Shelf Life... a romantic board walk for a married writing couple!

Shelf Life… a romantic board walk for a married writing couple!

Perhaps it is time for a new definition for the idiom ‘on the shelf’. If this is my shelf life, may it long live beyond its expiry date! Joseph Robert and I were browsing at the Southbank poetry library last week (as we often do) and we noticed that our most recent publications were side by side on display. It just so happened that Ariadne’s Thread under ‘A’ and Decanto on the next shelf filed under ‘D’ worked out to be side by side next to each other. Somebody (a customer, no doubt) had misfiled Graffiti in the ‘A’ section on the shelf below Ariadne’s Thread. Usually such things bother me, but in this case, I saw it as a prime opportunity for a photo… or rather, Joseph did!
