Short Stories and Vignettes


Ullswater, Lake District, England



This is a small but constantly growing collection of thoughts, stories and vignettes that Iíve created over the years.

Some I wrote merely to lift my spirits, or in a frenzy of procrastination, or because I wanted to record a dream or a moment in time.Most are just absurd.Whether they are worthy of reading is something I do not know, but I like them.So here they are, for all the world to see, proving that I am, indeed, a complete nut.All I can say is, youíve been warned.
