About me

Location East Sussex, United Kingdom
Introduction I used to work in mental health, but have been disabled by neuropathic pain since 2004. I live on the south coast of England with my partner Angie and our cat Tally, and occupy my time with photography, writing about chronic pain, and lots of self help. Peace activism having proven hazardous to my emotional health, I'm increasingly looking for a kind of inner peace, and so the character of this blog has changed over time. The theme of a search for peace remains, however. Please feel free to share and comment! Unless otherwise credited, all text and images are the copyright of Michael Bentley.
