One of the songs I’m looking to get recorded soon is this song about the first woman in space: Valentina Tereshkova.

If you’d like to get involved and make a donation to the charity MIND – a mental health support charity in England and Wales, I am collecting donations to send to them as part of this “Beat the January Blues” effort, (as well as donating £1 per print copy sold of my next book – ‘Love Poems for people who don’t like being in love II’ – coming later this year -).
I will let you know how much I’ve raised by the beginning of February, and I’ll send MIND the amount I’ve made so far.
If you’d like to also support my work, you can find some suitably lovely rewards for doing so on Patreon here.
