in the shade of a tree,
in the shade of an axe.

I give poetry readings in private houses to groups of eight or more. Currently I don't charge for this but will accept donations and/or petrol money if the private house reading is outside the Melbourne metropolitan area.
To date I have given private house readings in Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia, Tasmania and China.
My family and I – Helen, our son Walter and our dog Buzz (black miniature poodle – housetrained) are interested in house-swaps in Australia and overseas and are interested in billeting visitors to Melbourne and being billeted ourselves when we go on poetry reading tours in Australia and overseas.
