Toxic/ normal relationships, who decides which is what? Any thoughts? Suggestions? Stories? Examples? Reactions?

The bird calls out what sounds like "Where's my sister?" in Arabic. It does it persistently , in a sad, plaintive manner that gave me the creeps. On the walk back from school in Baghdad, I'd hear a whole flock of them asking " Where's my sister?". It sounded so sad. In my world birds have insight and a sacred knowledge that we humans are not privy to.

Moleskine Diary Pages 2011

I can't seem to get away from the theme of familial dysfunction. Is there a family out there that does function? Maybe families group dynamics are meant to be unpleasant enough to force us out of the nest to find our own way, to eventually create our own pile of dysfunction and repeat the cycle.

I overheard this sad conversation on the Hastings to Brighton train recently. It took place between two young men who were obviously comparing notes on women. The depressing part is that it could have taken place 50 years ago without sounding out of place. The moral of the piece? Avoid wearing red lipstick? No chance. I don't know what the bloody moral is, my duty is to report and present.

Do you that feeling where you are expending all your time and energy seeking something when deep down you know exactly where to find it or what you have to do to get it. Sometimes it is easier striving!

Moleskine Diary pages Sep 2011

As my mother was dying she kept describing flames shooting out of everyone's heads., I couldn't reassure her as I didn't know what the hell she was seeing. But the visual image has stayed with me. Has anyone else heard of this?

She was the river of fear that kept on giving.

Moleskine Diary number 38, A new beginning

The first page of Moleskine number 38, I still get excited by a new sketchbook, the sense that this could be it! The moment where I feel satisfied, realistically I know that won't happen but the journey towards that goal keeps me going. Is there anything more obnoxious that an artist who is in love with his work? Ugh!
