Flash back to the London Screenwriters’ Festival, 2016. During the festival’s closing presentation, I sat next to someone who said he was part of the Talent Campus.

ONP member Robin Hayes recently shared that she had every intention of practicing her perspective photography one morning but was instead hijacked by a family of friendly otters.

Dear Kitty. Some blog

After 20 April 2019, we were still on Tilos island in Greece. The photo shows the path to Skafi beach on the north coast. We walked there; not all the way to the coast, as there was much too see underway. Again, Sardinian warblers singing. And a nightingale. Again, many painted lady butterflies; on their […]
