There isn't much to say, LOL.  
I'm 45, single (again) and live in Plymouth, England.
I've had all sorts of jobs, from admin to boat-building to gardening, but, at the moment, I work for the local theatre - cleaning windows and sweeping up. At least the people are all nice and we get plenty of free or cheap tickets : ) 
My favourite poets are Shakespeare, Wordsworth and Robert Frost. I especially love Shakespeare's Sonnet 29.
I love writing and don't think I could live without it.

I'm the bald guy at the very back of the photo, by the way - 'Jack Horner' in the corner, LOL


Thank you

I just wanted to say a big thank you to Linda-Marie and PD for my Premium Membership (Linda-Marie's prize, which she kindly passed to me).

Since joining PS, I've learnt a lot about poetry and I've also met some lovely people, so thank you all : )

    I am toon used to be a theatre man for almost a decade. Jack, and congratulations on the wins. It reminds me visiting theatres in nineties of London, France's National theatre where Moliere performed and Dublin too.

    I would move into a theater if I could. I love live shows, with real, on stage actors. I miss my European cultural activities as I used tolive in the capital full of theaters. Welcome to the blog life!

    Heya Jack. So nice of Linda-Marie to pass her PM prize onto you....and of course, so nice of P.D. to endorse the prize to begin with~! This is a great thing to do, to help promote the Soup community. Found it interesting that you have had a job, boat building. Was this constructing smaller boats, or large industry-work?

    Dear Jack, congratulations on becoming a premium member! I'm glad you're enjoying the interaction with other poets here. I can see the photo, so I guess you managed to load it just fine. As you know, we both love Shakespeare! Wishing you many happy days on Poetry Soup. Love, Carolyn

    Congratulations on your premium membership, Jack. I'm glad Linda gave hers to you. How cool you get good tickets to the theater! I didn't know how much you loved sonnets. I can see why you are a happy person just from your choice of your favorite Shakespeare sonnet!
