I've been vegetarian since I

Posted on Sun, 21 Jan 2018

I've been vegetarian since I was a young child, nobody else in my family is and I was always singled out for people awkward. It always amazes me the abuse you get for not eating meat, it must be worse if you're vegan. I've never tried to enforce...

Ah I love this, brings back

Posted on Sat, 13 Jan 2018

Ah I love this, brings back the memories of being a cat owned fool so vividly. I still miss mine too much to entertain getting another. It's a quiet, calming (mostly) and unique kind of companionship which you've summed up beautifully here.

I love the way you've knitted

Posted on Tue, 09 Jan 2018

Posted on Sat, 09 Sep 2017

I enjoyed this. Those starlings though, it seems cruel doesn't it. As a human you just can't get away with gatoring, people always expect a smile and small talk. I really like your style of writing.

Posted on Sun, 20 Aug 2017

This was a really interesting read and refreshing. I spent some time living in Devon and I must say my heart broke a little when I left. When is something as unspeakable as the holocaust and other horrific war incidents truly dealt with? As long...

Unusual poem, it works really

Posted on Wed, 02 Aug 2017
