    We don't hear/read reports of families being slaughtered because of their ancestry nowadays.
    If i post a comment on a "WIP", LOOK! I'm a reader that's all, and i can only tell how i feel, as a READER, giving/offering feedback. Hoping to learn and grow here. So please, tell me where i'm going wrong.

    Me? I'm just a fly on the wall.

    Look! I'm trying, okay?

    One can but dream, if only i had dared.

    I think, maybe it could be an interesting exercise in writing. Who knows? With the help of WF I might even learn how to write. I just love the way [ the mindset of the man ] Orwell saw, interpreted, and then put his experiences into to words but his travels weren't without risk. Getting up close and personal with real people? In this day age? Not a good idea I think. To trawl the thoughts feelings views and experiences of the general public [ lol! I bet I could walk the whole way around Britain without speaking to a soul ] could be a wonderful experience though.

    Are you not old enough for a bus pass? Great way of getting into a conversation, waiting at a rural bus stop.

    Me? I've still got a couple of years to go.
    Y'know?
    On Saturday lunchtime as I waited for my bus home from shopping, a woman spoke to me and I clammed up. I still can't make that leap. I just can't. And it rankles, it really does.

    But, reading the book I have now brings home just how difficult such an enterprise would be. I don't like to go anywhere without knowing the whereabouts of public toilets for starters.
    Would be nice to bus-hop and just call in at b&b's as and when I felt like it but life isn't like that is it. And just imagine, doing it on a free bus pass. Pretty cool huh!

    I swear you've seen more action at bus stops in the last six months than I managed in ten years of studied moral dilapidation down the Big Smoke.




    Beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror which we are barely able to endure, and are awed,
    because it serenely disdains to annihilate us.
