  • On this miserable rainy morning, I am catching the 10.30 bus to Dungannon where I will meet the Poetry in Motion Coordinator of the Community Arts Partnership in Belfast.

    To meet my prospective employer for the first time I want to look smart but not to formal, approachable but not scruffy, casual but efficient.

    Wish me luck.

    Oh, and it was too cloudy last night to see the Perseid meteor shower.

    I haven't got a full length mirror but this is the jacket I will be wearing.
