For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move. ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON

Quinterview 9




Meet Anglican parish priest and poet Andy Delmege in our ninth Passionate Transitory quinterview. Andy is a keen walker, and is especially interested in walking as pilgrimage and as a form of prayer. Here he's consulting the map while walking the Camino Inglés, one of the Spanish Ways of St James.

I enjoyed this interview with Andy, as well as the two poems published on TPT. From time to time, I've crossed paths with Andy in the commentary on The Solitary Walker and Turnstone. Now that I've read your interview, I'm interested in checking out Andy's blog, Pilgrimpace. I greatly admire his commitment to social justice, and I strongly believe that poetry can be put in the service of that goal.

Thank you very much George,

Andy

(and Robert - I just cycled past a Fun Fair that purported to be run by you. Is this another new venture?)

The Solitary Walker said...

Yes, George, Andy is passionately committed to pursuing social justice both in his life and in his work (which are the same).

Aha, just googled, so I see what you mean about that Birmingham Fun Fair, Andy! A bit more lucrative than poetry, i would imagine.
