* My good lady Adelle won Poetry Book Of The Year 2009 in 3:AM Magazine. Congratulations to her and also to her (and also for one poetry book, mine too) publisher Blackheath Books for winning Publisher of The Year.
* The final edit of my novel Richard is done. More news on its publication to follow in 2010.
* So Rage Against The Machine went No. 1 in the UK (see below). How very odd. And funny. I first saw them play in 1993, met them in 2000 and have interviewed them at various times for various publications since.
* It's the winter equinox. Half way through the day I walked up a big hill in the snow. Walked for an hour until I was sweating and breathless and the light painted the sky salmon pink and the sky painted the snow right back and the sweat patches turned to sheets of salt on my back.
