Post Callander 1

Back from the wonderful Callander Poetry Weekend, but I haven’t yet downloaded my photos, so I’ll come back to it. In the meantime, Kevin Cadwallender has sent me this photo of Larry Butler and I during our session on poetry in gardens. First time my knees have appeared in public. Larry also found a fair quantity of chanterelles in the woods close by, and they made a delicious lunch.

PS: The first photos are now up on the Poetry Scotland website.

    My goodness, that <>is<> a kilt? What fine knees you have Colin. And how deeply you are both immersed in those books. I shan’t mention the beards, then… oops, I just have!

  2. Colin Will says:

    That is the kilt (I’m of Clan Gunn), plus doublet and Jacobean shirt. And we’re both wearing the Tibetan prayer scarves I brought back from Lhasa – Larry’s also a Buddhist. We read a huge variety of poems about plants and gardens, from Chaucer onward, and the audience was very responsive.

    So does this photo need one of Barbara’s caption competitions?And what would be the prize?

  4. Colin Will says:

    OK Rachel, I’ll invite captions. Prize will be a Calder Wood Press title of my choice.First feedback photos now on the Poetry Scotland website – http://www.poetryscotland.co.uk

  5. Rachel Fox says:

    OK – how about “On their way to visit the baby Jesus two of the wise men stopped to consult their Rough Guides whilst the third nipped into the pub for a quick half”?x

    I’m glad they got an airing! The mushrooms sound tasty too

    Dear Colin, I have been to a poetry reading at last, a very, very particular one as you can read in my latest post.All my best wishes,Davide

  8. BarbaraS says:

    Ah, I did wonder about the scarves, so thanks for that. Thanks for info on the kilt too! Captions then? I think Rachel’s is very hard to beat. How about:‘The two seers consulted their Nostradamus books to look for correlations with the supercollider.’
