Yesman and the Wednesday Art Picnic

About 5 or 6 weeks ago I read Yesman by Danny Wallace. I had already seen the movie and read the wiki page but something still drew me to it. I read it, totally unconvinced at first. 

Then there was a turning point. A few chapters in and I was hooked. Why? Because I started to realise that I had been saying no. ALOT! It wasn’t always in the form of a no, it was more in the form of closedness to new opportunities. 

I also realised that there were people in my life who were saying no to me a lot too. I needed to change both these things. 

After reading this book I started actively changing my life, with a simple yes. 

Why am I telling you all this, well I have decided to rename my blog to the Wednesday Art Picnic! (More exciting info to come!) 

Have a beautiful Wednesday! 

Lots of love

Welcome to the Wednesday of tired eyes

I’m so totally exhausted at the moment. Having been able to dodge the winter with barely a sniffle I’m defiantly finding spring a little bit more tiring.

Last weekend I presented at the manchester Pecha Kucha night for the International Women’s Week programme across the city.

My talk was all about a letter I’ve written to my daughter. Well, my future daughter. I’ll be posting a film version of that letter soon. :)

The first thing, I guess, I would want to say to her is WELCOME! Welcome to this beautiful, unpredictable world of lines and borders…

Goodnight spiders

Love ce xxx

I found you on the ground and I don’t know what you are. You live on a stick but you didn’t always live there. Where are you from?

You look both sharp and friendly. I really like your stripes. You remind me of sleeping snail or something one might use to fix cars.

Anyway, goodbye for now maybe we’ll meet again and you can tell me more.

Happy Friday

Love

Moon over mountain
Or
Man growling

It’s up to you because it’s Wednesday.

The Phoenix

I like it how sometimes you feel like you have everything. You have climbed the mountain, the hill, or even just the stairs. Then, like the phoenix, everything turns to ash.  

Sometimes destruction allows for beautiful things to grow. This is a piece of street art by the Isar in Munich, a city which knows what is to be a phoenix only to well. 

Have a wonderful day. 

Yours
