I was born in Sydney Australia and gained a very meagre education by the time I was 16. At that point I thought perhaps I would learn more by leaving formal education and living a life. Therefore I worked until I had enough money to leave Australia and travel to London and here I learnt about life. Fast forward another 12 years and I went to university and read English. Here I discovered a love affair with poetry which has continued ever since. So for the last 25 odd years I have been reading discussing and enjoying poetry. So given half a chance I will share all I know with like minded people. I am also enchanted by life stories and urge you to tell me yours.
