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...

Posted on Thu, 18 Dec 2014

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...

Posted on Fri, 16 Jan 2015

Interesting cameo of bright memories, a bit like Jolono's recent 'Under a London Sky' memories of the beginning of a courtship. I liked ''Occasion marked: Us and 'Coat-hanger tourists' too. The Brolga Dance certainly sounded...

Your collection of images in the early part of this is breathtaking as usual, and displays your noticing eye and clarity of putting the images into words succinctly for others.
