26 Lies and 26 Steps

The last two 26 projects I've been part of have been family affairs: for 26 Lies, I collaborated with son Thomas, and son Jamie did the walk with me for 26 Steps.  Thanks guys!

You can see my photo, map and poem for 26 Steps here.

You can see my words and Thomas' illustration (at an easier to see size) for 26 Lies here, and also, if you're in London, they are on display as part of the 26 Lies exhibition at the Free Word Centre, until 28th October.  Take a photo for us if you get there - it's a bit of a trek from Fife!

NOBODY likes to watch/listen to themselves ...

... and I'm no exception.  But I'm a professional, right?  And we have to do these things.  So, deep breath and let's begin ...

Swallows and a Tin/Ten Anniversary

a) I'm missing Indonesia, but the swallows gathering on the wires out the front window are quite comforting.

b) I started blogging exactly 10 years ago, on 17 Sept. 2006.  If my blog and I were married, this would be our tin anniversary.  That's what wikipedia says, any way, though I wonder if there's just a misspelling of ten.

c) I see my first students as an official RLF Fellow at Dundee University on Monday - wish us luck!
