Episode 13 - A Moment in Each Day

Mini Poemcast - There is a certain kind of vow - from Arriving in Magic

The Music is calledPriveghiati si va Rugati byAngela Gheorghiu, the Romanian National Choir "Madrigal-Marin Constantin", the London Philharmonic Orchestra & Ion Marin. The title means watch and pray. This is often chanted on Holy Thursday after the service and remembers Jesus in the garden of gethsemane and his words to the his friends as they struggled to stay awake.

Mini Poemcast - There is a certain kind of vow - from Arriving in Magic

Mini Poemcast - Sedition - from A Night Sea Journey

The second Poemcast, a short period of poetic reverie, for as William Blake says"There is a Moment in each Day that Satan cannot find Nor can his Watch Fiends find it, but the Industrious find This Moment & it multiply. & when it once is found It renovates every Moment of the Day if rightly placed."(Milton, Plate 35:42-3) In this difficult and frighteningly uncertain time we have not only to face our outer fears but our inner ones too. This inner journey introduces us to parts of ourselves that we are unfamiliar with and need to be negotiated with, to be dialogued with, to have secret talks with. Then we will be better fitted to face this changing world as it unfolds with resilience and vulnerability. Go well in these more isolated and solitary times. Adrian (the anxious poet). (the Music is from Baraka)

Mini Poemcast - Falling - from Arriving in Magic

This is a new initiative for the Anxious Poet's Podcast - Poemcasts, a short sharing of one poem as a way of pausing in a busy day and opening ourselves up to another economy. To the slow work of reverie, of musing and absorption. This is the poem Falling from the book Arriving in Magic, to be found on Amazon or at www.adriangrscott.com The Music is by a good friend of mine Graham Nash (not of Crosby Stills Nash and Young vintage, rather a lovely musician from Sheffield.

Episode Eleven - The Season of the Holly King

Episode Ten - Dylan Thomas - entering the round Zion of the water bead.

In this podcast Adrian is working with the poetry of Dylan Thomas the welsh prophet who lived in the middle part of the 20th Century. Using his own and Dylan's poetry he explores the ways in which we wrestle with the dark and the light, with life and death, with innocence and experience. The pain we experience that creates many of our mental health issues is faced, both head on and avoided with addiction in Dylan's tempestuous life. This allows us to explore these issues through the lyrical and mysterious lines of this enigmatic poet.
