I see one man Jane!
We fray into the future, rarely wrought
Save in the tapestries of afterthought.

Jane, you always get interesting stuff to post.
Aim, then, to be aimless.
Seek neither publication, nor acclaim:
Submit without submitting.

Catherine, for some reason they tend to look sinister in photos (mine as well as others'). In real life, they're impressive in a rather good-natured, bonhomie sort of way. A bit like Moomin-trolls.

Lake, you know what - that's exactly what I think about the stuff you and the others post! :D
