This book features the poems, thoughts and short tales of writers Langley Porter and Angelica Donellan. In their hearts, they are Children with the purest, most innocent friendship ever formed. Yet because they live in a world full of Grown Ups who judge wrongly that such a bond cannot exist, they visit the Friendship Tree as often as they can, climbing high up into its strong boughs, keeping it alive with the Letters, Poems, Thoughts and Tales. We have created this book, so that we can share words that speak of pure friendship – words that must not be judged or used for any purpose other than the purest of reasons. These words are of two writers, shared with the world, for every man, woman and child to have as their own. To understand them fully, you must also take time to read ‘The Little Prince’ by Antoine de Saint Exupery. By opening the Door to The Friendship Tree, the writers hope to Inspire all Grown Ups to leave their judgements at the door. May All Who Enter one day plant their own Friendship Trees, to nourish and cherish them and the lifetime of Awe and Wonder that such a friendship can bring. The Friends – inspired deeply by their love of the Ocean and the novel ‘The Little Prince’ – welcome to you enter their Friendship Tree with Kindness and an Open Heart. So … How did you get here? Did you stumble in, accidentally on purpose? However you arrived, we are glad you came and hope you enjoy the magnificent view from the Beautiful Friendship Tree. We encourage you to ‘Like’ and ‘Share’ The Friendship Tree, to plant new seeds, and to watch the wave of Innocent Child-Like Friendship sweep across the world like the ocean sweeps gently across the sandy floor.
Having taken photographs for the last 28 years, and in 2008 I ventured back to my country of birth inspired by the great photographer, the late Sir Simon Marsden. His moody, ghostly black and white images, and tales of life as it continues after death, which has always fascinated me lead to my book Britain In Ruins, all shot in infra red. I have also completed a book on Underwater photography that sums up my respect for sea creatures and life in general. I continue with both these subjects and other photographic styles which is only limited by ones imagination, as well as teaching photography and image editing to those that desire to learn more about this great medium. Both my photographic books are available as hard cover or ebooks. Under the pen name Langley Porter, I have also begun writing stories and poems that speak from the child within. The first installment of that can be also found here as a paperback and ebook.
