Am of consciousness

July 15, 2013

This section is all about me.  It may be emotional or just thoughts, or what I have done and why.   Hence the title as it is evocative of Descartes “I think therefore I am”.


For instance, I am still grieving over the loss of my amazing mother, who passed away 25th Feb this year.  So I have decided to try and write a book, with puppets of the characters, and illustrate it myself.  It is still in the planning stages.  It is about Childhood in WWII.  She told us about this and came into school twice to tell the children, who were studying this in History.  I might put it on this blog, though not in this section.  I hope it will be part of the healing process.


Ream of consciousness

In this section I want to write about things of general interest but that are not really brainwaves, so some things are just normal.


I can’t think of anything at the moment.

Cream of consciousness

July 15, 2013

In this section these are all my really best ideas, brainwaves, or things that could work really well.  I have just set up my own company this year, called Puppet Works and resurrected my puppet clown costume, and even been seen in public in it.

What really pleased me was that I went on the Lord Mayor’s Procession this year and it was such fun.  A clown who attends Sweet Arts group (for Art Therapy) came with me.  She had not felt confident enough to be in public for quite a while, until now.   The bosses at Sweet Arts were so pleased with me and so was Clown.  Two children came also, who are traumatised.  So, even though I couldn’t obtain the publicity I wanted, it was all in good cause, they enjoyed it so much.

The theme was two-fold, Clowns and Superheros.  Norman came as Batman and also had a Batman glove puppet.  Child A came as the Incredible Hulk, and he had a Hulk puppet.  Child B came as Spiderman and he had a Spiderman puppet.  It was so cool – really we should have won, I was gutted not to even be placed….

Scream of Consciousness

November 1, 2009

Scream of Consciousness is my preferred title right now.

I am still practising using this blog.  I have had a host of ideas in my head (all my life!) like most people and never done anything with them – the odd bit of art or two, and that’s it.  If I keep this up, it’s a way of saving some of them.

Also I need to express my emotions somehow – AAAGGGHHH!!! before I do something I shouldn’t.  Positive action is the way forward…..Words are Weapons! Yeh!!
