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!

a little bit of heaven...



My idea of wonderful would be to discover this place as I strolled along a city street on a hot day...




and to find that after gazing at all the marvellous potted plants that look rather like a vertical garden



you could enter a front door which at first you didn't really notice so busy were your eyes gazing at everything



stepping inside the peace and cool air would hit you instantly and you would be seduced to sit and order a delicious lunch from this cafe/flower shop in downtown Tokyo.






Read about this at INHABITAT ... who wants to come with?

also on a botanical theme...with a slight whimsical bent...





from a post i did last year....read more here!


and a really clever artist working metal into lace... click here!
