Looking ahead -
because it doesn't seem right to leave ho-ho-ho imagery on my blog until February, here's a nudge to all poets in striking distance of Frome: Our 'Poetry Café' reopens with a flourish on 13th Feb for 'Valentine Vices' - an evening with the spotlight on personal passion, with Rose Flint, artist, writer, broadcaster and Glastonbury goddess, supported by Gordon Egginton the popular winner of the 2006 Festival Slam, and Frome’s own Lucy Howlett. Open mic and prizes. Email me if you need to know more.
And looking back: Ben and his dad, also a Peter, are recreating one of those touching green-aware dialogues that must been frequent among the conscientious in the aftermath of Christmas:
- family member 1 (indignant) "Mum liked the goat!"
- family member 2 (goading) "It never writes."
