More important things

on December 9, 2019

There are far too many important things going on in the world for you to want to know about me.

I’ve got some work as a film extra, and this week I had a fitting for my costume; I had a good session at the hospital and wrote some new poems; I went to the funeral of my last remaining aunt, took my cat to the vet, attended and wrote the minutes for a TADS meeting, and sold some stuff on eBay. Today I wrote instant poems for people in John Lewis in Birmingham, and had a meeting to plan the next Poetry on Loan training session.

And I sent in my postal vote, which is much more important than all of those things. Forget about everyday trivia – just decide what’s important, and vote.

That is all.
