Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. I hope that you'll return often and always find something of interest about my world and what inspires me to pick up a pen. (This is a figure of speech, unfortunately. My handwriting is terrible!) Here's what I've been up to recently...
This monthly event is held at the Golden Ball in York and I couldn’t have chosen a worse evening to make my debut. The weather was unutterably foul and only half the usual number of people had turned out to take part.
However, despite the pouring rain and high winds, around 20 people were there to hear guest poet Henry Raby, Steve Nash, Andy Humphrey, Helen Sant, John Gilham and others perform. I was asked to read too and, not having brought anything along, had to resort to conjuring up my website on a mobile phone. I don’t think The Hippy’s Lament was quite the sort of thing the group is used to, but I got a polite round of applause at the end anyway!
