where does it go

where on earth does the time go every day - guess it doesn't help getting up at 9.30 nope it surely does not. and then if i go near the computer it guzzles the equivalent of an old long wheel base Landrover climbing up the alps. luckily i get kicked off by my son.
anyway some recent completes.

the ancients - Persians

the ancients - Minoans

publications and a day on the beach

i've got some poetry coming out in a series of anthologies with other writers from Elimae magazine. my work is in the first anthology - Triple no1 - with fiction by Brandon Hobson and a Graphic Novella by Cooper Renner. Really very happy about this. Ravenna Press is an independent book publisher - support these people please.
Indian summer hanging in here like no ones business as Perry and i ramble barefoot on the beach on the south side of the island. love winters over that way - not that winter means anything as yet here - no rain to speak of, cold is a forgotten sentiment - who knows what winter even feels like these days... ooops thats asking for trouble. well heres some images - needless to say stone mania on that beach.

Amorphous potentia

A magazine I used to submit to is ending, it's a shame it was one of the best.
Then there's some stuff I've been working on.

Robinson Crusoe

being at home without the Internet is an experience, not like you'd miss it on holiday - but the habit of having it - well, I can't say I missed it that much strangely enough as I'm on a roll and the lack of distraction is/was very pleasant.
Now the mac's on holiday for a new hard drive - mmmm these things meant to test us.
So I've been busy very focused busy so I haven't really taken any shots of anything apart from the general chaos that builds up on my work table at times like these -

Studio taking shape

It's all taken longer than I thought, but it's great to reengage with things and be in one space.
Now I can finally work on getting my etsy shop back on track :)))
