My stories

She Dreamed A Dream

I could probably recite every line from this film. My heart soars when I watch it.

Play It For Me

This was fun, but so, so tempting to give the game away.

A Curious Angel

They say 'home is were the heart is...' and this is defintely at the heart of my existance.

Looking Forwards - 1974

The last in a trilogy of years that shaped the very fabric of my life to date....I made the mistake of not proof reading before I posted. The orginal made perfect sense at 4 a.m.

Part 2 of the Union: 1973

Sadly, I have had to put an age restriction on this part of my diaries, but it was essential for the purposes of continuity and relevance to my journey; one that was fast gathering pace. The fragmented reference to 'Union' is a homage to tthe Strawbs and the song 'Part Of the Union' which was popular at the time.

Classroom Assistants are vastly underated and underpaid.  Their value to any truly colaboratively minded teacher is invaluable.

I always listen to their advice and observations; they have a much clearer picture of the individual student...

i loved this poem.  I spent years splashing cash thinking it would impress.  Then my daughter came along with gifts that meant so much and I was transformed.  A message of love in each gift.  Caring...a huge plus in the world  of giving.

This is an amazing piece of writing.  The only thing wrong with it is that I wish that I'd written it.  I write a lot of stuff about the Cosmos and time itself.  This hits so many different levels and resonates in each.

It is more than...

Sadly no. It was good old Google images,  but as a child I would walk the lonely beaches and wonder at what the tide had brought in...where it came from, what stories it had to tell...I think you get my drift

I love poems that evoke imanges and this one (for me) is full of them.  I was also taken to 'Nowhere Man' by the Beatles and 'Crossroads' by Don McLean. I guess its the roads connection, but for me poems that take my mind on a journey are worth...

Your work never dissapoints and I simply adored the rhythm of this poem.  For some reason I was transported back to a famous piece of work 'the night mail' and the rhythm in that. A really inspiring piece of work Rhiannon.  Well done...again!

I loved the line '...Ivy chains'  Why did it take so long for me to discover your writing?  Keep it turning.  That wheel of talent.

Truly uplifting and the ultimate test....................rereadable again and again.

Posted on Thu, 28 Jul 2016

So powerful and so frightening.  I still have a fear of being lonely even with my family around me.  Wonderful writing.  I felt as if I was inside Tilly's head watching and sharing her observations and thoughts. 

Well deserved recognition...
