Meetings and Other Gatherings / Re: Foraging for Haiku - Ginko

Thanks!

Yes, a strong group of people, including two poets-in-residence, one of whom is a co-editor of a strong poetry publishing house.

Thankfully Swindon is a good national major train station link, and barely twenty minutes by train for us.

Sorry to hear that the border police made you pay to go back to your own country!

Calligraphy is definitely worth pursuing. It was wonderful meeting you in person, and let's hope it's not too long before we do again!

Alan (& Karen)

A lovely crowd of people, it was lovely to hear their notes and how they put them together, and then your input and arrangement, you have such a calm voice.
The museum was a fabulous venue for the workshop, I think I'll be popping down there again, so easy to get there.
I've signed up for the news letter a while back, and look forward to receiving it.
You and Karen, busy bees, as always, I don't know how you keep up with it all. It was great to meet you both. Karen gave me a smashing idea -  when we went to have a nosy about in the attic, we saw some dip pens on the old writing slope, and went onto the subject of calligraphy -  hand writing our verses with dip pen in various fonts, so, I've dusted down my old calligraphy books.

I must say I was a bit miffed to have to hand over money to get back into my own country...but worth it for such an inspirational day  :-*

Many thanks.

It was really great to see you!

The booking website only suggested four people so I was stunned how many people actually turned up, and made a large room feel small, but in an intimate way.

We'll start running ginko from our house next year, as we have a meadow two minutes stroll away with fantastic river walks too, and all within a few minutes of walking.

It'll eventually find its way onto the Call of the Page website, and anyone who has signed up to the  newsletter will be informed.

Today we have a lot of tidying up to do, being away all day Sunday, and have our very first one-to-one haibun workshop at the house. It's the first time for our visitor, although she has had one-to-one haiku classes in the past. All very exciting!

It really did feel like a privilege meeting you in person, and you have a wonderful Welsh accent that made me feel homesick for my times with my Aunt who lives near Bridgend.

Thank you so much, it's great when someone attends a workshop of our's, from a different country!  8)

warmest regards,
Alan

Was this a brilliant day? Awesome.
Thanks for a wonderful day away from it all.
