A Singular Domain is a natural refuge for singular inhabitants; a world where animals & plants have something to say full of sound advice and ironic remarks.

Browsing this domain, and listening to their inhabitants talking, it’s learning what time has taught them; it’s also discovering they can be very pleasant and very sensible companions.

Each character is defined by a quote, and has his or her iconic photo (see the page “Characters and Quotes”)

Weeks after weeks in the “Chronicles”, dramas and romances are forged, similarities with the human world are established, stories are told. It’s where Stick, Heron, Woman-tree and the others reveal themselves.

In “World Noises”, Goose and Hawk comment human affairs, and have a laugh at them.

In “The Voices of Reason”, the Turtles and Dead Leaves go back to what Goose and Hawk said and offer rational explanations.

This Singular Domain exists everywhere and is of any time, but it is also located in a town of Massachusetts and in the 21st century with its particular economic requirements.

Like any natural place, it can use your support ! (see suggestions at the bottom of the page)

For an easy Navigation…

The dialogues can be read independently but they also slowly tell the story of the Domain and the story of the human world outside. It means that, depending on your tastes, you can:

  • read the topics that interest you by looking at the dialogues’ titles.
  • read everything in chronological order by starting with the 1st dialogue on the 1st page (then clicking on the “next dialogue” icon that will show on the page) to have a sense of how things evolve.
  • read the latest dialogues by looking at “recent posts”
  • use the ” Tags”  to find dialogues related to a character or theme you like.
  • use the “Categories” to find dialogues related to the life of the Domain or to the human life.

These multiple entries allow you to create your own itinerary, like if you were on the Domain trails.

Have a good trip, and enjoy your reading!
