Brilliant rhythm. Poor girl,

Posted on Fri, 04 Feb 2022

Brilliant rhythm. Poor girl, why are some people's lives so wretched? 'A twenty two year old has been' is stirring. I enjoyed the short poignant lines and the rhyming. It's like a series of strikes and mirrors that poor young lady's childhood.

What a story and in it what

Posted on Sun, 30 Jan 2022

What a story and in it what lovely names and words. 'Legends expressed - myths reaching across time'. There is a beauty in the underworld, just as there is horror in nature. I love it when plants are linked to stories (& poems!). Some of...

Blimey, I don't know whether to feel scared or embrace the weirdness and re-evaluate my working arrangements.

What a rich landscape to

Posted on Tue, 25 Jan 2022

What a rich landscape to explore. I got the sense of cold and damp combined with so much winter life and texture. The Black mountains above and the fallen tree 'bark - deep gingery-brown'. Your detailed descriptions create such a realistic image ...

Posted on Sun, 16 Jan 2022

I really enjoyed this little bit of escapism and Mr Lee's journey back through the years accompanied by the hustle and bustle of life around the cafe. I love it when older people make the effort to dress smartly each day. And now I want to read...

Hi Insert, thanks for the cherries and your comment. I was really excited about this week's IP but when I went back through my phone, this was the third photo back and I so disappointed because I thought, what on earth is that? I didn't know so I...

Posted on Tue, 18 Jan 2022

A wonderful tribute to a wonderful place Jenni. I enjoyed shivering limbs and the idea of ghosts (I'm sure there are many) a haven for wildlife. You've captured the spirit of the broadleaved forest in winter and the generosity of our ancient...

Context - I love it but it

Posted on Sat, 15 Jan 2022

Context - I love it but it just makes it all the more absurd. I too, don't earn much above the minimum wage, worked through almost all of the pandemic, dealing with the public, who were mostly angry and didn't social distance. I keep seeing...

'Until you no longer remember

Posted on Sat, 08 Jan 2022

'Until you no longer remember me in your prayers', A long extinguished flame can suddenly re-ignite without warning but an unkissed state is one of both sadness and peace. I love the flow and movement. When something is so far out of reach you...

That is a lovely story. I bet he's sharp, his face is beautiful, he looks slightly whippety in the face. One of my whippets is almost 14 years, we've had him since he was 7 weeks old. I loved all the details around the beginnings of Skye's life...
