I have been deeply disturbed by the degree of censorship I have witnessed in the last 18 months of my life. Never would I have dreamed such a thing would profoundly shape my reality, having long taken freedom of thought and choice to be a ‘given’ in my homeland. And now, I am no longer sure that its presence will grace the lives of my children and grandchildren.
My conversations with Dean Spillane-Walker of ‘The Poetry of Predicament’ podcast always leave me with a sense that some pieces have come together in a meaningful way; and the certainty that more will follow. I am ever-grateful to Dean’s willingness and ability to listen expansively and with great patience as I walk myself through to both meaning and relevance.
It’s a deeper dive… and one that might well provoke your own languishing truths.
