Well Done!

Well Done!

I've been vegan 25 years now, I think. It's getting easier, believe me. And people like you who can articulate your ethics clearly without apportioning blame are going to help the cause. Maybe one day people will come round to...

The way you describe the walk

Posted on Sat, 20 Jan 2018

too much rhyme and rhythm???

Posted on Sun, 14 Jan 2018

too much rhyme and rhythm??? There is a feeling of joy to be had JUST  from the rhyme and rhythm when it's as good as this. "A city of gutters with rats running deep." is perfect

Posted on Sun, 07 Jan 2018

I know it is horrid and stressful when you have to keep adding it up as you go, and putting stuff back, but so long as you have enough money food shopping is such fun? Go vegan, then you won't feel guilty about meat. Shopping in the evening,...
