The Path From Tree Hill (2/5)

Even if I couldn’t see it, I knew the tree was there, solid on top of the hill. Picture: Pixabay Creative Commons

I have to say that if I ever

Posted on Tue, 27 Apr 2021

I have to say that if I ever do see the sunrise these days, it tends to be at the end of my day rather than the start! I'm another one who doesn't really do early mornings, but reading your lovely poem makes me think maybe I should give it a go...

Brought back so many memories

Posted on Tue, 15 Dec 2020

Brought back so many memories!  The feeling of pleasure when you've found something they like doing and that will keep them occupied.  The feeling of hysteria when they like it so much you're doing it or reading that story for the 240th time! ...

I thought it was a bit more

Posted on Sat, 31 Oct 2020

I thought it was a bit more ambiguous than a prank, just from the scale of the thing.  I was assuming that Mr Hain had a very special hotel and was able to produce effects that owed more than a little to 'special powers'.  However, did think it...

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...

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.

There have been times when I

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...
