An interior place

You make a poem with words – but you also build an interior place when you write …

John Fox
Poetic Medicine

A few days ago we were delighted to receive a handwritten letter from one of our most thoughtful and imaginative friends. We’ve kept many of his letters for years and always look forward to them. I’m thinking of Robert this evening whilst mulling over John Fox’s “interior place”.

Robert told us that he’d attended a creative writing course a decade or so ago, at which time  a number of mind’s eye characters were brought to life by his pen. Wonderfully, he finds himself still wondering about them – how they’re getting along, what’s next in their lives?

Yes, indeed, you “build an interior place when you write”.
