I agree with William

Love sought is good, but given unsought, is better. -William Shakespeare

the sections..

... yesterday I read a photographer's interview in which he pointed out that only 20% of his time is spent taking photographs, the rest on administration and research... Well. it is much the same with making art work. At the moment I am in one of those uncomfortable transition periods where projects are coming along, but where there is no sign of their realization yet. So at the moment satisfaction levels are very low, but inspiration is beginning to ferment, a little more sugar and ideas should rise ready to become solid and tangible..

One problem is that I have produced so little in the past 6 months that now the internal need to leap and explode into action has grown disproportionate to time, finances and energy available.

I will make one more list and throw the coals into the fires and get some of these projects going. The urgency is only increasing daily.

The hunger for making art.
Relationships should nourish one's energy resources not deplete them, should they not.
Well I am in the final throes of making my way back up from the depths of life's muddles, this week sees 2 more deadlines for projects that I really want to be involved in and then I can begin to make direct plans for the "A Dungbeetle and Sisyphus". And get my camera out for "Idioms" and advertise for Artist Assistants for May, and plan my performance for Cologne.

Come back in a while, I will edit this entry and it will be more eloquent.

In the meantime I recommend that you take a look at: http://cressidakocienski.blogspot.com/
That will give you inspiration and things to think about.

Happy Easter

my procrastination activities taste good...

Rollercoasting, skating and cycling... with integrity.

Now this was a roller coaster of a fortnight!



Interviews for postgraduate programs at both the Royal College and at Goldsmiths, art worries, stage fright in relation to the invitation to make work for St. Luke's / Bombed out church in Liverpool.

Thinking, thinking, and rethinking, finally being met with an epiphany whilst in the bath last night. "If the mountain isn't coming to me then I will just go to the mountain" Or something like that...

So I shall let you in, into my cryptic thinking in the next days. In the meantime I will try and formulate it all and edit it into a manageable size.

The bad news: the RCA sent me a rejection letter on deceptively hight quality stationery.
The enormous, massive relief: Golsmiths invited me unconditionally to come and study on their Masters Program from this autumn.

Unconditionally has to be my favorite word, if I would be offered same terms in romance then life would be complete.
Unconditionally is just such a character and life affirming attitude. And most gratefully received.

Enjoy your Easter Holidays, with or without beautifully hand colored eggs. Unfortunately boiled eggs make me nauseous.. What a shame.
Good Day and Good Easter. Aim high...

(Perhaps I need to curtail my life-coaching advices.. Before I turn into Eckhart Toll, or some other such similar lifestyle Guru. But I can't help myself: Don't be lazy!)

.. empires underneath tables..

...children underneath tables should definitely be left alone.
I always thought that.

one I wrote earlier...

.. you must know that the Muse is most easily caught in the small hours of the night, then there are negotiations to hold before she will submit her charms and leave us with some inspiration. She is getting moody these days, perhaps the long working hours no longer suit her...

habitats


... the distance between lovers is not always the measure of miles between their geographical locations.. the distance between lovers is not explained by different cultural heritage.. the difference of countries is nothing much more than the difference there always is inherent between all coupled units.

I am trying to say that place is only an outward signifier of inward geography.
