Saturday June 6th:
This morning, after breaking my rule of not talking about my private life on social media, I wrote about my strange and marvellous last day in my 50s on Facebook.
Then this link arrives. I burst into tears. You just do what you do. But to have this gift of poems to read on my first day in my 60s is extraordinarily moving.
For the web page go here. The driving force was my dear friend Anna Jackson. Beautifully designed by Helen Rickerby, idea for a web page conceived by Harry Ricketts. This is a beautiful birthday gift I will always treasure.
Thank you friends and fellow poets. Thank you.
