Inspiration is a friend that lights up the far corner. All the better when that inspirational friend becomes an inspirational wife


A total misspent youth when it comes to reading or the arts is a constant disappointment and embarassment to me as I mature - ha will I ever mature? A dreamer of romantic notions that fail, in the main, to be implemented - well that's not entirely true because there are some cases where I feel driven to implement my mind's dream, usually revolves around a truly inspirational person. I have worked abroad and find it so strange that there a letter received lifts the soul and inspires a reply, yet when returning home we (I) stop, except for a christmas update - WHY? I believe I have floated through life doing a reasonable job most of the time but have "missed" so much of the detail. I admire song writers and poets who can spot the detail and relay it to everyone around them including feelings and tone - how do they do that? Brought up in the north east of England (a real inspirational area), now in London, I have three sons who all give me so much happiness (and worry) in their own way, and they are always there. Anyway, I have penned a few very simple poems or lyrics previously and, having met an inspirational (yes you are) person from this den, I am drawn to launch them into hyperspace. Ground control to major Tom..................

Having penned Gorgeous A early in my AD life, I have now adapted it slightly and mixed it in true DJ style with another poem to create what was my wedding poem to Gorgeous A as she stood beside me (as she always has been) on 2 May 2010 - hence the new poem Gorgeous A got married

Birth Place: Jarrow,  

Accomplishments: Scraped through school when I should have done better but luckily fell into a profession as a trainee. I have a TEC and HTEC in Building Studies and did day release for my professional RICS papers, so found myself in chartered territory. Should try to do more but don't. Hey that's not strictly true, I do more I just think it's more important to do things that matter, like appreciating and thinking about others and not just work. None of us are indispensible at work so why feel as if we are, get real here Steve and look around and listen to those close to you, they are the ones that fill the heart and generate the "loved up" feeling.

Additional information

Back after a while away - life just gets in the way sometimes. I have bitten the bullet and gone gold, hope it doesn't clash with silver hair! Lost all (well the few I had on) my poems, but I will try to recover and populate again (are they really worth it?) and will attempt to add some new ones if I can find time. I still make no apologies for keeping Georgeous A on the top - my inspiration for soooo much in my life right now, like back then so thanks GA.
