The Heart Of Thetis

The Daughter Of Inachis

By Chris Bradbury  (booksie.com)

Out walking yesterday I saw so many butterflies dead at the roadside that I felt the occasional guilt of all car drivers (probably not), that we disrupt the world for our own sake without a second thought. It then took me to the death of loved ones on the roads and the effect of seeing bodies...
