Hi insert,

Hi insert,

like many other writers and readers out there, I don't know where I'd be without abc tales. For me it's been an addiction from the moment I joined in 2010 and has always felt like one big family that comes and goes over time. I...

Posted on Wed, 08 Jul 2020

This is gorgeous Penny. I too am a night person, though I do not have the distractions of the day like you do. It's just me and my partner in our old age, but the night time inspires, as I can see it does for you. Being able to let go and just be...

Your story reminded me of my

Posted on Sun, 17 May 2020

Your story reminded me of my own dad who died of cancer, he too was a great book reader. The bit about shaving your dad, I've been there too, it's so strange to think we never really know a parent until we reach that age we remember them at. ...

Posted on Fri, 01 May 2020

I agree with Di, you've captured that feeling of taking the time to think and care about others around. It's a much more caring and polite world we're living in at the moment. Like you say strangers are stopping to smile. There doesn't seem to be...

Posted on Wed, 08 Apr 2020

I like how you write of nature looking on the positive side. If we allow ourselves to just be rather than thinking too much, then life what ever the situation isn't all that bad. An optimistic poem indeed.

Hope you are keeping well Rachel...

Hi Rachel, 

you know when I was young I had a best friend named Gina, we were almost like twins and could read each others minds. I really do hope your friend gets better soon.

I like how in this poem you keep the faith of optimism...
