(making me possibly the only person on the planet who learned to swim out of a book). But, taking advantage of my job - I worked in the Upstart Crow Coffee Shop/Book Shop in Long Beach, California - I did leaf through The Artist's Way in idle moments, and took from what I fancied from it.
I fancied artist's dates. I still do.
Experience has taught me that the kids' mid-term means that I will get no work done. It is pointless to even try. When the Arts Council decides to endow me with plenty, I'll book camps or pay a minder, but until then I've decided to 'accept the things I cannot change'. No work will get done next week, but there's nothing stopping us going on artist's dates (they're supposed to be solo expeditions, but oh well...). Ideas so far:
- the Ór (Gold) exhibition at the National Museum
- the mine in Castlecomer
- the Little Museum of Dublin
- the Japanese Gardens
