The light is brightening, finally, dawning you could say, with much to contemplate. For example,
Richard Toovey and Thirty-Six-Immortal-Poets-Japanese-Asian-Culture-/360314130089 pt=Art
_Prints&hash=item53e4. But keep a very close watch on Colin Sutherill’s Snake Eyes
when accompanying Andy Hickmott and Zoology 101. Instead, you could head for the coast
to watch Carolyn Oulton watching the Ebb-Tide, or join Beth Somerford at Ditchling Beacon, steering clear of The Hound of the Baskervilles ( Will Kemp) and David Greenslade’s Wicker Basket Tank if it comes at you, maybe After a minor medical hiatus (Elizabeth Birchall)..
So, back where we started, and Antony Mair is Thinking of Shelley in the Winter Gales,
John Vickers pondering The white shadow, while Paul Connolly considers the Night and Stars
Indisputable Truth (Bogusia Wardein), that’s what you are mostly going to find in this issue – though maybe best take it easy with Jenny Hamlett and The Enchanted Cakes at Capenhurst
