Green Linnet

I’ve just placed Green Linnet, as an eBook, with Amazon. It’s a collection of short stories and poems, humorous and sober. I wanted it to be free, but they insist on a minimum price of 77 pennies or 99 cents.

  1. I will spread the word for you.

    I would be interested to read the novel by Stephen Parr. How lovely to be going for a writing week in the spring.

    I so very much desire to follow a Buddhist inspired lifestyle; it makes so much sense to me. But I seem to fall at the smallest hurdle and throw it all out of the window so easily. But I think that has something to do with my long standing (and difficult to break free from) personality of desiring instant gratification. I know something like this will probably take longer than my present forever, but I want it now and I am such a damn perfectionist and beat myself up when I fall.

    If you have any words of advice for me on this I would be really grateful for your input. I have mentioned this in the last stanza of my recent ” Not Resolutions” post on WP . It is a light hearted
    poem but I am really serious about how I can so easily walk in and out of what I really want.


  2. Harry,

    I think I might be able to manage 77p – I have bought it with one click!

    You could make your fortune from this!!! Or may e not! 🙂 looking forward o reading it

    Just to change the subject, do you remember the poster on fb that you shared of the carousel and the horses becoming alive and running free? think you described it as “the whole of Buddhism in one image” – well I fell in love with it. I wanted the print but never got round to looking for it but I showed it to my daughter just as a by the way thing and she presented me with it framed for Xmas and I am now sitting opposite it and looking at it every day!! 🙂



    • Well done, Christine – you are the first to download it. Will there be others?
      I do recall the image, but the description was by Ananda (Stephen Parr); he is a Buddhist poet but has not published on Amazon (though he does have a novel – Error Message). I will be with him for a writing week in Harlech in the Spring.
      The image can be seen as the breaking free of the Wheel of Life onto the positive spiral that leads to liberation – but you probably know that.
      It’s lovely to learn that you now have it framed.
