  7. Hello, Claire. I read your comment on Whispering Gums today and decided to visit your blog. I enjoyed your flash fiction, ‘The Muster’, which took me straight to the heart of the experience. I also enjoyed your review of Paul Durcan. I heard him read once in Canberra and it was an unforgettable experience.
