Thank you Insert. I find the weekly IP a good inspiration. We are fascinated and frightened by the idea that aliens might invade and destroy Earth but are we just talking about ourselves?

I really enjoyed reading this

Posted on Wed, 26 Sep 2018

I really enjoyed reading this, it brought to life a typical suprmarket shift complete with misery and the type of characters which seem to crop up in most workplaces. It recall my own stint in 'provisions', I got a verbal warning for failing to...

This is like a time capsule

Posted on Tue, 14 Feb 2023

This is like a time capsule Jenny, crafting from words a picture which we can all see. Somehow our depiction of past times seems more innocent than today's world but I don't know if that's actually true or we were just more naive. The pubs were...

We certainly are blessed, Jenny. Sometimes I wonder why we go to such lengths to make our own entertainment when all thise is just outside, it's a shame many children don't have much access to nature and this world in luminosity.

Posted on Sat, 16 Jul 2022

A beautiful little tree holds so much promise for the future as long as we respect it. I often think of what those great old oak trees have witnessed in their lifetimes. We could really do with some rumbles of thunder and a good soaking but the...

This is like a short holiday and just what I needed to read today. I'm glad you didn't cut it short. I could feel the heat from the sandstone and imagine the long grasses clinging. 'No time for regrets'. This is one to revisit.

Posted on Mon, 09 May 2022

Loved a den as a child and would have one now if I had a larger patch of garden. There are few things more restorative than immersing yourself in the wild among branches entwining, listening to the distant buzzing. I really love the way you've...

Posted on Thu, 21 Apr 2022

'gingered bracken' - I love this description and the photographs are beautiful. The way you've included a glider, it adds another dimension and forces you to imagine the view from above as well as at ground level. The whole thing is very...

I can imagine how all those soft colours blend together beneath the spring sunshine. It's lovely to see the sheep and lambs in Wales but I can't help wondering if they will become a rarer sight with changing consumer habits and increasing...
