Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

Becoming Obsessed!

so my WTJ and I are having a break from each other, and he is hanging out with the local birds.....

Plan is that he will be away for a week, unless he gets homesick and wants to come back inside. The weather forecast isnt great so I hope he has taken his waterproofs and thermals!     

 “The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, 
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, 
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, 
but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles 
exploding like spiders across the stars 
in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop 
and everybody goes "Awww!”  

 Jack Kerouac 
 (American Poet and Novelist. Leader and spokesman of the Beat movement. 1922-1969)


  1. Nicks, you are really embracing this challenge, I applaud you. I have done no more to my WTJ for days....!

  2. I love that quotation, and it is fun watching the progression of your book!

  3. mmmm I think maybe Christmas was a bit of a strain for you love, put your feet up and have a chocy biscuit. P.S You could have give your WTJ an umbrella, poor soul, he is going to get wet!

  4. Totally Annette x

  5. Is the madness spreading?? Must be if we keep reading your blog!!! lol

    'But I don’t want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked.
    'Oh, you can’t help that,' said the Cat. 'We’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.'
    'How do you know I’m mad?' said Alice.
    'You must be,” said the Cat. 'or you wouldn’t have come here.'”

  6. oooh cool - might be taking mine out for a drive tomorrow!

    I find it hard to tell you
    'Cos I find it hard to take
    When people run in circles
    It's a very, very
    Mad World

  8. I wrecked my journal last year, and my 10 year old son is in the process of wrecking his. Fab isn't it?
