A lot of activity in Groningen and in Bristol. I feel the buzz of excitement on both sides. This afternoon I was talking to Marian (fellow artist in my studio, painter and also going to Bristol) about 'the artistic visual hunger with which we approach our surroundings'. What? We both recognised how you never get enough looking at things, absorbing them. So much so that even driving becomes a hazardus occupuation. Later I walked to the shops. I saw a waste - container covered in spray paint with the words 'What is your truth'?" Well, at this instance: I do still have to finish my working week - and the truth is that I feel it is too much. I want to indulge in the preparations ! In letting my mind wander.
