How much simpler it would be

Posted on Sun, 11 Aug 2019

How much simpler it would be if people just smiled when they were happy, instead of for other reasons too!  'Happy' is quite a complicated emotion, of course, and means different things to each individual, but it's a nice thought.

All I can say is - exactly so

Posted on Fri, 26 Jul 2019

All I can say is - exactly so!  Spun sugar is a wonderful way of putting it.  There are things on the news this morning that indicate that it is all indeed a triumph of style over substance.  Mind you, I'm not exactly impressed by the style.

Lovely image of friends

Posted on Fri, 26 Jul 2019

Lovely image of friends enjoying food and drink together.  I'm not sure I shall ever look at Lucozade in the same way again!

I hope this comment stays put - I know you've been affected by the mysterious loss of comments on the site, so...

Great build up of tension,

Posted on Thu, 25 Jul 2019

Great build up of tension, with the description of heat adding to it as it goes along, and then the shocking conclusion.  Looking forward to the next part.

I had no idea that you moved

Posted on Thu, 13 Jun 2019

I had no idea that you moved in such exalted circles, Rich!  Cameron AND Stewart - you have all my sympathy.  That we have come to such a pass here that Rory Stewart seemed like the only sane option.  I have been following the Democrat debates...

The bunkers certainly weren't

Posted on Sun, 16 Jun 2019

The bunkers certainly weren't intended for us common folk!  I remember how they banned 'The War Game' from the telly because they thought it would scare people so much we would all rise up and demand disarmament.  I saw it at a film club a few...

Welcome to the site.  And

Posted on Sat, 08 Jun 2019

Welcome to the site.  And what better debut on a writing site than a horror story all about words!  I think quite a few of us probably suffer from Etyopathomania.  I really, really want to find a copy of the Humongous Collation of Proverbs and...

I do like those last two

Posted on Sat, 08 Jun 2019

I do like those last two lines.  Sometimes it does feel as though those shadows are following us through life.  One or two decisions either way and everything might have been different.

It's such a hard time.  I was

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...
