I am heading for sunnier climes later today. June has been bad in Scotland and it looks like more rain is on the way. Outside the clouds lie thick and low. Blogging might be sporadic over the next couple of weeks, but I'll try and blog a little once I work out where to do it.
Books I'll have with me:
The Best Man There Ever Was - Annie Freud
The Long and the Short of it - Roy Fisher
The Truth of Poetry - Michael Hamburger
Incidentally, I've just received the nicest rejection slip ever this morning. It reads - "I want to express my regrets that, due to limited space, we aren't able to accept your work for this issue. It wasn't easy making the final decisions. There were literally thousands of poems. And I want to inform you that you were among the top percent. Your poem 'walking out' was in the top 20. If only I could've taken a couple more!"
Just missed out. This keeps happening.
