Embarrassment!

Do you know the story of Thomas and the mine? the roof broke, he fell in, because he’d disobeyed the sign. His pride thought he knew better … – triumphantly he went right past, and thought it quite a laugh.

‘ … to see oursels as ithers see us!’

Posted on Fri, 12 Feb 2016

Thought-provoking, Jean, and I can empathize with much that is on your mind. As a family, when I was growing up we didn't kiss, hug, or say 'I love you' much, but I think we were at ease with each other and had a warmth of expression in greeting...

Posted on Wed, 07 Jan 2015

This reminded me of when my son was being taught about the 'rules of composition' for music, and I worried he would lose what seemed to be spontaneous and individual intuition for what would make interesting sound. He assured me it wouldn't, but...

Trying to see where you're coming from in this, PT. It's because of the suffering, death, sin, that God is doing something. I know we would like him to sort it all out at ths moment,  but just like the prophecies concerning his first...

Posted on Thu, 11 Dec 2014

Stephen, I don't manage to dip much into the prose section, and horror and surreal isn't really my scene – I didn't even like 'Alice in Wonderland' as a child! However I did find reading this intriguing for the well-structured brevity, and the...

Describing well temptation's voice and the confusing reasoning and depression induced. Showing so clearly the need of a good friend at one's side to help if the cycle is really to be broken, and of course the Holy Spirit's help can make such a...

Got the calypso rhythm

Posted on Thu, 25 Aug 2016

Got the calypso rhythm somehow, Linda! I liked the way you showed the forced rhythm - a bit like I had to do in my limericks. I hope there is a lot of safe enjoyment of the music, in playing, hearing and (gentle!) shaking, and laughter and...
