  2. I have really enjoyed your fragments, there is such a haunting simplicity in your work. You never seem frightened to shave away anything unnecessary. Many thanks Ann

  3. Minimalist writing at its best. I'm loving your "stones".

  4. It does take a lot of work to write things this short!
    But the most important thing is the partnership between writer and reader - so I'm making you work too, I think. Thank you so much for reading, and commenting.
