Magnolia tree in our garden, inspiration this strange April of 2020
‘There are some poems that feel like guarantees of your work to yourself.’
For me there are some periods that feel like guarantees of your work to yourself. The times I spend at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre at Annaghmakerrig are some. The investment I made going to Djerassi Artists Residence in California was another.
I feel this is one of those times. This time of 'not quite lockdown' and covid 19.
Staying true, being honest, especially to yourself, and allow the heart and the creative self to blossom.
