Okay, I just have to say that today was near perfect. My lovely neighbour and friend took the kids early so I could catch the train into town with my beloved, then go and listen to Paul Muldoon the Irish poet. Between the railway station and the poet I found the perfect pair of boots for this winter.
Muldoon was excellent (notes to follow next week). Then I bumped into Hinemoana and talked poetry over a cuppa before heading off to hear a panel discussion about “Art & Text” with Paula Green, John Reynolds and Leigh Davis. The discussions were thought provoking and both sessions had me thinking about how the creation of all kinds of art can’t really happen without being in conversation with artists / writers of the past and present. I do find my peers vital. Speaking of which we had another great Hub session last night and began the altered books.
The modern creative process: make; photograph; blog. Hahaha
