One thing you will

find by doing this, is that your description in any prose you do write will be tighter, more compact, more effective, it's something I was told would happen if I wrote more poetry. I'm not completely sure it has for me, but it will for you....

It's the mothballs

I remember, and the faint smell of Lion pee and Turkish Delight.... hahaha. I do not know anyone who has never explored their parents' wardrobe. When I was 8, my dad's wardrobe had hundreds of football programmes from the 40's and 50's; Rangers...

One or two things. Incognito is one word.
Kirk is almost exclusively used for Church in the Church of Scotland. Your priest(s) are Catholics, I presume, since they practise the rite of Exorcism.

I wonder

Nice

looking back, sometimes. Old pals who took apprenticeships at 16 haven't lifted a tool in 30 years.  Policemen some of them, or RAC men. The lucky few might do some shop-fitting though they're time-served carpenters and joiners. One lathe-turner...

It's funny

Posted on Thu, 07 Jun 2018

if you'd asked me 10 years ago about the cathartic benefits of writing, I'd have laughed in your face. How wrong can one be? I suppose the point is it enables you (me, one etc.) to take your feelings outside and examine them, turning them over to...
