St Michael’s Church, Duntisbourne Rouse, Gloucestershire. The nave of this sweet little church dates back to Saxon times. Many features of interest have accumulated down the centuries; one of the most recent is an organ donated by the sisters of New Zealand author Katherine Mansfield.

History is a cyclic poem written by Time upon the memories of man.

— Percy Bysshe Shelley

Hello, friends. To celebrate the almost-release of Fleeting Ink, I’ve reduced Crossroads Poetry to £1.53 ($2.99 for Americans). It won’t stay that way, though, so if you’re interested, now might be the time to buy it!
