[i'm not a fan of this piece. it is because i wanted to do something different with it. As often happens, the possibilities of the tools overwhelm the workman and he becomes blind to purpose. It's a good first step that i see that, though, yes? and there is always the opportunity to re-see, re-mix. hi, jozee.]

hi christopher! let your mummy look. i just went to a wonderful talk by the author, Tom Doty he was speaking about his memoirs and the idea that most of us close parts off to our parents.

he mentioned that he thought letting our parents see us as whole people was a gift we could give to them.

unfortunately when he sent a copy of his manuscript to his father for authorization before publishing , he never got a response, never heard from his father again.

what am i saying? live your life, it's awkward and difficult to be an artist anyway.

let the people who want to be included, be included.

of course my parents are both dead but maybe they see what i do now, more than ever.
hi mum!

As if she didn't already like you enough jozee! she's likely now cheering at your suggestion. tehe.

I think that i would be cool with that--except i'm concerned that it will force limitations on what comes out in that space. His memoirs were already done. His ability to write was probably facilitated by the freedom associated with writing out of view. I'm still 'writing' here, jozee.

Yes, it's difficult. I don't get to see her as often as i wish to.

Good thing about our relationship, though. There is no manuscript i could send her that would induce the response Doty received.

Hello, raindog. I had something much sleeker and minimalist, wabi sabi in mind. The mood was to be much more serene. thanks for asking :)
