Biography

I'm a lover of words, wit, wild things and whimsy.

Samples

The spaces between In a quest for absolutes it's easy to overlook the spaces in-between. The gaps dividing light and dark, wrong and right, life and death. Yet in these spaces matter gathers, a cornucopia of random thoughts and moments, impossible to categorise and messy - like life's ball of lint. But in the muddle, the occasional treasure is found and pocketed to appreciate another day. And even that which we would discard - the intangible fluff - can help us buffer the heart when life gets restrictive. I have learned it's in the gaps that wisdom's found. And that life is never absolutes - even when we try to control the conditions, it's just a sum of the spaces between. - Kate Gadenne

go ahead and clap....while you're at it, throw money.

i am just a poor poet, struggling to survive on words.

so far, I have lost 75 pounds. Guess my words have not
enough meat.

Protein in poetry is very important.

"a cornucopia of random thoughts and moments" - what an eminently true definition of what life is. I love your economy of language - "brevity is the soul of wit" Samuel Johnson once said. Good luck with your writing and with all that you seek to achieve "a woman's reach should exceed her grasp, or what's a heaven for?". Robert Browning (slightly amended).

Hi, thanks for commenting "Geneva Airport" and "Written in Anger and Confusion". Oh god yeh travelling with toddlers... I remember 2 christmases ago we made the mistake of trying to do Grenoble-Bristol by TRAIN. The train is okay but metro for crossing Paris and London with 2 kids under 5 and 2 large cases.... HELL ON EARTH. (I had to buy metro tickets at the machine with my foot on my 2-year-old having a tantrum on the floor to stop her running away).

In looking at all the supportive comments below, I'm humbled. I'm still getting the hang of the community and like that there is so much reinforcement of the works of others. What a great space to grow and learn. I've had a huge week and have just been crazily putting up a backlog of old work, but I'm looking forward to some time out soon and the opportunity to explore the work of all those who have been tireless suppporters, and discovering some new gems too.

Is the muddle
in the middle?

I found some lint one time-
it was in that space
between pockets.

I appreciate you going back on some of my older posts and reading them. That is my greatest fear for my poetry - not that it doesn't get noticed, but that it gets forgotten. I learn more and more every time someone notices what I wrote, as I get to go back and critique myself on things I never even realized were there. I guess monsters are like our old poems aren't they? You never know which ones will come to light to help or hinder a journey.
So, thanks for that Kate, and it's been nice talking to you.🌷🌷
