House of Lords

This is the sweater my Dad had in high school from his residence house. He graduated from RJC in 1946.  

Now it is framed for my son.

M is for .....

Monkey. For a boy who likes "m" things.

I didn't want the monkey to look quite so disgruntled.

Sketchbook: Swarms - Transformation

My general preoccupation this year is "Can I change my mind?" Earlier in the year I did the brain transformations. Then I shifted to birds in flight without a good reason for why that contributes to the mind-changing question. Fortunately, I heard a rebroadcast of the Next Chapter (CBC Radio 1) from 2012 with Patrick Lane. Shelagh Rogers commented on the frequent recurrence of birds in his poetry. I did not write down the quote exactly, but managed to scribble down the idea he expressed that birds symbolize transformation: from the ground to the air. So, I conclude that I am still on track.
