What a year this has been. Twelve months ago I came back to poetry after 20 years. I finally found a true creative vehicle for a voice that I felt had no real point of issue. Now I understand the flood, the fever of work so many other writers/composers have described. I am very grateful and passionately forge on. Thank you everyone for sharing in this with me, reading my poems and sending small but powerful wafts of encouragement and support. No man – especially me – is an island. Cheers.
