Where we are and where we will be

Where we are and where we will be
The idea of Edinburgh is a combination of place, soul and symbolic leadership of a nation

poetry; a sign of a healthy soul.

Meant to mention yesterday that it was National Poetry Day and the Poetry in St Andrews Square team spent several hours handing out free poems and offering a personal poetry shopper service! A simple but successful event with hundreds of poems given out and many happy customers.

It was not completely plain sailing. One "Edinburgh lady" looked somewhat distanfully at the proffered poem and said "oh not for me dear, I live here!"; an interesting insight as to how some Edinburgh residents of a certain socal order see their relationship to what happens in their city...
