Its been an overwhelming week domestically here and try as I might notice things, there wasn’t much art in my life. The closest I got to ‘high culture’ was overhearing some high school students practising Shakespeare in the library on Wednesday night.
I have been heavily involved in my study, avoiding housework, musing about fashion and my lack sense in that regard and adding to my 1960s pyrex collection. I tried to extrapolate some art from that but even for me its stretching it, although maybe this could slip in, as a similar one with 4(!) Fridas has just been made for me.

I have also been playing with Twitter and been more active on Facebook. To be honest its part of the procrastination but my thoughts on these are:
Twitter: I am trying to keep my tweets art based and not talk about daily innanities. Best thing – following Stephen Fry.
Facebook: This IS where some of the details of my daily boring life gets noted. If you have friended me there expecting artspeak – its not so likely. You will probably hear about my cold and my ‘new’ ironing board. Best thing – keeping up with distant friends.
The whole social networking/twitter/blogging thing reminds me of the song “Beautiful Cosmos” by Kathryn Williams (which I couldn’t find on Youtube – but listen to a snippet here)
“You are the centre of your little world and I am of mine.
Now and again we meet for tea, we’re two of a kind.
This is our universe, cups of tea.
We have a beautiful cosmos, you and me.
We have a beautiful cosmos.”
