I allow one piece of text or film to lead me to another: this slightly laborious serendipitous method has its frustrations but somewhere between Romeo & Juliet and Robert Fords fascination with Jesse James (as depicted in the film The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford ) are all the great love stories and even greater escapism. From tiny Hidden islands to great loves.....
So after going around the houses a little bit via Merry land, Love stories will probably take up the rest of my time on the residency. Hooray!
(I still like MerryLand though)
In the mean time I am making some more cut outs, naming tiny Islands to escape to and starting a new painting project which will work its way into The Collector Zine: Issue 3.
Story Of The Eye - Georgres Bataille

All is well with me and the kitty-cat, I am having a devil of a time stabilising her on her new insulin but we are keeping each other company rather nicely. The new Florence & The Machine album Ceremonials is out. I am a fan. Its on a loop. The kitty-Cat doesnt mind.
