A week ago I should have been in Lana (Südtirol) to receive the N.C. Kaser-Lyrikpreis. My life is so changed within the past year that any travel more than the immediately local on foot with stick or by bus or car is impossible. Kindly, Tom Leonard spoke and read for me; and Ulf Stolterfoht read some of his German translations. Sadly I cannot yet put names to the faces of the local poets, musicians, artists (including Maria C. Hilber, Louis Schropp, Gerd Sulzenbacher, Matthias Vieider und Jörg Zemmler) who took part; but I thank them and Tom and Ulf for their generosity, and apologise for being unable to be with them.
Tom Leonard and Ulf Stolterfoht.

I got home from today’s hospital stint to find a mail from Ken Edwards with a link to a piece on his website. Twenty years have passed quicker than flipping a coin. I was touched to see the work again. Thanks to the donor for his generous thought and action.

Rare Morning

Filed under: — site admin @ 7:13 pm

Not having been able to get outside for several days, and having a medical week ahead from tomorrow, I took advantage of rare early morning sunshine, first to notice my single iris had bloomed, and then to have a very short walk. The tide was going out and a stiff onshore wind cleared my head. I’ll be offline for some days.

Luke Allan’s site is to my taste, well and cleanly designed, with intelligent and witty work in several forms. His small press SINE WAVE PEAK is also worth keeping an eye on.
