Well I guess "quiet" or "quieter" are not words normally synonymous  with me, but hey ho, you can hope, but perhaps things may be somewhat duller, so I won’t be "quiet" for too long…

Actually I’m not quiet, but largely the week has, but of course NEVER totally uneventful in "Laurie Land" of my "poetry world" so let’s have a look!

Right for a start I have committed to having a stall on 11th March at an indoor market sort of event, where I will promote, collect and raise awareness of Help for Heroes whilst hopefully selling some of my books! Also I am now almost certain that on March 12th I will have some sort of "Book Signing/Promotion" event, but I need to confirm some things yet, so watch this space…

The stand out thing from this week, (I TOLD you it wasn’t totally quiet) is best presented as below…

Great local florists "Vines Flowers" in Westham, Pevensy have come up with a brilliant idea for Mothers Day 26th March.
For a nominal £1 entry fee they are inviting poems about entrants mothers to be submitted by 20th March with the winner (or 2 winners if applicable), to receive a bouquet of flowers that will be delivered (locally only) to their mum on Mothering Sunday!
I am honoured to have been asked to be the judge of the poems, which I have proudly accepted. I will also be donating a copy of one my 4 published books to two runner ups. Also Jo of Vines Flowers is kindly donating all £1.00 entrance fees to my supported charity Help for Heroes + any other money collected in a "wishing well" to be placed in shop to hold the entered poems. A win, win, win then !!!
So you see "quite" lol, exciting and all good stuff, thanks Jo !!!
I am also still awaiting news of a couple of other possible ventures, so again "watch this space" (2)..
As it’s been "quieter" I will leave this Blog (and YOU?), talk to me please in the comments bit below as it gets "quiet and lonely" if no response, but ho ho "be gentle with me"… so back to the ending ? and my leaving this blog with the first part of a coincidentally apt titled poem I have just finished…. "Dwelling", like me maybe this past week…..???
Cheers, Laurie and as ever……… The Journey Continues !!!!!


The dwelling is totally dark

Every time that I pass by,

No lights are ever seen there

So I started to wonder why.

But the “for sale” sign gives a clue

And has been present for a while,

For I guess there are no takers

Queuing up in waiting file.
