nature and war

The people are getting theirland and livelyhood split in two. I can only imagine its difficult/ impossible to pop over the wall to check the goats.

Being an artist is a way of life not to be fought or fashioned, but nurtured and tolerated.

I was working on a garden, cleaning gravel. A monotonous task except I the artist amused myself by making decorative chanels to let the water out of the driveway, where we were washing the soil out of the gravel. It didn't make the job any longer or use more water or anything like that, I don't know why I wished I had a camera with me.

I'm not sure its healthy

As my workspace becomes my bedroom, do my dreams become reality. Is it a matter of positive positive, luck or money. O for a studio large and tall I'll travel the world to find a place to stop and create for a while. Still I refuse to work in the factory or the system. If I get a holiday from my head will all become clear and paths open easily mapped out in continuity.

In my garden is a home.Made dome.I can't get the Internet reception, but I can use my mobile phone.I got my period, so I go into the tent and lie down. It feel like some ancient sacred space in here. A place where I can space out on nature.
Listening to the rain, and smelling the breeze. Watching spiders and water drops.
Now I can hear the birds not drowned out by the hum of electricity and o the Saturday traffic. All of this to numb the dull ache and pain in my womb.
Eventually I get up, go inside the house, boil a kettle, make a hot water bottle and switch on the broadband. UPLOAD.

Inside and out, I get creating. I don't make any money, but it doesn't cost me anything either, and keeps me off the streets. Consume consume con con con

IT IS A WIZE CHOICE, not always an easy one, being an artist. A curse that has to be played out in order to return as a happy factory worker. Not like I have a choice, or is it control. To give myself control and easing of emotions is me artist bit. But justice as I think I'll have to give it all up I spot 'two boys kissing.'

National tree week meets Westside, or was it wetside. More art, community art and creativity in Westside.
We planted a willow sculpture bringing more life to the area, and dressed for the weather in flippers and goggles we are determined.

That MDF painting is being transformed once again. A model wagon, some x traveller... Leads to my other lives that all join together keeping me busy pottering at the speed of an inch an hour in an artists light, not limiting, ever changing.

Two comments I got; "You're encouraging graffiti." And, " You're doing a good job." I took both to be positive!
