Words in the Water

The season is nearly over at the Lido and so is my poetry residency there too. It has been a merging of two of my obsessions and I think that comes across in every length and every word I penned. I also enjoyed bringing new people into the Lido through the come and swim with me events and it has been a little exciting to know that my poetry has made people think about going back to the Lido after 20yrs or even going there for the first time.

I didn’t realise when I set out on the residency that this is what I would enable to happen but I am glad that I have. The wonder of people’s faces who have swam with me as they lie in the sky with no clouds or they experience the coffee I often write about has made it very worthwhile. It’s been so humbling to work with the poets that I have and there will be another blog next week which will feature Ross Sutherland’s poem so it ain’t over yet.

Last of all, I am very proud of the following sound scape that some incredible people helped to make happen. Please have a listen and let me know what you think and please do share.
