I like stories. I like stories about fathers and about children. I like surprise twists and unusual endings. I like good writing. I lean to the emotional. Postings by some of the same people regularly show up, but the mix does change.
I’ve also added a new section – paintings and photographs. There’s some stunning stuff. (And if you’d like to follow art and the arts in general online on a regular basis, there’s no better source than Maureen Doallas at Writing Without Paper.) (Yes, that's a ringing endorsement.)
