I love old poetry, and atmospheric snippets of stories. Odd tales of long-forgotten myth or memory, which come floating past in the strange twilight between sleep and wakefulness, so you can never quite catch them, only follow into nostalgic dreams.
Life is stressful, and the older I get the more I hanker after a gentle divorce from the hard reality of the day. Armed with my trusty mic, my little, falling-apart 'Poems Old and New', and the occasional companionship of my muse, I aim to follow that winding, lullaby path and see where it leads.

I read classic poems, my own poems, old folklore, other people's stories* - anything which might ease the mind into fantasyland. Most readings are short; we don't want to stay awake too long, do we?

I hope you enjoy what you do hear. I have been looking at #folkloreThursday on Twitter for some interesting inspiration of late, and there are some beautiful books, but I am finding longform makes me a bit hoarse. That might improve over time, though. Is there something you'd like me to read? Do let me know.
