Simon Vinkenoog 1928 – 2009

Simon Vinkenoog, the Dutch poet, writer and artist, sadly died last Sunday 12 June, in Amsterdam at the age of 80 from a brain haemorrhage.
The poet was involved with the Dutch 'Fiftiers', the writers and painters Lucebert, Karel Appel, Corneille, Hugo Claus and Remco Campert, and friends with beat poets such as Allen Ginsberg, whose work he translated.
He was also an admirer of the work of herman de vries, who had a mutual interest in the use of hallucinating drugs.
Earlier this year he wrote a text for a book of Nono Reinhold with her photographs of Machu Picchu, Peru, which I will publish with Nono Reinhold in Autumn 2009.
Simon Vinkenoog kept a blog on his site: www.simonvinkenoog.nl

Kingfisher visiting Deuchar Mill Pond, Scotland

In Memory of Hans Waanders (4 January 1951 – 24 June 2001)

Last week it was 8 years ago Hans Waanders died. Many years after Hans planted perches – for kingfishers to sit on – along a stream near Deuchar Mill in Yarrow, Scotland, this bird was spotted in this place. Helen Douglas sent me today these photographs of the kingfisher visiting last week the recently restored Deuchar Mill Pond at her house in Yarrow.

...the amazing thing is I have never seen a kingfisher here in all the 34 years. So it was quite wonderful to see this beautiful bird, hovering and dipping and flitting from tree to tree around the pond which has brought liquidity to the mill. For over 20 minutes. I felt the pond blessed...
