I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has taken the time to follow my blog and/or leave a comment since it was featured on WordPress Discover. I’ve received many kind words about the featured post, On Anonymous Blogging, and also about other pieces of my writing. The positive response has been overwhelming and I’m really humbled by it all! Thanks again everyone, I hope you enjoy reading my future posts, and I look forward to checking out your blogs too.
My first poetry collection, Nothing but the Rain, is ready to be released into the wild. I have handmade each one, and will be leaving them in random places – both locally and further afield – for strangers to stumble upon. I hope someone, somewhere, enjoys it!
If you’ve found a copy I’d love to hear from you – you can leave a comment below.
If you’d like me to post a copy to you (free of charge) please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address.
Is there anything more primeval than gathering round a bonfire? Fire is elemental, still seems magic. It brings us closer, to each other and to our shared histories. Staring into the flames connects us with our ancient past, our ancestors, for whom this wild flickering spirit was the difference between life and death. We stand together, warming. Watching the golden-orange sparks drift into the inky night sky, like so many souls ascending.
