About me

S R Clarke (RIBD) Architect

My name is Steve Clarke, I was born in 1969, I’m a Manchester United fan and enjoy listening to 80′s pop music, but I like to think of myself as being a fit and with-it forty something; keeping up with current trends in both music and fashion. I’ve been married for ten years to Sarah, we have two wonderful children Thomas and Lucy and a menagerie of pets.

Shirley, my meticulously personal assistant, is my rock against telephone time-wasters and has been invaluable since setting up my Architectural business eight years ago.

I’m a workaholic, or so I’m frequently told and according to close family and friends I live the American dream, but my reality is so very different. I feel trapped, most of the time, on life’s roller coaster ride of appointments and disappointments, bewildered by my mid-life crisis of grey, receding hair – which I’m told is testament to my forty-four shades of wisdom. I’m suffering from the onset of middle aged spread – too many puddings and chocolate bars – a good substitute for sex!

Sarah argues I’ve a diminishing libido and live in this fantasy world, but isn’t that normal at my time of life? And there’s no harm done?

Like a window cleaner, I see through my clients shiny facade; witnessing their lives warts and all. And it would be selfish not to share.

Faithful is the first of many adventures and the unravelling of my ‘mid-life crisis.’

Fidelity, the second in the series and available soon, continues a self discovery through the lives of others; stripping back another painful layer, like peeling an onion, and like my shrink you’ll be on hand every step of the way.

I sincerely hope you enjoy the journey, told in my own unique way.

    Hi Steve. Thanks for the follow. Be aware, please, my blog is a bilingual one.
    So you may get links to some poems in English as well as to some in Italian.
    When you do not know the language just ignore the email, please.
    I’m trying to keep the posting balanced between the two languages.

    It will be a delight to follow and read. I understand the big bad ‘midlife crisis’ well…men no longer own the rights to that one;) Thank you for stopping by my blog and having a read:)
