Still in my 30s!
Last Wednesday, at precisely the same time my work was being performed in a cafe in Helsinki, I took part in a poetry slam here in Swansea, which I won (Well I came joint first with two other people)... This means I have to take part in the 'semi finals' -- about two weeks from now.
As for my book launch on Friday night... There are various ways to launch various objects -- trebuchets, mangonels, ballistas, etc -- but my book was launched like a surfboard on a wave of red wine... I would like to thank everybody who came because they wanted to, and everybody else who came because they had to, including Dave Woolley, events organiser (I don't know his official title) for the Dylan Thomas Centre. Mr Woolley has his own book launch in the same building on September 21st...
I think that I've just had a short novel published in France (in French). I'll report on this in more detail when I know for sure!
Don't worry about your fortiethhh..ooops, said the F word! Well, don't worry about it: we'll have some more of the old adulation game in the Forum, in November, so you'll feel like a crazy pop idol again (would two rows of high-kicking, bespectacled and smart-looking teenagers at the entrance screaming "Rheeeeeeeessss!!" suit you?)
Thanks Pedro. Unfortunately the only photographs I have available at this particular moment are all very unflattering... If I get hold of some decent photos I'll put them in the public domain!!!!!!!!
Good Mr Huw! Thanks for doing the sound. Let's meet up soon!
I can't say these are very flattering either!
