Merry Christmas, 2021

I’m planning to wind down my online activities for the year from around now, so I thought I should take the opportunity to thank everyone who has followed along with the blog here and my various publishing activities through 2021. You make this obsession of mine with writing and publishing poetry feel a little special.

Thank you.

Perhaps my very most recent activity will serve as a Christmas present, of sorts.

You may recall that during our dreadful Summer of 2020/21 I started to write about the daily news and fears the bushfires brought to every doorstep here in Australia. A traumatising experience – sadly just one of many since. In recent days I have audio recorded that collection and intend to post it (initially) on my author page at

The first installment of five poems has just gone live. If you’d like to listen, here is the link.

I’ll post the rest from time to time over the Summer.

Meanwhile, I wish you all (a slightly early) Merry Christmas.

    • Thank you, Ellen. I certainly feel a touch weary from it all. Have just completed the second Reading. I think there will be 12 altogether – 58 poems to present, so quite a volume of data.

      I hope you and Ted have the most wonderful of festive seasons. I continue in awe of both your photography results. Outstanding.

      I wish you more.
