7th August 2011
Hey, this is a rare and lovely feeling – I’m pleased, very pleased! Both the Morvah Schoolhouse Gallery Exhibition and Penzance Literary Festival evening went very well. I was apprehensive, nervous but also excited about them both, each being ‘firsts’ for me. As it turned out, they were very well attended – thank you everyone who came - and each generated huge amounts of praise (and good sales!).
The highlight for me was undoubtedly listening to Michael read his poems and prose from our newly published book ‘Upon High hedges’ at the Penzance Literary Festival. His delivery was superb and learning from him how each piece came about was a rare pleasure – we even learnt how to walk to the tip of a longboard (that’s a long surf board)! During the readings I showed my photographs which accompany the poems in the book. Following the success of this evening watch out for our forthcoming video of Michael performing his poems accompanied by my photographs.
