*sits back* Hello! Welcome to a weekly meme I’ve decided to create… quick info:
Coffee? Because personally I find coffee bitter, and don’t like it. But if you want some, go ahead!
Let’s Chat. I want to just chat about my week… you know, talk about stuff that’s been happening. And maybe ask you guys questions?
And let’s sit down, enjoy the coffee (if you drink it), and chat.
So… my week.
This post is just to give you links to the dance and sheet music for Saint-Saens’ piece Le Cygne (The Swan) from Carnival of the Animals.

DISCLAIMER: This post is simply my own thoughts and opinions. I am in no way trying to make you feel bad, or nag at you not to ride horses. These simply a post about a question that has come into my mind a lot since last night.
If you saw my previous post on the fact that I am starting to go vegetarian, you’d know that I’d brought up the question of ethics and eating animals. The gist of it was that I found eating meat to be a form of cannibalism, and as someone with deep respect for animals, I felt that I couldn’t keep doing that.
Looking on the internet about vegetarianism, I rediscovered a YouTube channel I’ve seen before, run by a vegan woman. Yes, I know that she’s been called out countless times, that’s she’s a faker, whatever. I’ve seen it all. That’s not the point of me telling you this, though.
The point is that I went over to have a look at her instagram. And I found this post:
I say starting, because I amen’t officially vegetarian. I’m still eating meat. But I’m weaning myself off it.
So basically I decided I wanted to go vegetarian in 2017.
And… argh. This is so hard to write.
Back in September the wonderful Dario Cannizzaro approached me to review his first published collection of short stories: Of Life, Death, Aliens and Zombies.
And no, I’m not usually the type of person to read about zombies! But I gave it a go, and was quite astonished at the level of contemplation on life, plus the quality of Dario’s writing. Read my review for the book here
Dario was kind enough to agree to be interviewed… read on to discover more about his writing, life, and advice!
