|"This is my favourite planet
because it's the one with you on it"
The name "My Favourite Planet" was inspired by the song of that
name by the British musician Hugh Featherstone. In the notes to
his CD Negotiations and Lovesongs Hugh wrote:
"Despite all the drawbacks - meagre size, funny money, mosquitoes,
antique toasters, limited off-world opportunities and primitive
showers - this still remains one of my favourite planets."
Hugh has contributed a selection of poetry, Bird under water.
The first poems appeared on My Favourite Planet Blogs from
He also wrote the article Unwrapping Earth 2.0 at UnBoXit.Com
for the My Favourite Planet Guide to Planet Earth.
