I tried for ages before

Posted on Sat, 04 May 2019

I tried for ages before reading, to guess what the title was about but failed utterly, it's brilliant! And how "crumbs" could be both an expression of annoyance and, literally crumbs. And how you show the real time concentration with "care..."...

Posted on Fri, 03 May 2019

you write of a friendlier

Posted on Thu, 18 Apr 2019
