The Black Dog Blog (now 12 years on) contains some 500 posts, so thought I’d do some rewinding on particular topics.  Here’s to …. Being enough and the rejection of all things ‘superfied’  …

Army of Ink  – Enough.   If I was Made of Chocolate.  Think You Want.  Wisdoms of Rose – Wish Upon Yourself.   Drawing A Line.  Army of Ink – Blow The Man Down.  With Integrity. Robin Small.  For Rubbish Self Esteem.  Free Yourself/Birdman Movie.  Bob Dylan on Destiny.
