    You do it brilliantly, mick. i’ve been thinking about a beautiful form…i once waited in a train station in arezzo in central italy (umbria) for my gf to arrive on a train from assisi after she’d flown back to me from amsterdam. she didn’t expect me to be there. i watched the carriages tumble passed as the train rolled into the station, sitting on a chair from mussolini’s time, and as the windows rode by me i saw a flicker of her kissing some man. really kissing. sort of finished a bad run of outs for me. i didn’t say anything to her as we drove home. we split a year or so later, and i still hadn’t mentioned it. i felt pretty stupid for my silence. it didn’t earn me anything.

    that memory sits in the forefront of my mind when i look at your fuckin beautiful shot. i can’t ruin it by writing a poem about that. give me time, mick. i will find it.
    we’ve all gotta keep punching.

    Thanks Andrew. I found the above Tshirt in Richmond and had to have it. Pleased and sad at the same time I evoked an image and a memory that caused pain, but art is about inspiration and effort to me. All good art tends to come from someone’s pain or sacrifice it seems. Whilst you are somewhere less distracted by the world at large, do the hard yards emotionally and be ready for the world when the time comes.
    More writing from you is what’s needed.
