Sparkle in the dying light of stars.
You too will join them as effervescent dust

Thu, 10 February 2011 web morning

This morning saw a beautiful combination of sunlight hitting wet trees and shrubs that were coated with a patina of frost. A mist curled up from the iced grass toward blue skies.
Everywhere there were spider webs, jewelled with beads of water. One long chain formed a barrier across the path – I spotted it at [...]

Thu, 15 April 2010 sun in the sky you know how I feel

I’ve been getting a constant stream of birthday greetings from people via Facebook and Twitter today, and it’s lovely. Thank you all! People might grumble about social media, but it has its good uses too.

Wed, 29 April 2009 catching up

The past three weeks have been hectic, and my weekly Thursday Twitterfic lapsed during this period, but as it happens a bunch of my twitter stories hit the web so here are links to them:
There are two stories, here and here, on Thaumatrope, and a pico story on Outshine.
During Easter my poem “Exchange” went live [...]
