Why does the picture of a tiger with a shooting star above your mantlepiece
leave me feeling awestruck but freezing and wet?
When we were seven and eight, jumping from houseboat to houseboat untill the sleep within one vessel shoutingly ended, used to be a favourite pastime of my sister and I, untill the way a miaow from the bay seemingly made a hiccup in the stars' twinkling, caused me to fall into the life containing what I would come, during my second recovery, to name the telescope tiger moment , but also between boats and into hypothermia inducing water.

    Excellent imagery and superbly atmospheric, but more to the point is why haven't I been following you? Mistake rectified, sorry Jamie!

    No apology necessary mate :-)Think I complicated things by deleting my old account and starting a new one a while back. So glad we're reconnected. :-)
