Welcome to my new blog

Hi there.

I'm a writer and freelance teacher and editor with an addiction to new technology.

Having haphazardly kept a blog elsewhere over the past couple of years, I'm determined to start afresh with this one. The challenge will be to keep it updated, interesting and relevant. Time will tell.

New departure - the film-poem, or is it a poem-film

I have been working with my husband and occasional conspirator Peter Salisbury on a new development. We're experimenting with combining words and images to produce something that's neither simply a poem or a film, but depends on both the words and the images to create the aesthetic impact.

Our first project came about when we shared an extraordinary moment on the last night of our honeymoon in Rome in October 2012. We'd been advised to go up to the sixth floor roof-top restaurant, where the view of the city was unparalleled. We arrived just as dusk was falling and the rain clouds were gathering.

What we saw up there astonished us, and was the impetus for this film-poem. Here it is - we hope you like it.
