"There is no substitute for experience -combined with passion and focus it becomes priceless."
One of my favourite poems, Bass Lake 3, was published in the book Mariposa ExposedMariposa Exposed ISBN 978-1-927974-10-0, which celebrated both Canada's and Orillia's sesquicentennials (150th anniversaries) in 2017. My thanks to editors Ross Greenwood and Dennis Rizzo.
I have posted a couple of examples of my open mic or 'pop-up poetry' recordings above. The first is intended to be jocular, and is titled Making love to my girlfriend's Nan. The second is striving to be romantic, and is called Love has a name.
In the past three years I have been published twelve times in seven different publications, including three poems in The Keystone, (ISBN: 978-1907435300) and two other poems in The Surrey Writer's Society Annual, available worldwide on Amazon. (ISBN 978-1530660711)
My poem Love has a name, was a winner in a romantic poetry contest sponsored by Interflora for Valentines Day 2015. It was then published in Interflora's Little E-Book of Romantic VerseLittle E-Book of Romantic Verse, on page 8.
I contributed scripts for a series of Masonic plays that were performed at four venues in Surrey, UK during March and April 2014. The theme was 'Masonic Ambassadorship,' and we had a troup of six experienced actors bringing the words to life. You can see the promotional material to the left. In all, 226 people attended and the plays were well received. My thanks to the 'Company.'
