100 Days of Podoku This project will see me writing a new podoku every day for 100 days. And what exactly is a podoku? It's a poem written as a sudoku, a way of taking nine words and changing their order in a orderly yet random way. It creates surprises and new perspectives for the poet and the reader alike.


Day 65

Back in Edinburgh - not such a bad place to be, after all. There is an exhibition currently on show here - "Beyond Caravaggio" - it is wonderful. And, in this exhibition, for the first time in my life, I saw a painting created by one of my great heroes - Artemisia Gentileschi - I stood for a long time in front of that picture. I'm not going to lie, I did shed a tear or two.
