Not enough words to fill the spaces

There dont seem to be enough words to fill twitter,facebook and personal blogs and have left-overs for writing a book or two.However this is the way it must be done in these logorrhoea filled, modern times.

It is a good thing I make art as well, to fill the gaps in the spectrum.

I’ve been into words and ‘odd stuff’ as long as I can remember, although mainstream society put more than a few dampers on my creative expressions; guess I just wasn’t fitting into the spaces correctly, and was too loud to fall between the gaps.

Many years later I have the mainstream, middle-aged mantle of job and mortgage, but also seemed to have found a certain personal freedom where I can write what I want and make the sculptures I like.

I have had to sacrifice relationships for this, and my financial situation is a constant anxiety, but generally, it feels worth it.

It is, of course, possible, that the oddness I encapsulated 30 odd years ago is now pretty tame?

So, as a tame and not necessarily tamed old lady, I will introduce myself.

I’ll leave tidbits and remnants of me here so you can construct your own construct of my construct.

Let the circus begin!

    “I’ve the soul of a teenage boy” – I hope you’re keeping it in a jar (but don’t forget to poke holes in the lid so it can breathe!).
    Really delighted about your new blog. Your work is definitely not tame – no way, not never :O)

    Taming the wild self just enough to integrate socially just enough to have a positive impact on the world around you and share your profound insights. Success.
