Thank you for your support Alan! I love your sample. Very strong words. What better source for poetry, or any creative work really, than personal experience and trauma. A picture is worth a thousand words!
Now, imagine a picture that is made of words...! I always love this kind of writting! Kudos!🌷

Hello Alan, thanks for the kind words about The Legacy.Was interested to hear you're a mycologist. I knew dead mens' trumpets (not the latin name) from Italy, where they dry them and sprinkle the powder on food, rather like truffles. I found a lot of funghi in Angus in my sister's wood, so took them home to look them up, and there found the amethyst deceivers! That book, however, said they were toxic! Here many people go looking for funghi in autumn especially, and there is a special office where you can take your catch to have it vetted, as people die every year from eating poisonous ones. Interesting you went to Tiscali - the wild flowers in Sardinia are wonderful late April early May. Entire roadsides of asphodel, orchids, French lavender, marvellous thistles, rock roses, rosemary, Aegean Lilies, witches fingers, Barbary nut, and later sea squill and those beautiful sea daffodils. A real Eden.
Thanks again, Jennifer

Alan reading NEWSREEL is like watching an old film.

It's like remembering the things in the past you wish you could leave behind but the images keep replaying themselves over and over and over.

We should NEVER forget!

Brilliant.
