In this eclectic mixture of sonnets, Toddy Hoare draws on his personal knowledge and experiences of life, Christianity, the arts and the beauty of nature. He takes us on a journey through Greek mythology to the Bible, from Yorkshire to Oxford to Marrakech, from nature to love and family. There are life experiences from dog walks to war, from art to architecture, from mindfulness to falling out. There are many
moods and insights portrayed with something for every taste and mood.
Toddy Hoare trained as a sculptor and was freelance for three years until recession in the mid-1970s made such a living impossible so joined the 15/19th King’s Royal Hussars to pay his debts, serving in Northern Ireland. Ordination followed via The Missions to Seamen in Holland and Wycliffe Hall, Oxford. After a curacy in Guisborough, he was the curate-in-charge of the Hillside Parishes in North Yorkshire on the Moors near Thirsk for twenty-five years. When his wife, Liz, got a post she could not refuse teaching spiritual formation at Wycliffe Hall Theological College, he retired to concentrate on sculpture once more and exhibit in London. He took up the pen to write poetry whose muse had been largely dormant since art school. He has four children, eight grandchildren, a Labrador, and as much enjoyment of Oxford as there had been of Yorkshire.
