I was born a very long time ago in Fife.  Time at Edinburgh University led to a BMus and a career in teaching.

For a number of years from the mid 80s home was in East Ross in the north of Scotland, surrounded by good friends, lovely scenery, a large, slightly overgrown garden and too many wild rabbits.

Around 12 years ago poetry writing became an unexpected, compelling and liberating hobby. Since taking early retirement, photography and weaving have also become time consuming interests.

Home is now in the Inner Hebrides, where abundant clean air, shimmering water and the wildness of mountains inspire deep thoughts.

On the following pages you will find some of my poems and photos, along with my Blog - Elfnotes.  I will add new entries in all three categories from time to time, so if you enjoy what you find here, please do come back again and feel free to link to my site. 
I'd be happy to read your opinions in my Guestbook.
