Writing with Water is the one and only home of author Thomas Halvë. It’s warmer than a park bench.

The blog was begun in mid-April 2012. Thomas will try to publish at least one piece of writing a week on this blog with the aim of then getting them published elsewhere.It’s then just a short hop to a Booker Prize.






Thomas wrote all the words and took all the pictures that appear on this site. If you want to use any of them then just ask.

      • Wow, Thomas, thank you for telling me about the old men in China, what a great way to practice an art, it is as you say a beautiful thing – says something about the transient nature of our work perhaps …
