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.

    He took us on 2 ski trips, where we could do as we pleased……taking up smoking for one (a habit i still have). I also remember him letting me use his accommodation to watch tv even if he wasn’t there.
    About the only teacher I look back on with fond regard.

    Just wanted to say how much I enjoy reading your blog entries. They provoke broader thinking and turn on lights in the rooms we’d rather leave dark.

    Howard Burnham is my Dad; I gather you guys were at school together.

    Fuck you, Hugh, you racist cuntbag. Wandsworth doesn’t want you, and neither does the rest of the world. Also, your writing is corny and dull, you prick.
