Stay Lucid - Echo of Light is a collection of poems, songs and stories written by Hamish Lancaster between 2012 and 2020. Hamish bundles words together on a regular basis. Sometimes he tries throwing these bundles into a crowded room to see what happens. He was a National Poetry Slam State Finalist in 2014 in Queensland, Australia. Every few years he experiences cases of psychosis, mostly this just results in more writing about inexplicable experiences. Much of his writing is a result of being an avid participant of the local slam poetry scene in Brisbane, and many pieces in this collection are written to be performed.
