Alan Summers' plinth-spot

What's important to you that can be summed up in just one single word?

Alan Summers would like as many people as possible to send him "important words" and he will read out as many as he can during his hour on Trafalgar Square's fourth plinth on Monday.

I think this is an interesting project and an imaginative use of his hour in the spotlight.

For further details on the thinking behind it and how you can despatch your word visit http://www.oneandother.co.uk/participants/Alan_S

St Swithin's Day

My late Mum's diary from 1943 (aged 10) has the following entry for July 15th. It is so perfect, it is almost a senryu.

"Rained all day. Grandma came for tea"

Three Lights Gallery - Summer of Love


I have one poem at the three lights summer of love show.
The show commemorates the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, and the theme is peace and love.
Worth checking out as always.
