So, my blog has finally been launched, a champagne bottle has been ceremoniously smashed on the bow and the empty, inelegant hull has slipped sideways into the water, to a round of applause from the small crowd of onlookers. All it requires now is “fitting out”!
Which to abandon the ship analogy means it needs a bit of layout tweaking and above all some posts!
I have been sifting through a vast pile of subjects all night – they rush me like approaching waves, crash into my brain and swirl about in little half-formed sentences, foam up into the semblance of paragraphs and then recede leaving a few glistening words on the sand.
I could write about etching; I have spent a good 40(ish) years and wasted a couple of tons of copper on this branch of printmaking, Maybe screenprinting? The materials have changed dramatically since I used to print posters in a small squat in Kings Cross whereas I still etch using much the same methods as Rembrandt.
Certainly painting and art although my thoughts on these change by the minute.
Guitar? for a few years I wrote satirical songs and annoyed the loyal pubs and clubs with my “witty” warblings
Or cycling, longbow, archery, swimming, food, computer games, politics, history, economics, films, TV, computers … Life, the universe and everything?
I am essentially a serial obsessive, much to the annoyance of my friends and family and I have no idea where this blog will wander off to!
