Sloth is …

will shirk to work
and feels the appeal
of why not time steal
from the criticised boss,
if possible...

Deep Change

A wolf that wears a fleece,
a raven painted white –
neither will ever cease
the weak to hunt and bite.

It would be quite...

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...

Stephen, I don't manage to

So much of artifical flowers

I can only say, how compassionate and caring the staff are where my father-in-law is. (and it is just a basic nursing home, largely council funded, they have recently introduced a very minimal top-up and of course there is always means testing)....

I really liked the way you slipped in the descriptions of the garden eg ' the smell of pine as refreshing as a bucket of snow, needles crunching underfoot.' That whole paragraph seems to have so much vivid description just tucked in...

Posted on Sun, 25 Jan 2015
