A separated man on a party with his children, a woman on walking her dogs in a deserted wood, dinner on the beach in Thailand, an art exhibition, the satisfaction from a job well done…

Listen for yourself:


It’s the first of a new series on the John Murray Show called Park Bench.

We’re grand… just… something in our eye.
