Thank you Insert. I find the weekly IP a good inspiration. We are fascinated and frightened by the idea that aliens might invade and destroy Earth but are we just talking about ourselves?

I really enjoyed reading this

Posted on Wed, 26 Sep 2018

I really enjoyed reading this, it brought to life a typical suprmarket shift complete with misery and the type of characters which seem to crop up in most workplaces. It recall my own stint in 'provisions', I got a verbal warning for failing to...

Posted on Mon, 09 May 2022

Loved a den as a child and would have one now if I had a larger patch of garden. There are few things more restorative than immersing yourself in the wild among branches entwining, listening to the distant buzzing. I really love the way you've...

'gingered bracken' - I love

Posted on Thu, 21 Apr 2022

'gingered bracken' - I love this description and the photographs are beautiful. The way you've included a glider, it adds another dimension and forces you to imagine the view from above as well as at ground level. The whole thing is very...

Posted on Mon, 28 Mar 2022

I can imagine how all those soft colours blend together beneath the spring sunshine. It's lovely to see the sheep and lambs in Wales but I can't help wondering if they will become a rarer sight with changing consumer habits and increasing...

Posted on Mon, 14 Mar 2022

The earth is just about perfect except for the bits where human behaviour, often driven by big business have reduced it to a polluted wasteland. I agree that we all have a hole, maybe it is God-shaped, I don't know but there is great contentment...

Posted on Tue, 22 Feb 2022

You've painted quite a cold picture of our modern towns here, the combination of the weather, the ever increasing number of empty shops, the enduring problem with homelessness and the facelessness of facemasks. I do worry about the future with...

Posted on Wed, 24 Feb 2021

A magical poem which really captures the spirit of the night time. I enjoyed, neon street lamps, urban penumbra. For people who still have energy after the demands of the day, the night represents another world where the planets seem closer.

Posted on Fri, 12 Feb 2021
