Making a new start? – ‘begin the song exactly where you are’

So it’s September, not the beginning of the year but somehow, having started a new school year in September right through our formative years, we still seem to find ourselves starting something new this time of year. I was fortunate enough to hear Malcolm Guite read a selection of his poems at the Greenbelt Arts festival this weekend and I just love the sentiment in his poem ‘The Singing bowl’ ‘begin the song exactly where you are’

Scroll down to the poem and, if you want hear Malcolm read it, click on the title.Do take the time to read or listen to the whole thing, it will be one minute and seven seconds well spent!
