What I love

Posted on Thu, 30 Jan 2020

I was carried away on a wave of wistful melancholy as the present day recalled the past family holidays to a house that like life he could not yet say goodbye to. The descriptions were entirely realistic, almost too realistic, because the...

A sad, yet very real, slice of life which revolved around a folk music evening in The Wheatsheaf, an Essex pub. The descriptions and narrative were excellent and perfectly conjured the atmosphere, emotions, and setting. The characters...

Having passed so much time reading about Saltburn and being geeky by nature, one arm twisted the other, and I was forced to look up the town on WhoGoes Maps. Much to my delight, I discovered it has a lovely pier (Oh we do like to be...

Interesting dreams

Posted on Mon, 16 Mar 2020

I suspect a lot of people have had similar dreams, a variation on the same theme, I have. An interesting question is why? Why would we dream the same dream?

I think you cast the net wide

Posted on Tue, 18 Feb 2020

Jacques Rivette

Posted on Sun, 16 Feb 2020

I didn't recognise the name, but I loved Celine and Julie Go Boating. But back to the story, super, enjoyed the last four parts, with the exception of the rather gory slaughtering of seals with nailed clubs. I believe they still do that on one of...
