The Night Sea Journey by Adrian Scott - 24 May

The Night Sea Journey is Adrian's third collection of poetry. 

It records and reflects on a journey of physical and mental breakdown and recovery - a true Night Sea Journey in the words of Jung and others. 

Adrian says: "I was at sea without a compass. I had to find stars to navigate by. 

"Writing felt like placing my hand on the tiller - 'only my pen knew its way’ ". 

There are echoes of the mystic Dark Night of the Soul within - but the poetry is of the common or garden variety of experience. It deals with things we all go through in the course of an average life.

Some poems are inspired by other Night Sea Journeys - those of Francis of Assisi and Vincent Van Gogh. 

This evening will provide opportunity to hear the poems, work with them in a kind and lovely atmosphere and get a copy of the book.
