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

CE

.O

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

KEEPING UP WITH THE RESOLUTIONS…the new path

Erm, so, errr, yer the resolutions, what happened to them? 

Well one of my resolutions was to blog everyday. Just like the dieter who vows never to eat anything but lettuce I too starved myself of possibility. 

Sometimes blogging everyday is totally necessary but most of the time it’s just about making art and sharing. 

So, now my new resolution is to blog regularly. Again. That doesn’t mean everyday but instead quality blogs at least twice a week. (Yey!) 

I make my art as a love letter to you. 

Love, 

Yours,

I have so much to tell you…

There is a city in the bark where thoughts can play. I was there today. I dreamt of all that was built before and the things that could be built in the future. Then of course I woke up to the now.

The now when I am here and you are not. I would like to ask you a hundred things and tell you a hundred more.

Willst du mit mir zum Rindentraum kommen?

Love

day 19: a (not so) lazy sunday according to…. Candace Couse
What feels like many a month ago I had the pleasure of being on an artistic residency with the amazingly talented visual artist , Candace Couse. Today I sent her this….
Q: Dear Candace, on my blog I’m featuring amazing people’s lazy Sundays and I would love it if you could tell me about you lazy Sunday?
A: You have crazy ideas, and I like these ideas. I would be happy to be featured on your blog.

The real trouble is that there is no such thing as a perfect and lazy Sunday for me. Perfect Sunday, yes, but I love a wee bit o’adventure! Today Haven and I went to Port Dalhousie with my darling doggie Charlie to have a gander at one of Canada’s great lakes churning with large hunks of ice. It was treacherous and  thrilling and we had to make several life or death decisions. This Sunday was also a learning day as we were curious as to why there seemed to be so many Canadian geese anymore that did not migrate south during our frigid Canadian weather (see Polar Vortex) anymore. We consulted google and learnt that these renegade geese were the many generations of offspring from a few domesticated geese. Apparently because the first generation were never taught to, all subsequent generations lost the ability to migrate.
 
We also learnt that the human male is in peril. The Y chromosome (whom you may know from such collaborations as the XY human male sex) has slowly been degrading by losing or shedding DNA base pairs since it first made it’s appearance about 80 million years ago. It will be totally gone at some point. Evidently this process happens and has happened already to some frogs, people I know, etc.http://www.scienceagogo.com/news/20090616231446data_trunc_sys.shtml
