Some interesting ideas,

Posted on Fri, 04 Aug 2017

Some interesting ideas, especially those about cultural deja vu.  It does need a bit of proof-reading - at first I thought the typos in the para beginning 'Occasionally, the living of...' might be deliberate, as part of the dislocation, but they...

Posted on Fri, 28 Jul 2017

So much truth in this.  The incomplete ending is often the hardest to accept - as you say, not knowing the crime, not getting any answers.  The last stanza really hits home, recognizable to anyone who has been in a similar situation.  Thank you...

You capture the odd, surreal

Posted on Thu, 27 Jul 2017

You capture the odd, surreal nature of a dream very well in the first part of this story.  I like the flashes of humour as well.  Personally I'm not a fan of 'it was all a dream' endings - although, again, there are some nice touches of humour...

Well done on your own 300.  Here's to the next 300.

Brilliant story.  I had a smile at 'unburdened by burger' - yes, you're an artist.

Posted on Fri, 21 Jul 2017

Enjoyed reading this.  I was bored by science and maths at school, but then as I got older I realised how much I'd missed.  I wasn't so bothered about the answers, I just wanted to understand the questions.  A couple of years ago I took evening...

Hi, good to see you back on

Posted on Sun, 23 Jul 2017

Hi, good to see you back on the site!  I have lots of sympathy with this.  I have not yet reached the level of resisting all upgrades, but I do tend only to replace if it breaks.  Perhaps indeed it is an age and experience thing - the only thing...

Hello!  Welcome to ABC Tales

Posted on Fri, 21 Jul 2017

Hello!  Welcome to ABC Tales - lovely to have you here.

I like reworkings of fairy tales.  They always lend themselves to reinterpretation and I enjoyed your poem.  I'm no poetry critic either, so I can only offer a personal point of view...

Fascinating, Jean.  I was watching the Proms the other night, Daniel Barenboim conducting a programme of English music, and they played both 'Nimrod' (always reduces me to tears) and 'Pomp and Circumstance'.  The detail in this is wonderful -...

What a lovely story!  Glad

Posted on Sun, 16 Jul 2017

What a lovely story!  Glad that it all worked out in the end.  I love the idea of having that chant as a ring tone.  Currently I have The Beatles' 'Don't Bother Me', which has always seemed appropriate, but you've given me something to think...
