Where did all our water come from?

… Their guess for this cooling sphere so hot doesn’t have a solution to how we have got these oceans so vast of this simplest solvent, their only suggestion that somehow it came by meteor or comet again and again impacts in their thousands battering the sphere … no ‘bang’ came from nowhere to make us appear …

Something better …

Posted on Fri, 01 May 2020

My reaction was 'Poor Penelope'. A bit like realising the unhappiness and friendlessness of most bullies. I remember realising from what my primary school son was saying that the children were egging this bully in their midst on, and I knew...

Posted on Tue, 31 Mar 2020

It's so easy to get in a whirl of busyness that you don't notice the beauties around, nor take time for the lonely who can't be so busy, or are trying to help others. I had always wondered why the beech hedges kept their dead leaves in winter too...

I haven't been out to look

Posted on Sun, 22 Mar 2020

I haven't been out to look this year, but at others, found so many of the 'Mother's Day cards' in the shops seemed to be artificial, and not realisitic for many of the ups and downs of family life.

Posted on Sun, 26 Jan 2020

I remember in Snowdonia my youngest son (who had Asperghers) running on some rocks with glee and his slightly older brother...

Posted on Sun, 03 Nov 2019

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....

Posted on Tue, 30 Apr 2019

I like the title! There are always those unasked questions! And simple tasks and smells bring back memories and persons so keenly. In Welsh we would say that my grandmoher used 'the notion of the eye not the hand' I think, in measuring her flour...
