So here we are, 01 February 2020, bigotry and ignorance seem to have “won”. Let’s hope those responsible enjoy their “victory” and not too many people suffer from the consequences. Many glimpses of light needed to even attempt to keep my spirits up.
Sketchbook, exploring burnt sienna in its many shades and tones
A weekend away in the woods
Seeing fantastic 300yr old trees
Beautiful mediaeval floors, and new kneelers based on the floor tiles
Progress on the drum - an image from a children’s colouring book, coloured, then manipulated in imaging software, printed and glued to the drum. Some smaller seahorses to be added at some point, but this drum is now an active part of Extinction Rebellion.
- “The Binding”, a terrific novel, based on the possibility of having our bad memories removed
- “How to Lose a Country” read and weep, and then take action
- “The Man With No Face” a reissue, but the parts about the UK in / out of Europe still so pertinent
- “A Most Wanted Man”, excellent novel, showing the consequences of the supposed “war on terror"
