I’m so excited to have a REAL website back up; I haven’t used WordPress since the good old Midden days and it feels great to have a proper platform to stand on again!
I’m going to try to give you an update every Sunday (my day of rest) a wee catch up on what’s going on in the world of Kate.
I went to church this morning (weird, I know) and really enjoyed sitting in communal silence with a bunch of pleasant strangers listening to a brass band, the glorious sound of a proper organ and singing some of my favourite carols. Even just the bells ringing at 10am on a sunny Sunday morning lifted my spirits and my heart.
It took me back to the year I spent in Germany living in the Manse of Cadolzburg Castle where the bells tolled every quarter hour of my existence… a sound I grew to find strangely comforting, once I got used to the aural intrusion.
I’m actually supposed to be in Germany at the moment but something held me here in Scotland, so I am happily camped out on the sofa at The Coach House (wearing dad’s yeti-suit as it is fricking freezeballs) packaging up pre-orders and playing with Mr Zig, who, we have recently discovered, HATES the snow! SUCH a big jessie.
Over half of the first edition has already gone out to various locations around the globe, the furthest afield so far is to Kari in California. It feels great to be free of all the pain that went into those poems. Each book I post leaves me feeling a little lighter. Ute, Kevin, Gordon, Duncan, Eddie and Pam, thank you for helping me pull it all together – I hope your copies have landed on your doormats!
I must also thank Dòl Eoin and Grant for the stunning cinematography and digital wizardry involved in promoting a project like this. It has been such a joy working with such talented folk. MORE!!!
I’m a bit of a wordy birdy so I will call a halt here, but please keep popping back as Dòl and I have some more visual treats in store for you…
Much love, stay cosy,
