As children, we knew playing footy in the backyard came with inherent risks like balls going over the fence but we did it anyway, in the hope the balls were thrown back over the fence by a kind neighbour. Then we grew up and risks became things we thought about more seriously.
Looking at Joel Meyerowitz after seeing this lecture
Listening to Jamiroquai, Fatboy Slim and Moby because my foot just wants to tap sometimes…
Perhaps it’s the cold weather but lately I have wanted nothing more than an afternoon nap every day.
It was good to have a short time out, though I confess to spending very little of it lazing about it was still more relaxing than work.
Looked at work by Manal AlDowayan, Nicoline Patricia Malina and Thandiwe Muriu
Listening to Dan Sultan
Taking a very short but much needed break…
Looked at some surrealist inspired work by Izumi Miyazaki
Listening to Juniore

Looked at Jérôme Courenq
Listening to Chester Bennington and Linkin Park and thinking about what might have been. I’m reminded of a quote from the movie Bladerunner
“The light the burns twice as bright burns half as long – and you have burned so very brighly”
