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!

just quickly....



... as you might know I have been so busy of late I put the 'gone fishing' sign on the door so to speak at my last post!  Well yes...the fish are jumping... but not so much that I cant pop in here tonight and leave a quick hello. I found something I saved recently...and how ever did i track this I could not say... 


... from Jules at Joyful Studio a little something to savour from Louise Bourgeois.


"Art is a guarantee of sanity. That is the most important thing I have said." 
--Louise Bourgeois












and from Ocean of mind:


"A writer - and, I believe, generally all persons - must think that whatever happens to him or her is a resource. All things have been given to us for a purpose, and an artist must feel this more intensely. All that happens to us, including our humiliations, our misfortunes, our embarrassments, all is given to us as raw material, as clay, so that we may shape our art."


— Jorge Luis Borges
