Fri, 12 April 2013 guest post for Joseph D’Lacey

I am regularly asked to write articles for friends or blog posts for web sites I’ve worked with before, and sometimes I just can’t fit it into my schedule. Not surprisingly, I am often asked to discuss issues about women or feminism, but despite what people may think, I don’t want to bang on that [...]

Tue, 09 August 2011 first shrooms

One of the events I look forward to in August is the return of the mushroom.

I snapped this yesterday, because today there was heavy rain during my walk and photography would [...]

Sat, 25 September 2010 beautiful fungus

Today I noticed a small track in the woods I’d never seen before.

Many of them are little more than a memory of a passageway through the trees, and often fade away [...]
