I'm Still Here

Posted on January 15, 2017 at 12:36pm 12 Comments

Not having posted for four weeks, you'd be forgiven for thinking I'd dropped off the face of the earth, but I was just having an extended Christmas holiday and settling back into work again. I didn't feel inclined to do a retrospective of the year gone by and I've a horrible feeling that next Christmas I may not feel like doing a retrospective then. In short, I'm somewhat lacking in global optimism just now.

Brasshouse HND Christmas 2016 - 2

The Tragic Emptiness of Now

Michael Gove is one of the new Illiberal Elite who are forever moaning about the Liberal Elite who, I figure, sound very much like me. There is something clammy and unwholesome, something fungal about Gove's glossy face and…

Hi Dauvit - was Noel Gallager wearing one of your daffs at the Brit awards?

Much appreciated,

Christopher

We just had an Artist & Kids weekend,I had to teach an impromptu jewelry/enameling workshop. Remember Zoe from your class? She volunteered and brought in her pieces to show the kids. Lots of fun, however I'm covered in enamel!
