a life of music
Where would we be without music? A life without music is unimaginable.
Plato said “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”
a life of poetry
Nietzsche had a good point: “Poets are shameless with their experiences: they exploit them.”
Phil’s poetry is a marvellous mixture of lived experience and flights of fancy, spanning a lifetime of taking chances, questioning the system and trying to live life his own way.
