I have seriously neglected this website and you can put that down to workload or to the distractions of the Covid 19 Pandemic. I have reasons and excuses but the best thing now is to wake myself up and start writing again.

There isn’t a magic wand to wave. Pandemics are not new. But, our society is reeling from the loss of control, the breakdown of comfort zones and structures, the truth that we are but humans and we can never ‘own’ nature. If we learn anything, it is to value what you have in terms of relationships, friendships, your own histories, and to give as much as you ever take. To quote from Buddha ‘Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.’

And, what we do, well……we do it for our children, for your children, for future society, for humanity. Art tells the story of what it means to be human.

It has been such an honour and pleasure to be involved. Most of all, seeing members of the public standing in queues, just to see these drawings, was so very inspiring at a time when the country is so fractured and damaged. Art conquers all!

‘You see, the human brain has a unique capacity for imagination and we use this to make our visual stories which can be real or imagined. We have left our mark for thousands of years- as you young people have’.
