Thanks for joining me!

This blog is linked to the blog site of the Bath Writers and Artists Group and it is primarily but not exclusively about sharing with this Group to which I am a new friend and associate.  I am an artist and novice poet with an interest in the use of creative energy to promote self recognition of our shared identity as relational and spiritual beings and also of our uniqueness. My background is in engineering followed by education, guidance and therapy work and my artwork and poetry is also informed by extensive experience of working with individuals and groups facing social disadvantage and prejudice. Settings I have worked in include drug and alcohol treatment centres and prisons, where I have had the privilege of meeting some remarkable teachers. Welcome to my blog. – Pete Smith
