Big day today picking up the exhibition prints for my show ‘The Long View’ at the Pah Homestead, TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre, which opens at the end of May. The prints include some 1200 x 841mm numbers that are kind of thrilling – like your life has just been supersized.

Also looked at the first test proofs for the book at that will accompany the show, and received the draft essay from the lovely Greg O’Brien.

One of those days when everything arrives!

I’m kind of chuffed to have my poem At Moeraki featured in this handsome anthology of New Zealand writing about birds, just out from the Vintage imprint of Penguin Random House (ed Elisabeth Easther).
