Thimbles

It's not really about thimbles, I have a lisp. You could use three and a pea for the shell game. Does anyone use them now? Image source pixel.com

Spring is Late this Year

I found this. It was written in 2010. I'd been living in Spain for six years by then. I was doing A363 Creative Writing with the OU. Lord knows how much that would cost now. Aunty Betty paid for mine, part of the resettlement deal when you left after a long period of becoming institutionalised. I can't remember if it was even submitted for assessment. Don't think so. Anyway, it's a late bloomer's equivalent of juvenilia, I suppose. I've put two commas in. Treat it kindly. When the rainy month came in March or April, (there is only ever one per winter in Andalucia) I longed for Spring to start. Pic is used under CC.0 Public domain. Source PxHere.com

The Visitable Past

The title was coined by Henry James, I'm not sure he quite meant what I've made of it. The image is mine, and the photo I took of it is quite deliberately blurred
