A cup of tea in a glass mug

In this post I’ll be offering a round-up of the articles I’ve published on Perfect Chaos over the last couple of weeks. I’ll also give a few brief reflections on what’s happening in my life at this time, plus a Question of the Week which I’d love for you to answer in the comments. Let’s get started!

Recent Posts

On July 23rd I published this post asking for your feedback about which of two album covers you prefer. I designed the covers for my album project and it was fantastic to get your feedback. More info on where I’m at with the project in the personal reflections below.

On July 27th I gave a detailed update of the situation involving my neighbour and his antisocial behaviour. I was so happy to receive your support and prayers, and I’ll give an update on the situation below. If you missed the post, you can read all about my tricky situation here.

On July 31st I published a philosophy post entitled The Experience of Understanding. In the post I explore why it is we are able to read a sentence and understand it. This is a deep post that stimulated some interesting discussion. If you missed it, you can catch up here.

A Few Personal Reflections

  • I’ve been busy getting ready for my album release. I’m happy to say I’ve now decided the album title and have finalised the artwork. I’ll be announcing all the details, including who won the competition to decide the title, this coming Friday. The release date for the album is 10th September 2018. If you’re new to this blog you can read all about the project here.
  • Some of you will be curious to know what’s been happening with my neighbour. You may recall that the housing association representative was going to write a general letter to all residents about antisocial behaviour. I haven’t received a letter, but I’ve noticed my neighbour’s music has been less loud than usual, so I’m hopeful that he did receive a letter and has taken it seriously. That would be AMAZING. On the other hand, it could be that the letters simply haven’t arrived yet. I’ll keep you posted!
  • This afternoon I’ll be spending some quality time in prayer, and I’ll be sure to lift up all my readers to the Lord and ask for His blessing and favour over your lives in the coming week. So if you’re reading this, know that you’re covered with at least my prayers as we go into the new week 🙏🏻

Question of the Week

What will your next blog post be about?
Let me know in the comments below!



  1. Steven, I wish you much success on your album release. Thank you for you prayers also my friend. I’m not exactly sure what my next blog will be about, I normally go where spirit leads me. Many Blessings Steven

  2. Hey Steven, always look forward to your posts!
    I’m praying about my next posts…perhaps an update on the New York Times article about Haven Avenue – and the patience needed to wait for it! In Crushed By God, I may re-blog a post to honor a godly brother who suffers greatly but stands as a powerful testimony for the Lord.
    Still praying for you and your neighbor too!

  3. Thank you, your prayers are appreciated. As for my next post, I have a few in the works. I’m not sure yet which one will win the weekly lottery. Like Elana, I wait for the spirit to pick my topic. It’s always interesting to see what comes out. Have an awesome week, Steven😁

  4. Ah, I have missed reading your posts. It has been a busy summer, and now I start back to teaching. I hope that your neighbor keeps his music down permanently. I just posted my next blog and titled it Cheez Whiz Jesus. It is about shedding off religiosity and following Christ as a real person, not a fake version of what we think He wants…

  5. I am excited about your album release.

    About your neighbour, I believe you can ignore him. Focus your attention on what’s important and let go of things you can’t control.

    With time, he’ll change.

    My next post will be about managing your Mouth.

    Thanks for praying for me.

    1. Hi Faith! Good to hear from you. I like your advice, and I think that’s actually the approach I’ve been taking / am going to take. The only problem is that the loud music is difficult to simply ignore as I can hear it in my flat. But there are things I can do, like go to a cafe. I’m very blessed to have my own space.

      Will look forward to checking out your next post. God bless!


  6. Congratulations on your album release, wishing you much success with that. Music has a way of bringing people together, bless you! Thank you for the prayer and I will share that prayer with Noah an 11-year-old boy whose been in ICU for the past 3 weeks battling Stevens-Johnson syndrome. My next blog will be about not only his strength to regain control of his body, but his mother’s strength and love for him. Life Lessons continue to keep my razor edge sharp.

    1. So sorry to hear about young Noah. Have you commented about him in the past as that situation definitely rings a bell? Or maybe it was someone else. Will say a prayer for him anyway. God bless you and thanks for all your comments!
