Blueberry Muffin
Blueberry Muffin

BLUEBERRY MUFFIN A loud long scrape on the first violin opened the string quartet as written by a new composer called Teeming, spelt as in heavy rain, and nobody, according to the programme, seemed to know his or her Christian name. Alive or dead. Or what orientations the composer... Read more

Sunbeams and Starlight
Sunbeams and Starlight

SUNBEAMS AND STARLIGHT We were in a bit of a quandary, needing a title for our group. Someone suggested Sunbeams – as there were more than one of us and a plural word seemed appropriate. It was also a nod towards the bright young things in our group. Someone... Read more

It Was The Night Before
It Was The Night Before

Dear Eunice Just started this letter to you. But I am so tired, I'll write more tomorrow, and I'll keep it piecemeal with headings of when I wrote it. We old friends need to stick together. I can only seem to write in short bursts these days. It's getting more difficult to shuffle the days... Read more

The Tall Fall
The Tall Fall

Once upon a time, there was a woodchopper who lived and worked in the forest. He was the tallest woodchopper in the world, but he didn't know this because he chopped so fast and had not met any other woodchoppers. He knew a lot of trees, though, until, in the future, he didn't know them at... Read more

Short Description of a Person
Short Description of a Person

Nobody knew his real name and why everyone called him Not Again (spoken as one word) was a mystery. However, I decided to describe his physical appearance systematically to see if that gave some sort of clue. This may indeed entail describing how actually I go about describing him, not only as...

Back From The Dead (pubtalk)
Back From The Dead (pubtalk)

BACK FROM THE DEAD It was once so certain Don was going to die, judging by what the doctors told him, that when he actually didn't die, he felt as if he had come back from the dead. "What was it like then, Don?" asked his drinking pal Richard. "What was what like,... Read more

Oil Can
Oil Can

(results of my speed-writing exercise last night at the Clacton writer's group) Arthur’s table had an oil can sitting upon it like a still life whose shadow on the wall looked rather like a recherché teapot that Arthur imagined to be bone china or soft tissue japan or tracing-paper... Read more

A Lift To Hell
A Lift To Hell

Hitchhiking, eh? Well, I gave it up years ago, before the world gave up hitchhikers and expected them to get real jobs and real cars, not that some of you will ever give this up, whatever the dangers. For me, it was a sore thumb, making me settle down, not wanting to stick out, not wanting... Read more

A Dog Named Boo
A Dog Named Boo

I first met Boo when he was a puppy. I had not been a particular lover of dogs, nor someone who likes to keep pets of any sort. But Boo won my heart. It was easy to scare him, and that is probably how he got his name, by means of my saying Boo to him so as to see his little eyes jump. Not that... Read more

Open Wound
Open Wound

OPEN WOUND "Go, sally forth," the voice said. I turned to see who had spoken, and there was nobody there, not even my own shadow, because - I laughed - the sun was casting my shadow in front of me, not behind. I decided to sit for a while in the wild flower meadow that... Read more

Wet Sand Mk. II
Wet Sand Mk. II

Give us the wet sand look, said the woman. I was measuring up as a bespoke coverer for the good or the rich. Carpet-layer and wall-hanger. That’s me. Wet sand look? Yes, she replied. She explained what she wanted. A few throw-rugs for the hall where the bagpipers for the... Read more

That's So Rude!
That's So Rude!

When I came downstairs in the middle of the night or – as it turned out – very early in the morning, I discovered Susan in the living-room, squatting on the couch in her nightie, intently watching News 24 on the TV. I had not previously noticed her going down the stairs from her room at such... Read more

A bellyful of sadness...
A bellyful of sadness...

“A bellyful of sadness, a stoup of hope, if stories have threads, real lives don’t. Eyes have eyes, spooks have spines, souls are switched, with made-up minds. Worlds within worlds, heaven in flight – only connect, only go bump in the night.”

Wet Sand
Wet Sand

Give us the wet sand look, said the woman. I was measuring up as a bespoke coverer for the good or the rich. Carpet-layer and wall-hanger. That's me. Wet sand look? Yes, she replied. In time for Burns' Nite, she added. I didn't know then, of course, how she spelt night, as this... Read more

Holland Haven
Holland Haven

Whole and haven. Hole and Haven. Haven is only one letter short of Heaven. A place named Holland? Perhaps the Netherlands, the Heathen Lands, the Heaven Lands, the Heaving Lands after some holocaust of tides and coastal warming. Whole with a w is quite alien to the concept of hole without a...

Aestivation
Aestivation

THE END OF THE CHASE I first met him as part of a group of people who didn’t know me at all but who knew friends whom I’d known for some years, but the first thing he ever said to me, quite out of the blue, at a pudding party run by the original friends, was rather off-putting to say... Read more

Hooray-Henries At Play
Hooray-Henries At Play

Catheater Street seemed dark even in the long summer evenings, so when winter arrived it needed more than just the council lighting to disperse the premature onset of night. No stars or moon could ever be seen from Catheater Street. I loved it, though. Such a place suited my thoughts and... Read more

Misdiagnosis
Misdiagnosis

It's terrifying to receive a misdiagnosis, especially if it is assumed to be a correct diagnosis when you are first terrified by it. When it later turns out to be a misdiagnosis, your terror, in hindsight, becomes quite misplaced. But the terror never really goes away. Indeed, the terror... Read more

A Boy Balloon
A Boy Balloon

The shop was a relatively ordinary one, with cracked paint on its frames revealing it was not a terribly successful business but with wide and healthy glass in its show-window, an old-fashioned bell to indicate its door opening or shutting, with all manner of bric-a-brac being sold, some...
