My Dad has a new collection of poetry out today! His poems are extraordinary and I find them endlessly inspiring. I have to admit I been shamelessly plundering Dad's poems for ideas for many years and I know they will keep me well stocked up for the rest of my days. One line that I always come back to in his poem 'Fishermen' spurs me on to keep on plugging away..."and everything that matters is just about to happen".
