Intuitively I have a preference for writing alongside images. I’m not fussy about the images, nor are they required to relate to the text. Though somehow, a connection – by virtue of being placed alongside – is implied. The images are not illustrative but are what images can legitimately be – decorative.
This image I like – by my husband and artist Papa Essel – because it is called ‘breaking new ground’.
Of course the fear is – if I write everyday – a great deal of it will be rubbish – but the Australian professor has already covered that ground – vomit ‘write everyday and at the end of it – look back at what you have written and it will be like searching through the vomit – you will find (and I know this to be true) some beautiful themses, ideas words and phrases that will shine and make you feel proud, boastful, surprised and secure.
