Reading this is akin to a butterfly kiss. I love how the length echoes the length of a butterflies visit and 'soft as forgetting' is genius. They are magical little creatures.

'the pumpkin with bad hair',

Posted on Sat, 23 Apr 2022

'the pumpkin with bad hair', that's a common look since Donald Trump made fake tan mainstream. I also really enjoyed the pub scene, a thing of the past now. And the enduring school bully, acting like a respectable member of the community, shifty...

So much freedom demonstrated

Posted on Sun, 24 Apr 2022

So much freedom demonstrated here in your words Jenny. There is the part of us that gets old, tired and limited and then this side where anything is possible. 'Hitching a ride on ever changing winds', as long as we can do that, there's a reason...

Posted on Wed, 20 Apr 2022

This is brilliant and it made me laugh a lot. Uggly Puggly and his weird mate/lover. I love UP's quirks and the way he is capable of anything, including having too much electricity.

Posted on Thu, 24 Mar 2022

This is beautiful Di. The bright yellow against a blue sky is a wonderful tribute. The way you've described the scent of gorse brought back memories for me, of being in Wales near a beach when my children were small and we couldn't get over how...

Posted on Fri, 15 Apr 2022

That's pretty much it, in a nutshell. Very scary that so few people have so much power and so much wealth, following the same pattern as everything else, big businesses taking over small ones, countries seeking to overpower smaller ones. What's...

You've summed up just how much everything has changed over the past week Jenny. The air feels different and spring seems to have burst out of its seems all of a sudden. I love 'not being a pigeon expert', made me smile. The birds bring so much a...

Posted on Sat, 09 Apr 2022

She still gets excited about smelling them - that's so sweet. It's hard to control your emotions, knowing what's ahead but by feeling sad about it you're depriving yourself some of the joy of still having them next to you. I know it's hard to be...

Posted on Thu, 07 Apr 2022

Fulfilling to read, such a treat Di. I love 'bird song chips clear air', because they do, also love 'smelting life from light'. You've crammed so much quality in that I think I'll need to go back and re-read.
