from WHOLE-HEARTEDNESS by Margaret Tait

It doesn't do to be half in, half-out. 
A definite declaration is needed

Is a state of mind.
It could be achieved by anyone
With a mind to it.

Brendan's Book of drawings. Review

The book was commissioned by Boiled Egg (with hand stitching).
It's my kind of book.
The drawings take you into a place where mysterious connections occur between parasols, priapic figures, cats, lightbulbs. Or maybe they take you somewhere else.
They were all done the winter before last ,  sometimes before the sun had begun it's arc over Stove Bay or during candlelit dinner parties.
They have a wintery feeling and wander freely wherever they want to.
It's an edition of 200 and easy to find in cyberspace.
