So, the valley of tears it is this week. Mum gone a month now and it seems harder than ever. I have a poetry event on Saturday too...interesting to see if I can make it through my bit without wailing. The event is at Barry Mill near Carnoustie, starts at 6pm and features various local poets and musicians. It should be fun...but I probably won't read this morning's poem.

p.s. Today's photo is from some time back in the mid 1990s. Taken somewhere near Whitby, North Yorkshire. Oh and this is NOT my Poetry Bus poem for this week, Bus Trippers - that is on the previous post.
Originally from the north of England, I live in Angus, Scotland where I walk a lot, think a lot, listen to lots of music, sometimes write poems, sometimes read poems out to other people, sometimes write songs, read all kinds of odd things, watch a bit...oh and I look after my family too.
I sometimes organise poetry and music events - details are usually here (though nothing coming up in the near future). This year I went travelling with my family - photos and notes are here. Now we're back I have moved to a new regular blog - it is here.

You can buy my book (published 2008) from my website if you fancy it (go to 'book' page) or from www.amazon.co.uk if you prefer the comfort of the multinational corporation. My book is printed on recycled paper and card. I have 12 different poetry postcards available too.
