Self portrait

On a hot day in the garden I used my iPad as a mirror and sketched a self portrait on paper …

It was a hot day and I wanted to be outside relaxing in the fresh air, but I’ve always got to be doing something! I think that’s how many of us are nowadays. Sometimes you have to force yourself to do nothing at all. That’s probably where Mindfulness comes in handy. I didn’t succeed in doing nothing on this hot day. I got my pencil and paper out instead. I thought a self portrait might be something I could manage, but didn’t have a mirror I could stand on the table. So I got my iPad out and turned the camera around to selfie mode. The screen wasn’t easy to see because the light outside was so bright… er well that’s my excuse anyway.

In 2008 I attended a couple of creative writing courses. Then I joined a writing group and wrote some more. Eventually I ended up with a lot of pieces of work scattered around in books and folders, as well as floating around the Internet. I bought a domain name and decided a blog would be a nice place to put my writing. This is my creative outlet and I hope you find something here you like.

Tell me whatcha think!
