Cooking a tree, radio show and book update: Art of Climbing (Trees)
It’s six years since I climbed my first tree for the book! Time certainly flies. One more year and all the cells in my body will have been swapped out, so they say. That guy who once climbed trees will be scattered to the four winds and a new guy will stand in his place – holding a published book!
I made a special tree based cooking show film broadcast for the six year anniversary occasion celebration experience of the book writing festival perseverance initiation celebration. Click here or on the image to view.
I read some ‘rough’ extracts from the book for a radio show, due to be broadcast on 26th May at 11am here bcfmradio.com. You can hear it world wide. This will be the first outing of any of this book. Ahhhhg. You can hear it afterwards too by clicking SHOWS on the station website and choose SILVERSOUND, and the date of broadcast.
From the window of my latest writing garret I hear the waves that sound like a massive dog gently licking the harbour side. I’ve been invited to be artist in residence here in Kalvåg on the west coast of Norway, and as well as writing the book I’m dreaming up ideas for the village.
There’s an amazing supermarket bin just over the road where I get most of my food, and I’ve been eating like a working class aristocrat. I could feed a few households with the good food they dump. The other day I also found two dozen roses and a pot plant to brighten up my room with.
‘Art of Climbing (Trees)’ is getting closer to being ready enough to show people for feedback and publishing contracts (with a six figure deal etc).
I should be here for another five weeks, watching the moon slowly drag the tide in and out of the village – if I don’t go mad with cabin fever. (See the film).
I hope this finds you well and thanks again for the support…
