I was interested to read your last couple of lines that seem to indicate how easily one can hide away inside oneself to loss for others and oneself.

When researching family history often there is a just a skeleton list of names and places...

You really made me realise why all my family have loved cycling. I missed the boat somewhere when growing up and never got there until on a tandem briefly. The pleasure and refreshment of fresh air at a slight speed really comes across here –...

I had read this and wanted to wait and understand more clearly when there were comments. But what I found powerful were the phrases 'A stinging lock In time tattered, her voice speaks frayed words', but especially that last phrase....

Very credible situation with his Dad. Interesting how it comes out here the real concern his mother does have for him, and his awareness of that, though their communication together is difficult.  In some ways his special phobias/worries seem to...

Posted on Fri, 12 Feb 2016

This reminded me of when my son was being taught about the 'rules of composition' for music, and I worried he would lose what seemed to be spontaneous and individual intuition for what would make interesting sound. He assured me it wouldn't, but...
