 going out with my camera, this time it was an acoustic guitar duo at Rough Trade, Jim Ghedi 

and Toby Hay.
(As you see I am slowly working my way up to the noisier ones)

Following the poetry trail

I arrived at the Poetry Pharmacy with William Sieghart (who was also the founder of the National Poetry Day, yey!) and I was prescribed the following poem 
(and hopefully this will help to get me on the road):

What if this road
by Sheenagh Pugh

What if this road, that has held no surprises
these many years, decided not to go
home after all; what if it could turn 
left or right with no more ado 
than a kite-tail? What if its tarry skin
were like a long, supple bolt of cloth,
that is shaken and rolled out, and takes
a new shape from the contours beneath?
And if it chose to lay itself down 
in a new way; around a blind corner, 
across hills you must climb without knowing 
what’s on the other side; who would not hanker 
to be going, at all risks? Who wants to know 
a story’s end, or where a road will go?

 and I decided to test the waters locally at an easy event with some spoken word

 sculptures

 paintings

 and more spoken word/music performances.
