Here is a charming little paragraph from Paul Muldoon - his 'Author's Statement':
'I'm afraid I can't come up with anything wonderfully witty and wise to say about my work, except to wish that it displayed a shade more wit or wisdom.
The truth is that I hardly ever read it, let alone theorise on it. I'm much less interested in what I've done, which almost certainly amounts to very little, than with what I might do which will almost certainly not amount to much more.
I'll keep trying, nonetheless.'

I have just received news that I am one of three winners of the West Cork Chamber Music Composition Competition (www.westcorkmusic.ie) with my string quartet 'Third Epistle to Timothy' (see Third Epistle to Timothy for more info)!! Amazing! The piece will be workshopped in Cork on the 27th June and premiered during the Festival later in the week. Keep an eye on the Performances section of the website for more info.
