So a few years ago I started writing poetry on Tumblr but left the community for many reasons. Sometimes I found myself writing what I thought people wanted me to write, other times I would write things which I wanted to write but it all became very personal, in more ways than one. Now I write here, maybe it’s a chance to start again, maybe it’s a chance for me to be more true to the type of writing that I like.
At the moment it is likely that this site will be poetry, as the snippets which come to me as I walk can find their way easily to these digital pages, however there is a chance that I might get on with some other pieces in time. Occasionally I will post my photographs.
‘Learning to love the silence’ refers to my learning to be alone, learning to realise that I don’t always need someone else in my life in order to be happy. I am learning to understand that the silence, isn’t really that quiet at all.
