Posted on Tue, 04 Feb 2020

This is very fine, especially the first verse, it made my mouth water. Even pavement cracks hold possibilities, I love. It's a shame people don't spend much time outside when it's cold in February because there is so much happening.

Really lovely and I like that

Posted on Tue, 11 Feb 2020

Really lovely and I like that you've included the conflicted in- betweeness of February and how it can pull us in either direction in terms of climate. Snowdrops are a wonder. I love 'threaded through the green needle of a stem'

Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares

Posted on Tue, 11 Feb 2020

Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares is an example of everything which is wrong with the human race. I enjoyed this piece about the little conflicts that occur inside our heads and reasons behind them.  I can lose myself in the mug section in Homesense...

A fine tribute to these

Hi Rhiannon. Thanks for your comment. I agree with you, some people cannot accept help or are so far gone that they don't know how to ask for it and yet those connected with them would have done anything to help.

This captures well the inner battle of sleeplessness. The ticking mind and aching body and then the inexplicable release into sleep. The tired bee analogy is perfect.

Superstition is addictive yes

Posted on Tue, 10 Dec 2019

Superstition is addictive yes. Friday 13th puts some people on edge and makes them look for the dark side in everything. 'Ears to hear, supporting power will make good in time.' words makes me instantly feel more relaxed.

I can really relate to this

Posted on Sun, 13 Oct 2019

I can really relate to this and the pleasure you derive from walking in the forest. I think the Japanese refer to it as a 'forest bath'.  I wonder if there could ever be a return of some of the creatures we've lost now that we have too many deer...

Posted on Fri, 27 Sep 2019

Hi Rhiannon. This reminds me of the cosy nights in, indoor heat and nice things to eat and all the glowing shades outside. We're so lucky aren't we, to have warm, clean houses and such a choice of food. Every season has its grey days, you're ...
