Today is my mum’s birthday, she would have been 69, just one year younger than her mum is celebrating in this photo.
My mum didn’t make it, she died in April 2014 just three weeks after being diagnosed with liver cancer at the age of 66. Too young.
Her brother Steven, at the centre back of this photo, died earlier this year. Where once there were six, only four remain.

This is mostly going to be a blog full of beautiful images and words from poets and artists who inspire me. There may occasionally be music and excerpts from novels which do the same and very rarely some original work.
I have no intentions of becoming popular and will probably have periods where I forget to come here at all, but it’s nice to have a space to allocate thoughts and emotions to.
