If, while out walking, you find a beautiful feather on your path and feel inclined to do so, would you please send it to me. I need to make some wings for someone so that he might fly. Not piles of feathers, just one, or two. Please send beautiful feathers to me C/O Solva Woollen Mill, Middlemill, Solva, Nr Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, SA62 6XD. By return of post I will send a card with the shortest of short stories written on it, each one original.
And think, about the simple wonder that feathers are.
To see something of what happens next have a look at First Feathers.
