I do like your adjectives in

Posted on Tue, 26 Mar 2019

I do like your adjectives in these, they make everything you list fun and real. I loved it when it was a fresh piece of paper, all smooth and cool with infinite possibilities of what it could become, and I got to choose, like being an...

All natural things in this

Posted on Sat, 23 Mar 2019

All natural things in this one. Clever to think of sun making you brown! I bet that would appeal to a child. And not just gravy, thick gravy :0) And scuttling spiders. What great variety of emotions you evoke here!

wow, this is lovely! Particularly like your description of daffoldils as "golden, dazzling clumps" and the new lambs "dancing, exploring and urgently feeding"

That's beautiful!

You have time as well as space in here, both your time there and future when the crops have grown. And the way the last line opens up is wonderful

I remember the lorry one, it

Posted on Wed, 13 Mar 2019

I remember the lorry one, it was very funny :0) Have your whippets really caught squirrels??? My lurcher never did, but would sing/yelp/whine under trees as if his enthusiasm would make them fall out dazed. Whippets are the most beautiful...

This is amazing and brilliant

Posted on Tue, 12 Mar 2019

This is amazing and brilliant, best thing I have ever read on this subject.

My son was in care for a while and we were told we might not get him back. People thought it was a consolation we might meet him when he was grown up. It is...

I used to like taking

Posted on Mon, 04 Mar 2019

I used to like taking pictures (can't get them in focus now) but I think you are right, something about how you have to objectify what you see, to make it fit into the frame, diminishes it. To stand there and soak in the sunset, to ACCEPT  it,...

I like all the layers in this

Posted on Mon, 04 Mar 2019

I like all the layers in this, exploring so many ideas, whether we work to live or live to work, if you can live forever as a virtual mind in an artificial body, if that is the way mankind will colonise space, space debris, loss of resources. I...

I know what it feels like

Posted on Sun, 03 Mar 2019

I know what it feels like when all the voices get too loud and it's like they are battering you, you describe it so well. And then going outside where there are birds which can fly, it's a great contrast, the lightness after the heaviness. Also,...
