I like the way you 'throw in'

Posted on Wed, 07 Oct 2015

I like the way you 'throw in' lines like about the difficulties of finding the way out in IKEA (living so far from one, we have found them quite overwhelming on our occasional visits!) and not having time to think about the emptiness that will...

So honest, so sad, so simply

Posted on Sat, 03 Oct 2015

So honest, so sad, so simply and clearly written. There does seem some sort of deep caring love there, and a trusting love to some extent, but that can't (at present) meet, and a looking for excitement that won't satisfy. Rhiannon

Posted on Sat, 26 Sep 2015

It does seem to have the feel of the girl who's been so sick and a bit nightmarey with fever, and feeling the oddness of convalescence and everything feeling distorted, and also the feel of a little girl wanting to be a bit removed from...
