On Being with Rocks

When I went walking in Iceland, rocks came alive. Nowhere else yet had I encountered the dynamism that I found in these glistening specimens. I walked on them, felt them, drew them and danced on them. Then, I realised that I am one or at least my bones are the rocks that form the shape [...]

A Fine Encounter

When out walking there is no end to the surprises and this painting recalls one of them. An encounter with a field of mushrooms occupied a fair chunk of mind when I walked the Camino de Santiago, because I was reading a book at the time about their potent nature and curious about the lengths [...]

life is a balancing act

Is balance an unattainable pipe dream? The search for balance between work and life is a losing proposition and a potentially destructive one.  Absolute balance is an illusion.  What appears to be a state of balance is an act of balancing, something quite different.  To long for ‘balance’ is to use the noun, but [...]
