ON MY MIND JUST NOW

  • The Ebb & Flow of Creativity: I miss my holiday in August when I had the time and space to be creative just for my own sake. Write pages and pages in longhand. Read. Sit on the garden wall and paint. Make a typeface based on my calligraphy. Pick sweet peas, blackberries and Victoria plums in the garden. Walk to the village. Watch The Crown together. Shared meals. Conversations. On holiday with John. I wish I could have stayed longer. 
  • Film:  Ruben Östlund’s The Square with June. 
  • Radio: Sommar with Ruben ÖstlundLisa Langseth and Fredrik Backman.
  • Weekend Project: Dinner party with my friends. Boeuf Bourguignon. A green salad with lemon dressing. Mashed potatoes. Apple pie from Normandie. Connections. Wine. Laughter. 
  • In my Kitchen: Beetroots and a big bunch of parsley from the farmers' market.
  • ReadingNeoliberalism: the idea that swallowed the world
  • Writing: Memories, dreams and thoughts. 
  • On my Mind: Louise and YES - Yorkshire Existential Society. Generative art. Crinodendron ElaeocarpaceaeAda Lovelace. Wasps. An alphabet of emotions. And mourning Jane. 
  • Scent: Green Tea and Honey Drops. Elizabeth Arden's body lotion. 
  • On my balcony: Shades of pink and purple blossoms in the breeze. Black currants. So lush and mature. Solar powered lights at night.
