I study people all the time. For some reason, we're not very good at seeing what's there or hearing what we're hearing.
I'm conscious of a series of circles working its way through my life. And at this particular moment I have come round to the beginning of my writing cycle. It begins with poetry. There's hardly a day that goes past on which I don't write poetry.
I am not fighting for success, just to get more beauty out of myself and share it with more people.
At the heart of 'The Famished Road' is a philosophical conundrum - for me, an essential one: what is reality? Everybody's reality is subjective; it's conditioned by upbringing, ideas, temperament, religion, what's happened to you.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
