I’m very pleased with myself because I’m managing to pick up some poems by now-obscure Ghanaian writers to share. I love ‘The Serving Girl’ by Acquah Laluah, which is in An African Treasury (selected by Langston Hughes), which I managed to buy on eBay after looking for a copy for years. Looking good. I don’t know what target to set for myself in terms of number of poems to collect, but I guess if I remain on the internet I can make it a lifelong project. I will soon put up my favouFACT logorite poem by my Uncle Frank (Francis Ernest Kobina Parkes), ‘African Heaven’, which also appears in the Treasury. This is, after all, Ghana’s 50th anniversary year so I might as well get busy with it. My other blog is marching on according to my moods and I’ve just started a Litcast called FACT (image to the left), which is good fun too. The whole podcast experiment thing has been good for me – although I seem to have take the longest break in the world after my 14th episode. I promise to make it up by recording a ‘Chronic’ one soon. See you out there somewhere…
