Launched May 1st, 2009 with a tentative start... this blog evolved into a space to bring things I'm curious about or fascinated with whilst adapting to life in a new city, a new direction with my work and in the online realm. Early on postings were frequent and wide-ranging in focus. Attention slowly spread to new online engagements as ideas developed and formats trialled to extend those ideas. However, this blog has always remained at the centre of all that followed ...the conversations, journeys and glimpses into creative worlds generated here have long enriched my days beyond all imagining and I return always to pick up the thread with gratitude for the experience and for those who've passed through, perhaps joined up or stopped to converse!

No wonder you were thinking about swimming! Have a great time - we look forward to hearing all about it! And it must feel great leaving behind a couple good weeks of painting and a show. Obviously you deserve this now!

Thank you Mlle Paradis...
I'm not sure about water temps over there... I'm spending some time near Nelson which is a wonderful area I've heard much about... beautiful national parks nearby - places to kayak.. but how cold will the ocean be at this time of the year?....
I could spend months in NZ - even live there.
I'm reminded that I didn't take those photos last week of where I was staying as I talked with you about...such wonderful houses...and hilly walks.... I really spent all the time painting and suddenly the stay was over!
Well it may be quiet for the next 2 weeks here...
I shall look forward to visiting you on my return!

Thanks Nicola,
I suddenly got quite carried away with excitement about this trip late monday night... hence the post. It was triggered when I came across the image of this small abstract which I posted here and that brought all the memories of the 2005 trip flooding back and then flowed the anticipation of more inspiration to come.
cheers,
S
