Treading Lightly

Original mixed media piece used to create bronze mould, hand painted

“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing      would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?” ~ Lewis Carroll

Childhood as fun & adventurous, resurrects adults’ yearnings of childhood - a time to explore, create and learn - a time of multiple possibilities.

Sunlight warming closed eyelids. The sound of the breeze in the tall grass, a creased copy of The Wind in The Willows nearby, the pages fluttering. The smell of sun cream freshly cut grass and salt and vinegar. Afternoons stretching on and on for ever. Dreamtime.

Happiest of days, the smallest details ~ memories and emotions, feel eternally entwined.
