Bram McKay

Bram McKay is a 78-year-old gardener and fisher. He has never been married and has only one close friend, the neighbour’s cook Rick Hardie. He is a man of routines: he wakes at exactly five o’clock every morning to drink a cup of coffee and have two slices of toast. At half-past five he walks down to the beach and fishes for the next hour. He spends the rest of the morning tending to local gardens, until having lunch at two o’clock and laying down for a two-hour nap at exactly half past. After waking he goes to the local pub with Rick and comes back to his little cottage for dinner at five.

Write about Bram. Perhaps something comes up that prevents him from sticking to his daily schedule? How would he react? What lies in his past? Who are the people he gardens for? There’s only one way to find out. Photo by Ian Kahn.
