The Poetry Bus has been one heck of a journey so far. Set in motion by this man back in September of last year the online Bus shows no sign of slowing down and every week a whole bunch of us write a poem to the same theme or directions (different folk sometimes but there's the spine of a team always). There has been a lot of fun and learning and stories along the way but I think the poem Niamh Bagnell came up with this week (to the prompt 'write about blog word verifications') is one of my favourites so far. Read it here (and if anyone can make her a video for it, well that might just be marvellous...).
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.
