On the brink of a New Moon, I’m pointing you in the direction of some new writing that has recently become available online. There are some unpublished poems from my botanical travels on the Poetry International site, with an introduction by Katy Evans-Bush.
Since the beginning of this year, I have been visiting Cheeseburn Grange, just outside Stamfordham, and writing about the gardens and artworks there. Much work is going on behind the scenes so that next year it will be open to the public. It’s a wonderful place and an exciting venture.
Regular visitors to this blog will have noticed that I’m posting less and less these days. The Botanical project officially came to an end in May, after my marvellous visit to Pisa. I’m currently concentrating on the various strands of writing arising from my research, poetry and prose, and so will only be posting sporadic thoughts and news as I go along. The plan is that I will emerge again in the New Year…
The past is never dead. It’s not even past.
