Thanks Tim for posting this - with links! What a great and generous ambassador for poetry you are. ( Using this to announce my part, I shall link to your blog on my blog; make sense?)

I feel honoured that you've called me "a great and generous ambassador for poetry" - though I'm sure there are others who deserve the honour more.

I'm now aiming to take the next step and become an ambassador plenipotentiary - even though I'm not entirely sure what that is, it sure sounds good!
