Savvy Article – Climatopause

Written in response to an article implying that climate change is responsible for hair loss in men.

I’m feeling it: waves of anxiety run through my inners like slow-cutting knives; my golden-orange locks thin out, to make way for razor-blade edges of silver-white; and I’m all clammy, alternately baked hot and frozen cold,

I’m nearly fifty years old.

The menopause?

No, no! Not the menopause – I am far too significant to fall prey to this monster of men! For a start, then I am a woman, so how can this man-beast have anything to do with me?

It doesn’t. Does it?

Look at me (if you really have to), and you will see:

  •  the tidal waves of an Indian Ocean tsunami
  • the orange trees of your last Spanish getaway
  •  the grey sludge of car tyres in snow
  •  the roasties from your freezer, reheated

If not the menopause, then what exactly is it? What kind of a man-beast eats away at my soul?

Freelance writer and descendant of the cave dweller and outlaw, Humphrey Kynaston. Banished from Shropshire for my eccentricity, I have made my home in Suffolk. I write poetry, short stories, travel journals, comedy gig reviews and non-fiction articles. My wish is to write my way back into the heart of my birth land. All writing commissions (and free holidays in Shropshire!) considered.
