Reinvention


A few years ago I created a year long project, dedicating each month to a single colour. Beginning in January with red/purple - that gorgeous magenta I keep falling back into - I cycled my way month by month through the primary/secondary/tertiary colours, ending the year in Red. Ever since I've had the desire to follow up … Continue reading Reinvention

derailed logic


You know me well enough by now - you know not to expect a simple train of logic, don't you? When I found this anonymous model, the leopardskin, that sultry seductive look, and all the glamour of the 1940's 'do -- and I don't remember the exact connecting train of thought that same next -- I just straight away … Continue reading derailed logic

Then when that week rolls … Continue reading Note to Self: 17/52

The title is open to interpretation but it got me thinking about the saying What the caterpillar calls the end, the rest of the world calls a butterfly. So with my fav … Continue reading New Beginnings

Shadow Monkeys (8/52 cont/d)


Week eight of 2015: a busy page that's warranted 2 posts... And that's without any mention of the butterflies. Or Steve Jobs. But that's all for another day... The thing I wanted to tell you about now is monkey related: Since I spent a weekend in conversation with my daemons, they've been magicking themselves into … Continue reading Shadow Monkeys (8/52 cont/d)
