Number One:

FREEDOM OF SPEECH – 21ST CENTURY: I wrote this on my New Year’s day valley walk when I came across a vehicle distastefully advertising in green how they were born to hunt followed by an image of a fox! It later became my subject with marks added to this paper construction for submission to the current Oriel Davies Gallery open writing competition theme ‘Crossed Paths’. FORTHCOMING COMING EVENT at the gallery: READINGS AND PRIZE GIVING on SATURDAY 9TH FEBRUARY 2.30 – 4 pm http://www.orieldavies.org/en/talks
