Anthony knows about depression because he lives in it; he understands about nature because he was brought up surrounded by it. His poetry is a culmination of them both. They sometimes merge perfectly in his body of work spanning nearly a decade, he writes mainly about his depression. Some capture the complexities of his life, some the simplistic nature of nature and some the joys he finds. Each poem reveals a little more of what he suffers through day to day, moment to moment. He handwrites in little pink notebooks, because he loves the colour pink and putting pencil to paper.

Moments of Joy – Moments of Darkness will enable the reader to journey with Anthony through his depression, as he battles his daily demons, most times it’s a losing battle, but sometimes there’s a crack of light and nature shines through to create a happy moment. As the book unfolds the reader will see how he learns about himself to combat his depression and sometimes how to find peace in the simplest of things: a cup of tea to a cloud in the sky.

Moments of Joy – Moments of Darkness are a culmination of his poems written over these years.

Antony Hollingsworth was born and raised within the countryside of North Wales where he spent his childhood playing with his friends and younger brothers on Halkyn mountain and the surrounding rivers and hills. He also helped out on the family’s small holding and spending the best part of his working life in the local authority as a road worker while struggling with depression for a number of years. He found himself writing little poems about nature and his depression on scraps of paper. Then one day, his girlfriend read them and gave him a notebook and said, write your thoughts in here. Almost a decade later, numerous notebooks were filled with poems. He has decided to share with the world what he has gone through, with poems about his daily struggles and moments of joy and happiness. Nowadays, when his depression permits him, he writes poetry and spends his time walking up mountains and within nature to help him reflect on life.
