As a child, I remember sitting in the back yard with a lined A4 School Exercise book and pencil and telling my father I was going to be a writer when I grew up as I frantically scribbled down ideas that danced in my head. I remembered the all the stories I read and retold them to my younger sisters. Over the years I drifted away and then back to putting my thoughts into words. The dance between my imagination and the actual process of writing wax and waned as the demands of daily life pulled me in different directions. Over the last few years I have once again returned to laying down into the light the words that dance in my head. more »

Comments about Helen Gaudin
The Sound Of Silence
Silence makes the loudest sound
It presses heavily on my eardrum
Inside and out
A soundless barrier echoes
Confining my mind
The sound of silence sinks deeply
To weigh upon my spirit
Bearing it down
Like the weight of a thousand raindrops
On the head of a flower
Somewhere in the silence
I float between body and mind
Reaching for a connection
To break the resounding silence
And re-enter the physical world
