I am a Brummie living in Northampton. I love to write but get distracted with other things. I love horror/fantasy and anything that provokes original thought. My literary heroes are Clive Barker, Edgar Allan Poe and HP Lovecraft.

I think that everyone should read George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-four .

I know nothing at all about Tarkovsky. (I thought he was a right back for Everton) Super poem that makes me wanna look Tarkovsky's work up.

Chains of daisies as an analogy of unity, strength yet peace. The world needs more of this thinking. Nicely done and enjoyed your poem. Paul :)

All caught up again. You have my full admiration for the length of the story so far and the consistently high standard you achieve with each episode. You are on course to have a fully fledged novel. Keep going!
