In 2018, I set myself to write a monthly essay on aspects of poetry I had been pondering upon. The object was to stir my recalcitrant synapses as well as to share, with anyone who cared to read them, some of my thoughts and enthusiasms.

There is plenty of inspiration to be found in the landscapes and seascapes here in the lovely Pays de Caux in Normandy.
