Stories Live and in the Making

After five years of performing stories and poems at the HoBB Gardens with guests and volunteers, and at public readings and slams, I’ve started to record a few. Here’s a link to my first – Bellarach.

Vids next, although I don’t know much about editing so things will get uploaded unedited, raw / first take.  Don’t just take my word for it, go and look at our first animation film shot at the HoBB for the World of Water charity whilst making pizza in the dark.

I like to collaborate on all my projects and Little People Books launched with the help of fellow artists Peter Scott  and Mitch Mitchell.

When in Bishop’s Castle, Shropshire, UK,  let’s meet at the first Poetry Pharmacy in the World

Here’s some screen shots of our first Little People Books web site which is now archived. I put it here to remind me to podcast, podcast, podcast.

 

Shopping for Laughing Blue Halloween Pumpkins Seeds

The fabled BLUE Pumpkin? Does it really exist? Have you ever seen a packet of BLUE Pumpkin seeds in a garden shop?

We think they really do exist.

Grown to smile, eerily, one Halloween night –

Now THAT would be a truly frightful sight.

 

So undercover of our new aquaponics unit, we will see
if we can find some seeds and throw some light on this fabled blue variety.

“There’s a blue strain of carrot – potato too,
for a totally ghoulish vegetable stew.
Chop them all up and put in a pot
then bring to the boil with some trouble and toil.

Close the mix tight in a hay box at dawn
till the taste of the darkness within, that’s unborn,
gets released to the night as you open the door –
and forget all your fears as you ask for some more.”
