Amazingly I know Stourbridge, and used to live and work in Hagley for about seven years: small world
Isn’t it just! They usual response is ‘Where?’. Still, it’s not where you are, but what you do.

Hi Chris. Just to let you know I’ve nominated you for another Sunshine Award! Rachael
Thanks, Rachael, that’s very kind of you. To be honest I’m happy just to know that there are a few people out there who like what I write!
Take care, Chris.
Thanks for following my blog. I also appreciate all the likes and comments. I am looking forward to reading more of your stuff, its a very nice blog you have here
Thank you too – I’m pleased that you like my writing. I’m enjoying visiting your site too – you have some great writing on it.
Hello Chris you asked me what medium I am using for my art. Some of these are digital creations, others are shots that I’ve taken with my camera and then digitally altered or enhanced. Once they are done they are printed on either canvas, acrylic, metal or as standard print depending on what the buyer wants. I am currently using a myriad of digital software to get the effects that I create. Have a great day my friend and thank you for your comment.

Have a lovely peaceful holiday. Good to know you. 🙂
You too. It has been a pleasure to meet you. Take care, Chris.
Thank you for the likes! Your poetry is wonderful, I’m going to have to read some more. I have a cousin who just left Wolverhampton for Wales about a year ago. First time I’ve seen that name come up in awhile. 🙂
‘It’s a small world after all…!’ Thank you for you kind comment and your visit. I stumbled across your blog via the wonderful Vic Briggs, and am enjoying your posts. I look forward to reading more.
I hear you’re not much of a fan of these, but I just wanted to let you know that I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Award 🙂 http://acmelodyblog.wordpress.com/2014/01/21/paying-it-forward/
Thank you. I’ve nothing against awards per se, but, personally, I like writing for creativity’s sake, and if somebody else likes what I write then so much the better! I believe that if only one other person likes what we create then it has been a worthwhile process, which is why I really appreciate any feedback that I receive. Thanks for your consideration of my blog, congratulations and good luck with your writing – I look forward to reading more. I’m also going to check out some of your other recommendations!
You’re welcome, and you’re absolutely right, so no worries. I just thought I should give it go at least once and despite the rules. I’m a rebel like that. 🙂 I hope you enjoy the other blogs, they’re all great.

Many thanks for your visit, and I’m pleased that you are enjoying my site. It is difficult to keep up with so many interesting sites, so I appreciate your time. You eclipse my career by half a dozen years, by the way!
Thanks for visiting my blog and for liking some of my posts!
PS Some very nice writing in both prose and poetry. Have you published in book form?
Thank you for sayinh so. Glad you like it. In answer to your question, the answer is no, although it’s always something I would consider. Cheers.
Thank you for visiting my blog and liking some of my posts. Blessings, Natalie 🙂
Just down the road from me – I have family in Stourbridge! A thoughtful and enjoyable blog.
It is, as they say, a small world! I’m pleased that you are enjoying my blog, and would return my compliments to you.
Hi Chris – Couldn’t resist commenting having read your background. I was born in Birmingham but was brought up in East Anglia (Peterborough)!!!! Have a great day! 🙂
Trading places! I bet you miss the hills though!
I loved cycling so the fens were friendly (except when the winds were off the North Sea!).

I am happy to find and read your work here on WordPress. You are a poet of unusual power and clarity. Thank you so much for posting.
You are far too kind. I’m merely grateful for your reading and comments.
Your poems are all marvelous, Chris. They keep me trapped.
Thank you, that means alot to me. I am very grateful for the time that you are spending reading my words.
You are kindly welcome, Chris. It is a pleasure to read your work.
House of Heart said:
Today I took time to reread many of your poems Chris. Such raw and powerful poetry, beautifully heartbreaking, deep and thoughtful. You are truly gifted Chris.
I am both humbled and touched by this – both your generous words and the fact that you have revisited some of my writing. I think that we all would like to hope that we are re-read, but would never expect it; after all, there is so much worth reading, and it often takes time to locate, which is why I appreciate you taking some of your precious time to not only read my work, but also leave your thoughts.
You have my heart-felt thanks.
House of Heart said:
It’s not often one is able to return to a specific poetry with so many fine poets out there, your’s does stand out above the crowd. Have a wonderful day.
Thank you, and I’m delighted that you have revisited my writing. Have a great weekend!
House of Heart said:
My pleasure, a great weekend to you as well.

Dear Mr. Chris,
Thank you very much for liking my story, “The Box’. I went through your blog and read two stories, ‘The Candle Game’ and ‘Postcards’. I am floored by the vivid imagery in your writing. Your words created the exact picture in front of my eyes while I struggle with the description of my narrative.
I wanted you to know that I loved what I read on your blog and will come for more.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read these stories – I am delighted that you enjoyed them.
I think that you are being a little hard on yourself. Your story reads well, almost like an old moralistic fairy tale or parable. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Keep writing.

Thank you very much Sir for the kind words.
