A short note to say I’ve broken my arm going over the handlebars of my bike, and had to have surgery to insert a metal plate, otherwise I’d have lost most of the use of my left hand, according to the consultant. So I’m grounded for a few weeks – no driving, no cycling, no gym.

I’m glad to be home and resting now, and one of the nice things waiting for me was a note to say that my Walking in Glencanisp poem is now up on Bolts of Silk.

    Oh, that sounds sore, sorry to hear that.
    I enjoyed the poem, especially how you manage to pack and evoke so much landscape in it.
