Welcome to autumn – there’s a seasonal poem for you here, End of Summer by Stanley Kunitz.
But if you love summer and are dreading the ‘cruel wind’, here is some shelter for you:
*I’ve shared five of my favourite journal exercises exclusively for the Yummy Yoga Girl website. Enjoy!
*I’m so happy that my list of 50 things to do today to help other people has already had some lovely results. I’ve heard that one man has signed up to drive people, another to give blood, and I’ve already been sent two people’s own lists. Do share yours if it’s something that appeals to you.
*I will be running a six week Writing and Wellbeing course for the University of Kent, starting October 22nd. Details are on the website here.
*I’m delighted to be going to France at the end of September as part of the Poetry Exchange podcast team. The Poetry Exchange is a conversation where people discuss what poems have become friends to them, and why. If you haven’t listened to any of the podcasts, you’re in for a treat – listen here.
