Cretaceous Concerto

Here’s a silly poem that came to me a few days ago from I know not where. Always very glad when such absurdities intrude, of course – best not to question them too closely – might be mistaken for ingratitude! Huge thanks

Buoyancy

Here’s a video I made with my favourite out of the blue Christmas surprise last year, which I’ve been intending to repost for some time (FB vid-compression is brutal). It’s meant as a big thank you to my friend Graham, for giving

Peaceful Wonderment

Some keen observers may already have noticed our long-arc deliberate step-by-step building-out process. Here’s another big (fun) new area which we’ve been intending to add for some time – video! This (filterable category) will contain poetry readings – and also original music
