One of the many pleasures of Blogging, is sharing the love of a subject, in this case Literature. This sharing normally takes the shape of “ you show me yours and I’ll..” as we exchange information on our latest book, writer, poem etc. But, every now and then a friend will pass something on to you, purely because they perceive it as more your sort of thing. In this light I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to a long time friend and supporter of The Parrish Lantern, Bellezza, for heading this my way. I wasn’t sure at first how to use this information before deciding that the best thing to do, was just put it out there & hope others are as interested as myself.
