I used to teach all ages - for ages - but it became too serious and rather sensible... I prefer walking my three pygmy goats on leads, feeding them with blackberry brambles and acorns. And making my cats sing. Don't you just love stamping in frozen puddles? The windy top of a high hill? The smell of a garden bonfire? Have you tried eating strawberries with white pepper? And sucking snapped off icicles? Do you love the moon on a deep black night? And rainbow bubbles? I do. Do you love listening to, reading or writing stories? Wonderful! So do I.
