S T Vasectomy Clinic - 19

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...

A beautiful little tree holds

Posted on Sat, 16 Jul 2022

A beautiful little tree holds so much promise for the future as long as we respect it. I often think of what those great old oak trees have witnessed in their lifetimes. We could really do with some rumbles of thunder and a good soaking but the...

This is like a short holiday

Posted on Thu, 30 Jun 2022

This is like a short holiday and just what I needed to read today. I'm glad you didn't cut it short. I could feel the heat from the sandstone and imagine the long grasses clinging. 'No time for regrets'. This is one to revisit.

'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

The earth is just about

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...
