Musings and reading from an unpublished story I wrote in 2010 aimed at children on the cusp of adolescence. It is set a few generations after we make it through multiple systemic global collapses. Two young teens live in a changed Ireland which is now a land of many isles with pockets of regenerated wild woods, managed productive food forests and community allotments. One of these children is envisioned as a great grandchild of Judith Hoad who features in the first interview on this podcast. The other an imagined descendant of my own. I explore the themes, inspirations and reactions 10 years on from first writing it.
