I'll be asking 'how are you feeling today?' at the Bookmarket, The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh on Tuesday 29th March between 4 - 9pm. Come and tell me.

an inward lens where natural light can't reach.
I suppose it's a comfort of sorts.
I should have stayed in that cavern until nightfall,
when I could have quietly crept back dodging reflections
and exposure to the harsh March day.
Instead though, I looked hard into the looking glass
and was saddened at what faced me.
I've not been drinking tea or gazing out of the studio window this past month but on the workshop treadmill from Glasgow to Bolton. It's time to stop and take stock, refill the glue jars, clean the brushes, count the needles and replenish the thread. I've shown 146 people the benefits of creating their own books in the last month which I think gives me legitimate reason to be quiet for a while.
