About Me and My Poetry

Englishman from South Yorkshire. Ph.D so call me Doctor? Retired. Research scientist as a job then with UN in Vienna as scientific advisor. Always an artist- dabbled then more serious with paintings (too many canvasses now to count) and computer art. Written poems since was 17 the adolescent years onwards. Active member of Poetry Group Vienna. Now I paint more. Have about 500 poems to pick through so I should earn a few points hey? Written novel and started seven more. Written a childrens story (illustrated by me) three screen plays and three stage plays. Wheee. Live in Austria in a quiet country village in glorious countryside. Have lovely USA wife, Norfolk terrier-Bessy, oh and a new stray kitten named Gwen. Renovating old house and now gardening avidly too. Is there no end to tasks? Oh forgot, sing and play blues harmonica, guitar and love photograph (the digital camera). Oh and I am a keen stamp collector since dad died some years ago (anyone out there want to swap stamps). Not a train spotter!
