I once stood in the middle of New York city watching my name go round the electronic zipper sign in Times Square and I felt pretty thrilled, but not quite as thrilled as I felt when I saw my name in the 'Examiner' for the first time.
People who read poetry, for example, like the feel, the heft and the smell of a book.
I'd got to a point where I wanted a break.
The Huddersfield that I like best is a large town with a big heart and an open mind.
If you were going to choose a way of making your way in this world and a place to start from, you might not choose poetry and you might not choose Huddersfield.
