An Irish legend tells of Cenn Faelad, who lost his ‘brain of forgetting’ when his skull was split open in battle by a blow to the head from a sword. He developed a perfect memory, and wrote everything down.
The new literary journal, Brain of Forgetting, has published their inaugural issue, titled “Stones,” to celebrate the legend.
My poem, “Sapphire Stone,” appears in the inaugural issue.
This may or may not qualify me as an Irish poet.
Either way, I’m excited to share the news.
When my brother was in Scotland, he was part of a local musical group that published a CD. He said I inspired a small lyric in a song they wrote. I have been curious if that makes me a Scotish lyricist. 🙂
Totally does. Add it to your resume.
