I was born illiterate; just like an iPhone without a SIM card. Teachers, priests and peer groups contributed greatly towards altering my state of ignorance, also trying to mould me in their image. I experimented with existentialism, communism, atheism, became a stoic, and finally a dedicated successful capitalist who idolises Leonard Cohen and Richard Dawkins. Poetry is incidental, a mere reflection of my life experiences, but perhaps the only worthwhile legacy to my children.
George Georgallis was born in Cyprus. He spent some of his childhood years at school in East London. As a foreign exchange student, he attended high school in Wisconsin, USA. He also served in the Greek Cypriot National Guard before later attending university in London where he qualified and practiced as a solicitor for over 25 years. Having returned to Cyprus he shares his time between enjoying the cosmopolitan city of Limassol and his cherry orchard in the Troodos Mountains, visiting London on a frequent basis.
