I’m very much looking forward to the start of my poetry & song tour in Taunton tomorrow night, celebrating the publication of my new book ‘Meditation Mind’.
The venues are mainly bookshops where I’ll be playing acoustic guitar and my husband Christian will play double-bass and we’ll be performing some rarely-heard songs from my old albums plus a brand new song I played for the first time at Gaunts House the other night. I’ll read some poems from ‘Meditation Mind’ and there will be a chance for questions at the end.
On Saturday we’re doing one of these poetry & song gigs in Oxford as a fundraiser for the wonderful mental health charity Restore, of which I’m a patron. They are a fantastic charity helping people recover from mental illness and transform their lives. All support very welcome.
I was so delighted to get the award for public service and advocacy from the International Society For Bipolar Disorder. They do such good work raising awareness of this illness and supporting the people who have it.
Now I’m off to the BBC in London to perform on Radio 4’s ‘Front Row’ tonight…
Hope all’s well in your world.
