  1. There was a lot to like about John Grey’s poem, “Why You’re Here.” First, it accomplished exactly what a poem should: It conveyed a range of feelings in a spare and unpretentious way. Second, it told the bittersweet story of a woman’s life of compromise. Third, it left the reader conflicted. And fourth, it made you think about how your OWN life has unfolded.

  2. I very much appreciate the time you have taken to visit my blog and to show your appreciation of some of my work. Thank you.

    I have a pithy interest in the marvels our tiny planets offers us as well as the often glorious antics its inhabitants get up to so, you can be sure I shall catch up with what you’re doing as often as I can.

    Meanwhile, if you have the time and the inclination I will be honoured if you would take a look at my latest novel, Swell. If you do and you’re moved to purchase a copy and for whatever reason you don’t enjoy reading it, I will happily refund you in full.

    I look forward to our next encounter.
