Close to my home stands an ancient portal Dolmen, it is 7000 years old and boasts the heaviest capstone in Europe.

In another life I spent many pleasurable hours drawing and sketching. I thought I had lost all of these pictures but I recently found them in my parent’s attic. I have decided to share them on my blog as writing prompts. I would be delighted to think a drawing of mine might inspire a story or poem.
I will be my sharing my drawings over the next few months.
Thanks and all the best.
