I Just Want To Be Alone

On 15th April, three full pages of The Sunday Times HOME section were devoted to restaurateur and chef, Tom Kitchin, his house, his Scandi-style extension, his TV appearances, his wife, his children, his friends, his sofa, etc. Imagine my surprise when I read that Kitchin is a "reluctant celebrity".

Keeping On And Keeping Out

My poems, The Jewish Musician and Idyll were published today in issue 182 of ORBIS magazine. My first publication in ORBIS was in issue 63, in March 1987. The poem was called Keeping Out Winter.
30 years on, I'm still hoping to keep winter out.

The Student Flat

My poem, The Student Flat, was published yesterday in THE HERALD as part of a week-long sequence celebrating Valentine's Day. Unfortunately, I did not find this out until today and have had to pay £4.65 to order a copy of the paper from Glasgow. Still, when it arrives, I'll be able to catch up on yesterday's news.
