The North Sea throws shapes.
Chris contemplates life eternal.
Winter sun beams down.

About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.

  1. Excellent mate, the whole thing works really well. That picture is spectacular and there can’t be many people who have been to the beach in the Winter, but those who have would all be nodding their heads and saying Aha! to your middle line in the haiku because it is so true.
    Ah!! I miss the North Sea. I’m from Newcastle and I used to live right on the coast in a place called Whitley Bay and now I live in Inverness, which is beautiful… amazingly beautiful but it hasn’t got the North Sea. We do have coastline and beaches but every view out to sea is littered with picturesque islands at various distances. That picture up above is how I want my sea view, with an infinite horizon that scares the crap out of me.

    Thanks for the read and the memories,

    Mark

  2. Fanks fella.
    It’s a little hidden beach called Reighton and in the winter there is literally a handful of folk on a three mile stretch.
    You may have heard of it.
    Your view sounds pretty amazing. I worked the rigs off Scotland a few years ago and Inverness was pretty damn nice.
    Although I see what you mean about the vastness dazzling the eyes into fearful awe.
    Fanks for dropping by and all the best to you and yours.
