i've taken to drawing small pictures in recent months - inspired by drawing sessions with Pheobe....when i'm away it is such a joy to draw pictures to send to Pheobe or to show her when I get back....above are some from the trip to italy....Pheobe has just set off for a holiday too & has taken her drawing pens & sketch books with her....can't wait to see what she comes up with....



a couple more photographs from my trip to italy....

just back from Italy....
the same airport in the UK & to Venice again - with all the memories of our summer holiday Pheobe - the hotel that gave us ice cubes galore, the beach, the boats on the lagoon....I fly over Venice, land & then take the trains to Cividale, then a car to Topolo, where I am shown to the house I have all to myself for the next 10 days....on a mountain side, surrounded by forest, music drifting around the houses (most long since left empty)....I open my case & the sand from my sandals is a link to you Pheobe - from our days at the beach last week....the bed lined reminds me of the yellow & brown floral pattern on one from my childhood....
....the heat is intense here during the day - I rest & make my recordings in the cooler evening & night....today though I went in search of a river - found one - prepared to record underwater - slipped on a wet rock - grazed my arm in several places - but I still recorded for a few minutes before heading back to find anti-septic....
