Bananas and daffodils, egg yolk and butter …

A jewel, a flower and a friend

Sharp and shiny …incorruptible … expensive jewel … Soft and tender, fragile … soothing … warm and smiling: transient beauty … exquisite flower …

Stephen, I don't manage to

Posted on Thu, 11 Dec 2014

Stephen, I don't manage to dip much into the prose section, and horror and surreal isn't really my scene – I didn't even like 'Alice in Wonderland' as a child! However I did find reading this intriguing for the well-structured brevity, and the...

Posted on Mon, 15 Sep 2014

Thanks, I appreciate your interest at analysis, Stephen. My background is Welsh and Welsh poetry which makes a lot of use of repetition of consonants or part words to form unbotrusive patterns to help the impact of verse. (In its technical...

It sounds like cycling makes

Posted on Sat, 19 Oct 2019

It sounds like cycling makes you notice things, as well as getting fresh air and relaxation, but the slightly greater speed seems to give quite a different experience from walking, as 'things' are passed more quickly and so more of them in the...

You always have a way with words, Jane. But I would long to bring some Spring into these lives not just 'enjoy' their described tense and fragile cold. It seems like where existentialism leads, but we weren't made for that and need that 'God-...

Walking with you through the

Posted on Mon, 14 Oct 2019

Walking with you through the skeleton is effectively done.

But because we do not need the death of a whale to survive, we can forget that others have probably in the past, especially at a time when they were in abundance in our oceans....

You bring the walk to life

Posted on Sun, 13 Oct 2019

You bring the walk to life for all the senses! And encourage to notice all the little things around, with interest and pleasure. On Saturday we were on the hills (also without rain!) and encountered a little group of cubs and their leaders, the...

Posted on Mon, 07 Oct 2019
