Mellow⁠

Feeling a little more mellow after two weeks of frantic activity at the Abstract Rhythm and Blue Notes exhibition in Whitstable.⁠

When friendship fills your heart⁠
Even the rain ⁠
Is joyful⁠

⁠
A joyous few days in Whitstable for the opening of our Abstract Rhythm and Blue notes exhibition (@arbn_exhibition) at the Horsebridge Arts Centre. @thehorsebridge 
⁠
This exhibition is the culmination of a year long inspirational artist development programme with Doug Chinnery (@doug_chinnery) and Valda Bailey (@valdab), which was conducted over Zoom during the pandemic and involved artists from around the globe.⁠
⁠
Coming together to hang the exhibition was the first time many of us had met each other in person - an emotional and very special time for us all.⁠
⁠
I was also staying with an old friend from University days (@deesphotographykent) so extra special.⁠
⁠
The weather was atrocious - but somehow it didn't matter.⁠
⁠
Heading back there for next weekend - the exhibition is on until 28th November. ⁠

Pier Lace⁠
---------⁠
⁠
⁠
had a lovely few hours in Brighton today - it's almost impossible not to photograph the West Pier when you are there, looking so resplendent in its decay.  Anyway this is my take on it as it slowly becomes one with the sea around it.⁠

Alchemy⁠

By some unseen magic⁠
green is transmuted⁠
to gold⁠
⁠
Burnished and glowing⁠
dressed in finery⁠
for the last dance.⁠

leaves prepare ⁠

The spirit flies⁠
----------------⁠
⁠
Amid pomp and ceremony⁠
Grief for one is grief for all⁠
A symbol in death as in life⁠
We pin our own sorrows to her,⁠
Tears brim unbidden on lashes⁠
As we remember those lost,⁠
Each in our own quiet place ⁠
Of stillness.⁠
⁠
A passing gift⁠
A final act of service.⁠
We grasp memories knowing ⁠
In those silent minutes⁠
A spirit now free⁠
Must fly.⁠
⁠
