I had read this and wanted to wait and understand more clearly when there were comments. But what I found powerful were the phrases 'A stinging lock In time tattered, her voice speaks frayed words', but especially that last phrase....

Posted on Tue, 30 Apr 2019

I like the title! There are always those unasked questions! And simple tasks and smells bring back memories and persons so keenly. In Welsh we would say that my grandmoher used 'the notion of the eye not the hand' I think, in measuring her flour...

I like this very much, too. I remember the word 'phototropism' from biology experiments on plants growing towards the light, but hadn't though of 'heliotropism' indicating turning towards the sun. And so I hadn't realised that is where the name...

Very credible situation with his Dad. Interesting how it comes out here the real concern his mother does have for him, and his awareness of that, though their communication together is difficult.  In some ways his special phobias/worries seem to...

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...

You do seem to be able to describe his thinking very naturally, and his observations, looking into the water, noticing the small life, and drifting into imaginations.
Then suddenly the tensions, mirrored a bit by his grandad's tensions. It...

Welcome, you are new here, aren't you? You've drawn out an interesting and tender theme here.

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...
