Posted on Wed, 31 Jan 2018

I just want to keep reading this, over and over.  It conveys history and emotion tthat go straight to the heart.  Quietly and beautifully it places the ordinary next to the extraordinary, defining and illuminating both.  Wonderful phrases like '...

Posted on Tue, 30 Jan 2018

Those anniversaries always lodge in our hearts.  I have a similar one myself coming up in a couple of weeks.  It sounds as though you are at peace with your lovely memories, however hard it has been.

Him:  Ah,...

Posted on Sun, 21 Jan 2018

We've all been there!  The picture in our minds is perhaps not quite what others see.  Lots of fun and life in this.

Posted on Sun, 21 Jan 2018

I'm not vegan, or even vegetarian, but I've never understood people who say others shouldn't be vegan because it's not 'natural'.  It's not 'natural' for human animals to have flush toilets or central heating, but no-one seems to have a problem...

It does feel like things are
