Finished a map of Norway a while ago. Not sure where my maps are taking me anymore, they're at a stand still right now, think they might be over. It's over. For now at least. I want to create a calmness, a mindfulness, a sense that each second counts and exists and is worth something and recorded whether it be through a big speech, a whisper, a wink, a tear or a simple mark of a pen.
Went to Southampton for the weekend to see The Cardinals or The Cardinals feat. Ryan Adams or Ryan Adams and the Cardinals. I love his spontaneity, his songs are never finished, open-ending always open to re-interpretation.
Southampton was really cool, great parks, you can walk round the old city walls, and get a ferry over to the Isle of Wight. It's amazing how much control our own minds have, or we have over our own minds? Mind over matter always. If you're in a good place mentally any place can seem amazing, but just as equally if you're in a bad place any place can seem suffocating or like hell.
Stop. Slow down.
Keep calm and carry on, with life, art, this blog, trying to communicate.
Life is all but a series of moments, be mindful in every moment.
