Monmouth Residency

First day of my sixth month Wye Valley Residency.

Marvellous meeting, Bristolian folk exuding health and enthusiasm.

Flowers in bricks on bridge.

Hippies next to white church - no shoes in the rain.

Stillborn lamb - eye pecked out.

Childhood detritus - coke cans and skate ramps.

Noise beside river - "Busiest road in Wales".

Colouring in posters with felt pens.

Tea with milk and no sugar for everyone.

Puttanesca for dinner - rushed and lost keys.

Drill Hall, Chepstow for Picturesque talk.

Seaside rain - strange to be here by myself.
