I read a great deal in the literature of the past. This journal takes the form of a commonplace book: a place where I post short passages of prose or poetry that have recently caught my attention or floated to the forefront of my mind.

It is not private, and you are welcome to add me to your friends list if you like.

Why do I call it ‘The leaves that hung but never grew’? There is a clue here.
