A few years ago I had the pleasure of attending a writers’ workshop with the Irish poet Pat Boran. It was extremely informative and did a great deal to boost my confidence as a writer. Earlier this week an English photographer I follow on Facebook – he and I once wrote for the same e-zine – embarked on a personal project in anticipation of his 65th birthday. Over the next 26 weeks 65×65 will become a collection of photographs and haikus that appeal to their creator, Martin Wilson. WformsThis afternoon my twitter feed contained a link to a review of Pat Boran’s latest book which just happens to be a collection of photographs and haiku. I immediately thought of Martin’s project and shared a link to the review of Pat’s book on his Facebook page. Within minutes Martin posted a comment “Thanks Frank, I will enjoy this, I’ve ordered a copy.” Surely a serendipitous turn of events!



  1. I’m curious to find out what blog platform you are utilizing?
    I’m having some small security problems with my latest site and I’d like to find something more safeguarded.

    Do you have any suggestions?
