I went to an exhibition yesterday.

In typical form, I approached the task of writing the review back to front.

Today, due to my ostensible need to verify and justify each and every word I write, I am not writing.

I am researching; seeking, digging, poking, unearthing all manner of info, items and opinions, endlessly clicking and link after link after link.

Thank you for reading.

Now, back to the writing. Probably.

Review to follow. Eventually.

Then it expanded to fit other situations, circumstances and scenarios. Next thing I know Iā€™m seeing human targets everywhere. Me, you, ...

Deborah Caulfield: A month of self portraits

Earlier this year, Deborah Caulfield set herself a challenge. She had an old sketch pad lying around. It had 39 pages. The task was to fill the sketchbook with a new self-portrait every day for 39 days. The rules: The sketch/note book must be one that I already own ā€“ no new purchases. The sketchbook must ...
