A bunch of tales I wanted to share with you

A tale I read

Sparrows And Mortar by Rob Auton

A tale I heard

Former Art Attack host Neil Buchanan on what his mission was with the show:

"Every kid thinks they’re Picasso until they’re about six or seven. We all draw crap but we think it’s brilliant – and that’s the key. Unfortunately our parents, teachers and siblings say: ‘That’s not how you do it’. Art Attack was undoing all that damage."

A tale I saw

The Ground by Caroline Bird

A tale I wrote

Where is the end of the world? 
Is it a place or a feeling?
I think I saw it once
in Europe's largest chicken shop
holding a small portion of chips, 
smothered in garlic sauce,
with fingernails as bright
as every lightbulb
I've ever switched on.

A tail I like
