    James! How uplifting to read of this event! Best news in a long time…your love of poetry and your
    humility, impress me greatly,.

    • James Sale

      Thank you Patricia – really kind of you to say so: not many people notice my humility! I think it was Peter Sellars who said: “I am the Prince of Humility”! My email address is james@motivationalmaps.com – do drop me a line so that I can respond to you more fully. Hope you can make the event.

    How awesome it was to be among poets of such talent and insight! Good poetry, like fine art and beautiful music, is ennobling. James, thank you for the warm welcome.

      Thanks Mary – great to have a newbie (a SCP newbie) on board and I hope you and your writing group will contribute in due course to this site. All the best – James
