About oomph


I'm 6'2". I'm widowed and have a small dog who looks after me. I work and am contemplating a change. I think I'm just a vert as I'm neither an extra or intra.

I'm a handy person. I've renovated an old house and made it beautiful again. I try to write. I try to draw. My drawings are very different and I like them. I'm a gardener and specialised in ferns until the drought.

Windmill Craters

Frank had maintained an interest in wind farms for a long time. Often he’d gaze at them, the majesty of the blades as they circled was beautiful. He knew they generated electricity without a carbon foot print and was concerned that some people protested against them. He thought the issues through, the hazard of the blades to birds, which he acknowledged, but considered so minimal it...

Loving Corka

Crikey can go anywhere with me and he doesn’t have to wear clothes. He only wears a medal and a collar. This year his medal is red. Last year it was blue. Before that it was green and it didn’t suit him. He only has his collar replaced when needed. He’s proud of his outfit. He should be; it’s better than mine. He’s never worn clothes and he’s old. I’m envious. I can’t go anywhere naked....

My third foot didn’t grow very well. Compared with my other two it was very small. It wasn’t useful at all. I could see what was meant to be a foot and it was badly deformed. I knew I had to do something about it if I was to become a yard. Maybe people are like balloons and slowly we are inflated. I knew I couldn’t depend on that. My Dad said that manure makes things grow. He said it...

Wisps. “Look up! Look up! For God’s sake, look up! Can’t you see the wisps? I’m surrounded by them. Please look up. Please. Please don’t cry. I love you. I love you so very, very much. I can’t reach you. Forgive me, I can’t reach. The wisps are holding me. It’s difficult to breathe. I just want to dry your eyes. Kiss them dry. I’m sorry. I’m...

Copyright: oomph 2011 I say clothes are an unnecessary inconvenience. But my Mum says they’re necessary and not an inconvenience. She makes me wear them. She always makes me wear them. And because I’ve always had to, I’ve tried to make it easier. It’s been difficult. First, I tried doing without shoes and socks. But my Mum always saw that I didn’t have them on and would tell me to put them...
