This Town (aaaah, aaaah), Is Coming Like A Ghost Town
So here it is. I think that I am happy with it. It is based on a Japanese woodcut but it is actually a drawing. Please try and come if you are around, there will be wine and canapes. I am hoping that the date will stay the same but there is some serious organizing to do before then.
I am feeling a little deflated today as Swanage is a ghost town and I was hoping that there would be loads of people visiting as it is technically the Easter holidays.
I wish that you could add music to your blog as all the ones that I have written that are titled with lyrics of songs could really brighten up your day. And mine!
Although I have to wonder how Christ's death is a moveable feast whilst his birth is December 25th every single year. Even though I am educated enough to know that Christmas Day is in fact a pagan feast that we have made into a religious event. Or just a materialistic debt ridden affair where what you get is more important than the reason you are getting it.
Wow, I really am turning into a grumpy old woman. I only half mean it, but it does make you think. Can you imagine if all holidays were as flexible. I personally think bank holiday Wednesday could be a good idea. We could have additional holidays too. We could celebrate Happy Half A Year Day in June, it could be preceded by Happy Half Year Day Eve. Big summer parties would be great as opposed to freezing ones at New Year.
We could also have Conception Day it could be a pre birthday celebration at any point during the month you were conceived.
I am sure that I could find many more things we could celebrate if I could be bothered.
I have a personal request to add to my blog. Could whoever stole the sun please return it to the sky? I think it was a little irresponsible to think that no-one would notice. We all have and now we are more than ready for its return. Thank you in anticipation of your co-operation.
I haven't been able to find a pencil the same shade of blue to finish my drawing. I'm very disappointed about that.
There will be a talk by the artist Andrew Piesley about his work on Saturday 23rd April from 6.00 - 7.00 there will be drinks served and it promises to be a good evening. So please come along it would be great to see you.
Have a great Friday night!
