You All Along

From The Story of Eve The shadows stood tall and long in the shining of the moon. The forest waited with trees that could have been beasts and Ruth sucked in her breath. She tried to calm herself. She had been running for more than two hours and she had still not lost them. ‘Them’... Continue Reading →

All Structure is Retrofitted…

This is my first day of the rest of my life.  I thought I may as well have it before it’s too late. I can remember fifteen years ago and being in the preliminary stages of realisation of the years that I was collecting. My footballing skills had most definitely waned and I started to...

Some words From Way Back…

I wanted to be a writer. I wanted the freedom of thought that would allow me to create my own kingdoms and to find my own treasures. I wanted another life from the one that I have now. Teaching is a job, not a life. So, I set about the task of teaching myself how... Continue Reading →

Stands of trees, forests and mountains came and went as we continued our journey and I remembered watching, from a secure height, the mayhem... Continue Reading →

Bloody Mary and the Shower Room…

The Hawk…
