Performance | Reading

On Friday 2nd September I shall do a not entirely "random" reading at the gallery at around 13:00.

If you would like to be there please contact the gallery on 029 20473373

Circumstances of and beyond my body, require a change to the planned event - but as most people don't know what that was maybe I should keep quiet about it!

Flighty Whispers With Feathers

“At a recent work shop on sound symbolism in Atlanta, Georgia, he reported that "wh" words associated with words that describe the production of noises such as "whisper", "whine" or "whirr", and those beginning with "fl" that tend to signal movement in the air, such as "fly" or "flail", also enjoyed this fast track in the brain's processing. Bergen concludes that these may all be forms of sound symbolism.”
