'"Art is in the mind" to quote one of the poems in this heartening collection. At the heart of art is revitalisation, a re-seeing or re-sensing of the real world and our relationship with it.
Here is an anthology which braves the world, knows the "mind-field" of existence, offers again and again a sense of reseeing, revivification, rebirth. These are works which, as the late David Morris (to whom this book is dedicated) puts it in one of his very fine poems included here, "heal through the alchemy of understanding". - Foreword by Ali Smith
