I’m now retired and living with my wife and Springer Spaniel in a village outside Cambridge U.K. I have dual U.K. and Australian citizenship, having lived in the latter and also travelled in Asia, in-between living in London for two years. I came back to the U.K. in 1993 as a Buddhist monk and was later involved in interfaith between Buddhist and Christian monasticism, which led to my returning to lay life. I now identify as a Christian – albeit with Buddhist influences!
My interests lie in writing – prose and poetry, informed by my experience of life plus religion, history, and current affairs. I also enjoy cooking, walking (with wife and dog), and the joys of friendship. I have previously posted on UKAuthors. My verse tends toward rhyming, but as a beginner I’m always willing to improve my craft.

A deeply felt poem; and if it's possible to say what I liked, it was how you told the story from both sides, which further emphasised the heartbreak. I have been fortunate, in that all my family have died while I lived in the UK and they in...Read full comment
