A Story of May

I was born in October, and I always knew my name was chosen as a political statement. My Dad was a member of the International Marxist Group back then. They were big in the seventies.

You have so cleverly created

Posted on Thu, 23 Jul 2020

You have so cleverly created an atmosphere where their nerves are jangling, and everyone they come across might be an enemy.  And then it's a relief when someone is kind to them, but the reader is still on edge because it might not last.  The...

Still utterly gripped by this

Posted on Mon, 13 Jul 2020

Still utterly gripped by this, but not totally convinced by Piru's 'voice'.  I understand the formality of her English, because of the way she was taught, but whereas every word Emmet and Abigail speak strengthens the character portrayal, and I...

Posted on Fri, 03 Jul 2020

Just read all the parts of this straight through, and most disappointed that there's not a link to another one!  I remember the first draft of this, which I really enjoyed, but this is another level entirely.  Utterly engrossing.  The characters...

You have such a wonderful eye

Posted on Sat, 27 Jun 2020

You have such a wonderful eye for the physical qualities of nature, but also that ability to use those things as a springboard for so many thoughtful meditations.  Beautiful and accessible poetry.  Such a pleasure to read.

Agree so much with your words

Posted on Sun, 14 Jun 2020

Agree so much with your words about 'tolerance'.  Tolerance of others is a privilege for the powerful.  

I'm going to be coming back to this one, because there's so much in there to think about.

Posted on Thu, 02 Apr 2020

There have been times when I've felt just like that.  It's a bit like when there's an eclipse of the sun, and you know it's going to come back, but then it takes longer than you thought and somewhere deep inside you a little prehistoric creature...

Completely echo Drew's comment.  I love hearing writers read their work, it always brings an extra dimension to it.  And no ashtrays heard here, either!

Another great episode, Penny.

Posted on Sun, 13 Oct 2019

Another great episode, Penny.  The trees were my favourite bit too.  Trees are indeed the guardians of our world.  

I really like the way, in this story, kindness given brings kindness back.  It's a lovely message.
