The Curiouser

The 31 days project has had a revamp. My original intention behind the 31 days project was to share some broader insights into alternative ways that we could understand and reframe pain. After much reflection I’ve come to realise that this page is about expressing my curiosity. So I’ve given it a name change to better reflect what the 31 days project fundamentally was about – sparking curiosity and creativity.

Welcome to the Curiouser entire back catalogue of my 31 days project. I have placed all the days down for quick reference.  There a lots of messages here about why pain happens, how it happens, what causes it to happen and how it can be managed. More recently I have begun to add philosophical and critical analysis of clips, music and artwork and how they relate to my profession.

Hope you enjoy and if you want to chat about any of them then please drop me a comment or email at
