't know what I was waiting for
And my time was running wild
A million dead-end streets and
Every time I thought I'd got it made
It seems the taste was not so sweet
So I turned myself to face me
But I've never caught a glimpse
Of how the others must see the faker
I'm much too fast to take that test
