This photo was taken from Abbey Craig, the place from where Wallace’s army looked down at the English army crossing Stirling Bridge. I was looking south towards our village rather than west.

It’s a while since I last posted, and I’m only just getting the hang of this wordpress lark. I’ve begun adding links to other blogs, and I’ll be adding more as I go.

I’ve been out and about lately, looking after family – there’s a new grand-daughter to be excited about, and many poetry and geopoetical things brewing. I’ve been reviewing a bit lately, and shortly there will be several more – mostly on here, but in other places too. But this week I’ll be going with my friend Barbara to Geraldine Green’s Write to Roam workshop Geraldine is someone I first encountered via the Earthlines website, and is a poet and thinker with whom I feel a great connection.

I’m taking a little time out afterwards to get a bit deeper into my own poetry – the huldra-folk poems I began last year are expanding in new and fruitful directions, and I’m hoping for a lot from this break. See you all on the other side!
