Scotland







Fell in love with this place and the people on the last tour. It is the land of my ancestors and felt strangely familiar though i had never been before. Cannot wait to return.

Stoke On Trent





Woke to the morning fog of the English countryside. I almost expected to see a dragon raise it's head from out of the mist.

"Art is central to all our lives, not just the better-off and educated. Every child ever born, they all want to hear and to tell stories, to sing, to make music, to act out little dramas, to paint pictures, to make sculptures. This is born in and we breed it out. And then, when we have bred it out, we say that art is elitest, and at the same time we either fetishize it with high prices, jargon and inaccessibility. Or we ignore it altogether. The truth is, artist or not, we are all born on the creative continuum and that is a heritage and a birthright of all our lives."
- Jeanette Winterson

Cargoes


A section of the poem "Cargoes" by John Masefield. It reads even better when spoken with a Tom Waits voice.

Newcastle


the train rumbled itself into being
took me further still from you
passed river, brick and spire
and carts of fish and fruit
one hundred hungry nights
fueled the longing of a fool
for the soft touch of a woman
in a world both kind and cruel
