Image generated by Midjourney Sarah asked me the other day, “do you actually find you enjoy writing?” Writing is always something I feel I ought to be doing.

Nevertheless, I read a lot, and reading gives you a taste for writing that often wants satisfying with doing a bit yourself.

In the recent Picard show, Raffi complains about being poor but lives in an appealing future rustic home in a scenic park.
