More Rob Mackenzies

The number of Rob Mackenzies in the world who write poetry keeps increasing. If readers know of any more Rob Mackenzies, or indeed are Rob Mackenzies themselves, you might want to take advantage of the generous offer at the link.

Although if you click on the photo-link there, the first photo that comes up isn't me - just in case anyone is confused.

There is a Martyn Clayton who plays Aussie rules football and one who recently died in the Channel Islands, another is king of the high-break score at the Skipton snooker club !

I can imagine the number of Rob Mackenzies worldwide must be vast.

There should be a movie: "Being Rob Mackenzie."

There's a Heather O'Neill out there in Canada that has published a book of poems. I've been meaning to read some of her work.

Your blog entry is quite timely. I received an e-mail from someone just the other day who mistook me for her, then realized they'd got the wrong Heather.

I had wondered if that would ever happen.

Ever check to see what other Rob Mackenzies of the world do with their life?

Heather O'Neills seem to write, act, ride horses, and take part in different sports.

Rob Mackenzie has written two self-help books on children's behaviour for parents. Rob Mackenzie has written a biography of the missionary David Livingstone. Rob Mackenzie is a C&W singer.

And there are three poets, including me. Perhaps we could do a joint gig as "The Three Rob Mackenzies." The novelty value might attract a new audience for poetry even if the poems didn't.

Interesting.

One more Rob Mackenzie and you've got yourself a poetry quartet. What a novelty! That could take poetry reading to a new level!

I just found a folk singer Heather O'Neill. Cool. We can sing harmony.

If middle names start to match in this entertaining same name thingy, I think it we may be reaching spooky territory.
