new moleskine pages again
most of my work seems to be tightly bound up with familial relationships, the ties that shape us and make us who we are. I have been thinking about that a lot lately, going off on flights of fancy imagining what and who I'd be if I had different parents. Maybe even the worst parents can offer one thing, and that is an example of how not to raise children. It is such a universal subject that is relevant to just about everyone. Loise Bourgeois maintained until her death at the ripe old age of ninety nine, that her artistic driving force was her relationship with her father, and the affect his behaviour had on the family. It loomed so large in her life that she never felt the need to explore other feelings.
