I just came here to do my shopping today - I needed some chicken, eggs and tea bags - and this just happened. It’s been wonderful. I had no idea what to expect but I just love poetry so I visited the emergency poet and now I’ve had my lunch here so I could come to the reading too. First of all Deb had me lie down on a bed which was very nice. She asked me some questions about what I was going through and why I might need emergency treatment. She really put me in the mood and then gave me poetry about letting go and loving myself. I shall read them many times I’ve no doubt. I still haven’t managed to do my shopping yet and I’ve been here two hours.
