“There is something about a gift, that no matter what your feelings are about it, you feel obliged to keep it. This was the case of a book that was gathering dust on my bookshelf – LIVERPOOL Gateway of Empire. A gift from the writer after he had bought one of my works . Something to remind me of him, but had in fact left an overwhelming, but unexplained feeling of guilt. After it had been read, it had served its purpose.”

Thus far the miles taken from Shakespeare’s Sonnet How heavy do I journey on my way.
