The blog is named after the last words of Hunter S. Thompson before he blew his brains out. These words were:
Relax, it won’t hurt.
I am a retired journalist. For years I wrote crap and rewrote even worse press releases. Yet I realised I only thought properly when I wrote. Hence the blog. It’s the almost random thoughts, experiences and fantasies of a suburban man who never made his escape. So I write a blog, every day, to give me the momentum and the sweet flow of nearly seamless creativity. We ride for the Rio Grande.
