Spotlight On Writers
- Where, do you hail from?
Firstly, thank you for choosing to put the spotlight on me, though I do feel like the proverbial rabbit in the headlights. This poetry malarky is relatively new to me and I am delighted that my words are being enjoyed.
I hail from the West Coast of Scotland in the county of Argyll. A picturesque part of the world which is steeped in history, high rugged mountains, and deep lochs. That sounds like an advert for a Visit Scotland brochure but it's all true.
- What is the greatest thing about the place you call home?
It is my sanctuary. It's where my family are, and where my memories are made.
- What turns you on creatively?
My surroundings, nature, emotions, life, loss, and love and of course presently COVID-19.
- What is your favorite word, and can you use it in a poetic sentence?
Scottish words like bairn, braes, and banter. Wandering is a good word - physical and mental.
Rounded bellies of ewes in lamb
wandering pheasants that avoided the guns
- What is your pet peeve?
Bad manners, bullying, and bullshit. Life is short. Live and let live.
- What defines Caroline Gauld?
I cannot say exactly what defines me. It's variable and very subtle. I have no label. Like the Scottish weather, I am everchanging.
