A photo of me by the fantastic Rocksusto taken in August 2007. I prepared the canvas behind especially for the photo and it is still white today - it appeared in a dream of Rocksusto's one night and so I made it - maybe it is waiting for someone else to dream the picture that will appear on it. It's sitting in the hallway and I walk past it with quiet anticipation every day. I also have 6 beautiful old wooden window shutters in my room and the hallway. And in the patio of a friend's house an old dark wooden roller blind is awaiting me. Under the bed: the tubes of oil and watercolours. On the desk beside me: jars of brushes. In a portfolio: sheets of watercolour paper.

"On the outside a person may seem contented and free, but their inner landscape may be a secret prison. Why do so many of us reduce and domesticate our one journey through this universe? Why do we long for the invisible walls to keep us in and keep mystery out? ... we usually keep away from freedom. We find it awkward and disturbing. Freedom challenges us to awaken and realize all the possibilities that sleep in the clay of our hearts."

eternal echoes, John O'Donohue
