    Thank you! You are very kind to say so. The third volume will appear some time later next year.

    In The Limelight

    Yes, I think that's the perfect way to describe it. As we heard in an earlier chapter, Eric's more than capable of seeing off unwanted phone calls. And it's not as if he has any social media presence.

    With a little more context, perhaps.
  4. Thanks, Gary. I'm pleased my poem made that conection with you.
  5. I don't remember having those keys in mind at all when I wrote this. But very true.
  6. or in too many other places around the world. Thanks for reading this.
  7. My geologist brother would love this; as did I. I have to say that selection of prompts would have me scratching my head. You not only fulfilled all the criteria; you made a complete story out of it, one entirely characteristic of you. This made me grin; I say exactly the same thing. I think us readers would like you to write a few more prompts...

    A Key for Everything?

    Keys are universal Keys are mine alone Keys are release Keys are restraint Keys are freedom’s joy Keys are safety’s bars Keys are routes into new worlds Keys are instruments of repression Keys are hope given new life Keys are old regrets buried Keys are submission, freely given Keys are equality, grudgingly allowed Keys are music to the ears Keys are silence imposed Keys can be weapons, used for good or ill

    Even if he does react to some of them with gruffness (pretend or otherwise) . One way of disguising his emotions.

    I love this. Thanks, Def. As commented on elsewhere, queer society is, or is perceived to be, even more youth orientated than socity at large. Older LGBTQ individuals have as much right as anyone else to be present at Pride and elsewhere. Quite apart from anything else, they are the reason queer youth have the freedoms and acceptance they enjoy.

    I don't imagine you'd be the only one, Def.

    People can be so nervous about public transport, can't they? It's usually women who put their fears into words; guys don't for the most part.
  13. Designing story / series banners is a splendid way of using time that would otherwise be spent writing.  :rolleyes:  :lol:  Latest effort here

      @northie Carlos’s ‘tease’ gene is alive and well. :P 

  14. Sorry, drought. I've renamed both parts of Soul Music this time. Last time,  honest.  :rolleyes:  :lol:

      Hey! They’re your stories. I just get confused easily due to my advanced age. I’m glad you’re still thinking about them.

    My garden again

    More photos from my tiny, containerised garden. Studies of flowers mostly, sometimes insects.
