Biography of Hugh Mitchell

I was born in England but my parents were Irish, so I don't have any strong sense of national identity. Living and working in many different countries has added to the sense of being an outsider, but has brought many rewards. In the last few years I have lived in Istanbul, the Czech Republic, Bahrain and (currently) the Netherlands. Where to next?

The Teacher Reflects

Fiddling in deep pockets for lost keys
my fingers smudged with grease
again I bind my rusty bike
with rusty chain and rusty lock -
the tedium of dropping gloves
defines my life, instead of love.

In future time when I shall wait
shiny hands folded where the old folks sit
