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!

Hi Sophie! I am in love with the fabulous responses you have received for your postcards. All the artists have really been so generous and creative. I hope you realize my painting Seed Talk is dedicated to you and is inspired by your seed studies and commitments.
Best to you and congratulations on all your activities!!!

Hi Sophie.
So glad you are having a well deserved slow week. Love that cup of tea also! Is that a lizard twisted up on the side there too or are my eyes deceiving me?
Re the postcards...you know I had completely forgotten about the whole *prize* side of it! And thinking about it now I'm sorry I don't envy you at all. What a decision. But you know, for me, being part of the *whole* and seeing all that beautiful and individual work threaded together into your space there was blessing enough, as I'm sure it would be for everyone else as well. xx Leanne

Dear Sophie,

I am very surprised that things are slow for you, as I feel you are always in high gear, but after the show, it is good that you are getting a little rest.

I love the tea cup idea with a plant, Now I just need to find the right used tea cup and plate at a second hand store.

Congratulations for having surpassed the one hundred mark of followers.

Warmest regards from Northern California,
Egmont

Leanne,
glad you feel as I do... Now I am even thinking of creating a blog for the postcards because some are still keen to send them... it is about the seeds.... most importantly we are bringing attention to our seed heritage and it gives a place for individual reflection on this.
as for the cup... wonderful isn't it... and if you visit the blog you will see that this is a prop for jewellery... hence the lizard... the most ingenious images from a Londoner making and selling interesting jewellery.!
thanks for your thought on this,
Sophie xx

Hi Egmont,
lovely to hear from you. Appreciated getting your wonderful message the morning it opened... It was a big week -requiring 2 days just to get everything back home and tie up some loose knots.
Really needed to rest like you wold not believe... well you would!
Today I had plenty to do but - joy of joys - a dear friend who had a baby 7 weeks ago (and for one reason or another we never had connected) surprised me with a visit at lunchtime and all tasks fell away and I spent hours with the babe tucked under my shoulder and chatting.... my whole mood shifted around this precious little one and there was nothing to do but watch and sigh in wonder and pass the time peacefully ! That brought such a deep quality of rest...
Oh yes...isnt that exciting over the 100 mark....
hope you find a cup..utterly charming indeed!
have a lovely weekend Egmont... talk soon,
Sophie
