A bunch of tales I wanted to share with you

A tale I read

A Weekend Diary by John Hegley
[A Weekend Diary by John Hegley]

A tale I heard

Author Margaret Atwood on what scares her:

"I’m too old to be scared by much. You’re scared when you’re young - you don’t know the plot. You haven’t achieved much when you’re 20, so you’re scared about your future, of course you are. You’re hopeful, you’re excited, but you’re also scared. So what I’m hopeful about, rather than scared, are the young people. They are changing the political discourse."

A tale I saw

Small Town Drama by Mark Grist

A tale I wrote

I'm passionate,
now I've had two babies,
that from the very beginning
the littlest of people
are overwhelming.
This book is 
a step-by-step guide 
on how to not
eat your toddlers, 
but give you the confidence 
to get creative
and grow as people.

(A found poem rearranging
some words from the blurb
of 'Wean in 15' by Joe Wicks.)
