Where Are You From? Six months later, we used it as a writing assignment in a class taught by my friend Elizabeth Hunter at the Campbell Folk School in North Carolina. The poem lends itself to imitation and makes a wonderful exercise of exploration in belonging. The prompts have a way of drawing out memories of the smells of attics and bottom-drawer keepsakes; the faces of long-departed kin, the sound of their voices you still hold some deep place in memory.

It has to be said, that when I was younger there were a hell of a lot more interesting derelict buildings around. The ironic thing is that abandoned buildings feel alive to me.
They are involved in a beautiful natural process that the act of preservation will, by its nature, halt and kill. Of course my opinion is an unfairly idealised and overly romantic one. The argument for preserving old buildings is a very strong one that I wholeheartedly support myself. I knew instantly that I had to go there and see it for myself.
Every day we had a gruelling trek through deep snow to reach the monument. Ownership of the monument was ceded to the state and consequently it was left to ruin.
Today, this incredible derelict building stands as an iconic monument to an abandoned ideology. A terrible snow storm surrounded the monument for the first 4 days we spent on the mountain. During our daily visits to the site, I did not once get to see this fantastic structure from a distance.
Striding towards it through deep powder, it would only emerge from the dense white fog just a matter of metres away. Finally, on the 5th day of our stay the weather began to change.
As the weather started to clear up, the monument began to reveal itself It was always my plan to try and fly a microlight over the Balkan mountains to try and get a shot of Buzludzha from the air. However, on his last day before leaving we decided to risk it even though the weather was still unpredictable.
Flying through clouds in a microlight is not a good idea. We were up in the air for a good hour but came back with nothing more than some pretty shots of the tops of the clouds. My focusing finger went completely numb after just 10 minutes of flying even with my gloves on. Then, at the eleventh hour, I pleaded with the pilot to take me back up and this time we decided to fly in low under the cloud.
Needless to say, it was a quick flight… there and back in half and hour with 2 dangerously windy circumnavigations of the monument… probably the scariest 30 minutes of my recent life.
Between the frost bitten fingers and frozen eyelids, I just about managed to get some snaps. Fabricated in Russia, these stars were three times larger than their counterparts at the Kremlin. The next morning I got up promptly at first light and trekked up to the monument in the most glorious dawn weather possible.
