Last Saturday I attended the book launch of John McGlades book “Thoughts Have Wings,”published by Birdfish Books .
John is an old friend from way back and is something of a renaissance man. He is an artist, designer,and an intellectual as well as being a motorbike rider and an avid hang glider. And an all round good bloke to boot.
Since developing motor neurone disease he has completed his PHD (The Ephinomenal in Architecture and a Creative Sequence). He also began to write poetry, which brings us to “Thoughts Have Wings”.
I was quite gratified that he had included ” The Sculptor “, a poem that he had shown me some time ago. It is always revealing to see your work reflected in a different art form, a chance to see your work as others see it.
