‘Branch Lines’ by Zoolon This is all true. For reasons I won’t bore you with, at some stage most days I find myself visiting the local Post Office.

A Magpie’s Loss I never got to see the event, I just got told about it. There’s a single storey extension at the back of the house. It has a flat roof. On the flat roof there’s a bird bath kept full of water so that any number of bird species can drop by, have … Continue reading ‘SHADOWS & MAGPIES’
