From the Notebook


What are poets for in these destitute times?

Heidegger IMG_9945

Risk! Risk anything! Care no more for the opinions of others, for those voices. Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth.

Katherine Mansfield

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found its words.

Frost IMG_0017

I, the sculptor, am the landscape.

Barbara Hepworth


In life, in order to understand the world, you must die at least once.



There is God. There is no God.

Simone Weil

      thanks Linda. Still haven’t been to Alnwick garden or Susie’s – next year maybe. The Durham garden a favourite old stomping ground. Mine is lush and verdant with rain, but needs sun badly. As do we!xxx
