We'll be away for a couple of weeks – proper abroad and everything – and we might manage some 'photos from the holiday road' posts but I don't think I'll be writing anything new on here till I get back. Until then here are a few links to selected posts from the first half of this year. It's called recycling...
There's a highflying post from the 1st January this year – here.
We had a week of of short poems in February – starting here.
Remember my Larkin poem at the end of a February post about England and being English? It's here.
There's some writing about poet Adrian Mitchell from March – here.
And a poem about senses in March – here.
The 'Alain de Botton book about work' post was fairly lively in April – it's here.
There's a review of John Baker's very good novel 'Winged with Death' from April – here.
The whole 'Revolutionary Road' (the book!) post from June is here. Worth it for some of the comments alone.
And if you missed it recently – the journalist Christina Patterson was interviewed in June (here) and my qarrtsiluni poetic debut is here.
That's it for now. Wish you were here and all that (but where will I be...maybe you'll have to try and guess from the photos that fly in...).
