Posted on Mon, 03 Jun 2019

It's such a hard time.  I was with my mother but not my father.  As both were very old when they died and were, I think, ready to go, I choose to regard the moment of their passing as almost a minor thing compared to all the moments of their...

Agree with Jenny - it does have a pre-Raphaelite feel to it.  Lovely take on the IP, really enjoyed reading it.

Posted on Mon, 20 May 2019

As we take over more of the countryside, more and more animals are forced to scavenge in towns.  Foxes can be very successful, but it's far from an ideal environment for them.  A thoughtful and sympathetic poem.

Anniversaries and things like Mother's Day are always hard.  I'm sure your mother would be proud to know you are keeping her memory alive.

The time is indeed running

Posted on Mon, 13 May 2019

The time is indeed running out, and still the vested interests are insisting that we need more proof and evidence, more 'studies' to see what is happening.  The recent report on the loss of biodiversity was horrific.  And it is the 'small' things...

I've just caught up with these, Luigi - what a brilliant idea, and your take on it is fascinating.  I love the way you build up the story, releaasing carefully judged bits of information with each instalment.  A very enjoyable read.
