I have been told that a word about copyright is well-advised so please note the following.

The content in the blog is original, including the photographs. I own the copyright for what I have written as well as for the photographs.

Where there are links to other websites, such as RSS links and “stickies”, the copyright belongs to their respective owners and they appear here in good faith according to their respective terms and conditions. Where I have quoted authors in full, such as some of the poems, it is in the belief, and on the understanding, that their work is now in the public domain e.g. John Clare.

I do not mind if you wish to quote from or refer to any of my blog entries but please acknowledge their source. Fair comment is, of course, allowed. Otherwise, please do not copy them. Please do not copy any of the photographs without my express permission.

Under no circumstances do I give permission for any content to be reproduced for commercial gain nor for either illegal or immoral purposes.
