Singing for Rustyfish

Lily's mum used to go to school with a  boy who had rust coloured hair and smelly socks. His name was Russ Fisher. Everyone just called him Rustyfish.

These days, he's known as Prime Minister Russell Fisher and he's coming to Lily's school!

Look out for my latest story  'Singing for Rustyfish' in the April issue of Countdown (The School Magazine).

Oh that's right

Every now and then I like to stop and get my bearings- where am I again?

It works best when there is a full moon. I look at it and remember- oh that's right, I'm on a small green planet in the middle of the universe, most of which we know nothing about.

I'm a speck on a spinning speck among millions of others in the middle of a mystery.

Perspective. Sometimes it helps.
