Juggling

This is really what it feels like at the moment - an enormously complicated juggling act, with four book launches in the space of four weeks in four different states.

A very satisfying afternoon at the final event of the Lockleys Seniors Writing Competition on the topic of 'My Hope', with awards in both sections: a Second Place in the Poetry competition and First Place in the Prose Writing contest. This annual event always sets a challenge, in the form of a topic or theme for writers within the local government area, and I always enjoy exploring what can be done with a topic. And the prize money will certainly be useful in paying for four coming book launches.

We're Back

Oh, such mixed feelings! Wonderful to be back after eleven weeks with friends and family. But so hard to say goodbye to the freedom and the fun of being away. After five weeks in Spain, roaming from Madrid to Valencia, then south to all those romantic Andalucian cities- Granada with its Alhambra, Cordoba and its mosque, Ronda, Arcos - then north through places like Caceres and Salamanca, to the end of the pilgrim track at Santiago, all across the north borders of Spain, cooking classes in Arriondas, eating pinxtos in San Sebastian, south again to glorious Segovia with that magical aqueduct. and back to gracious Madrid ... they were weeks to remember.
