About me…

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.

  1. Love your “Learning to love the silence”! Something we should all learn to do. I find the silence I like the best is in “The Backside Of The Night” between about 3 a.m. to 6 a.m. Best time to write and think! Check this piece out on my site.
    Love the way silence lets one hear your inner voices!

  2. I visited this page aeons ago attracted by the phrase learning to love the silence, I am here again now, with a different heart and soul and appreciate the words even more, I too have learnt in the most painful of ways this year that people will come and go and that like you I don’t need people to be happy, it’s all about being happy with me. thank you for your comments and reading on my blog, it’s been a wonderful support and comfort. I so enjoy your poetry, the snippets of unsuspecting life written with much clarity.

    1. I’m still learning Gina, very much so. I really appreciate you taking the time to write here and I am really touched to have given you some support and comfort along the way this year. Thank you for sharing your story with us. Sending a little squeeze from the snow to the Equator (I’d pack some up and send it if I could) 🙂 A

      1. My pleasure to always read tender poetry, simple words that weave a beautiful story, I am so attracted to your lines. It’s lovingly crafted. We are here to help each other along with words and encouragement, means so much more in a world where so many people want to be critics I just prefer kindness in every situation. I don’t get on WordPres as much as I’d like to with new work commitments so I am happy to see you on a another social media platform that I am on more often!

        I love that pinch of snow, it makes me melt, thank you. And when it gets too cold remember there’s lots of sunshine and warmth where I am, you will get special delivery if you need a few rays! Blessings to you A!
