This blog is to share my poetry and other writing as well as the work of other writers I enjoy.

At the moment (Dec 2010) a lot of my writing is dealing with the recent suicide of my wife after a difficult separation, so some of it’s pretty heavy  and along a similar theme.

For me writing is a big part of coming to terms with what has happened and helps me to get a clearer view of what is going on inside me. There seems to be lots of advice around for people who experience the suicide of a loved one, but for me hearing personal experiences and stories has helped more than advice. I don’t know if what I post will be of any use to anyone else but it seems to help me to share it.

The posts are in order of when they were written and  I will continue to add to the blog as I write and may even drag out some of my old poetry to put up too.
