Welcome to the website of HENRY NORMAL

Hello, I’ve been posting information on Facebook for the last two years and have finally got round to organising a website. The site contains much of the same information and material as my Facebook site but I’m aware not everyone does Facebook and that the information there is often hard to access other than by labouriously scrolling down. The information here is far better organised and more extensive.

There’s a contact page if you’d like to email me. Do let me know your thoughts on the site and any suggestions.

SITTING WITH COLIN ORCHARD AT STANMER PARK

The wind is sharpest in the shadows
Plenty of blue to make a pair of jeans

We face a skyline of treetops
lincoln green offset with copper beech

A man wields a bit of plastic
to help him throw his dog's ball further

Daisies decorate the grass
like icing sugar on peppermint

A boy and girl punish a plastic globe
whilst their mother carries a bag for life

Rain machines overhead roll south
to reconnect with salt

A lightweight buggy stutters over open ground
a plastic bottle tucked in with its child

Sunlight is reaching us through
a different mixture than it used to

Colin has a solid wooden bench
with a fine metal plaque

'Much loved husband
and father'

I can't think of five greater words
to mark a man

We watch the industry of nature
turn carbon dioxide into oxygen

A woman helps her husband
move his wheelchair up the slope

'The Reason I Jump' by Naoki Nigashida is the best book on Autism I have ever read. His follow up book ' Fall down seven times get up eight' is equally brilliant. ... See MoreSee Less
