Quite arbitrary list, all songs i’ve seen performed live, which is why rhapsody and lullaby didn’t make the cut. I saw the Banshees five times between 1978 – 84. every time was awesome, some of my best experiences at gigs.

thanks for reading, and listening,

WASHING UP

IMG_3848

I was just washing up and then remembered how Marie would come up behind me and kiss the back of my neck… and instead of feeling sad I smiled. And thought thanks for loving me so tenderly. And now I’m smiling, because I remembered how she used to lift one leg when she kissed me in greeting, like a fifties housewife.

MY STUDIO IS NO MORE

I HAD A YEAR IN MY PERFECT STUDIO SPACE THANKS TO MARIE’S PATIENCE AND ENCOURAGEMENT.

A FOND FAREWELL. HEART-BROKEN AGAIN. BUT THE ONLY WAY I CAN MOVE IS TO MAKE THE SPACE NOT FEEL LIKE HOME.

TEN YEARS SHE ENCOURAGED ME NOW ALL I HAVE IS HEART FULL OF TEARS…

SOUNDS LIKE A COUNTRY SONG

WITH HEAVY HEART THIS IS THE LAST PAINTING I SHALL DO UNTIL I MOVE HOUSE.

This week I wanted to prove to myself that I could do enough paintings to make it a viable means of earning a living. I’ve started and finished ten paintings in the last week, which should provide some income, even if I sell them at a ridiculously low price.

This is what Marie would want me to do with the time I have left in this pissant swamp, until I can be back by her side, in what ever reality she now exists in.

I have given notice to my landlords that I will be moving out. Given the amount of work this move will entail, I won’t be having the luxury of painting any more until I move out.

I feel desperately unhappy about having to move to my Parent’s house, but it the best way of maximising the use I get out of the money she has left me… well, Half of the money was our savings. Moving to my Parent’s will mean that I have to re-enter society, and spend at least some part of the day with other people. I know this will be good for me, but I will be kicking and screaming all the way none the less. I’m going to miss being surrounded by my things… but we have to follow the brummie motto : Forward!

Life goes on, and on, an doesn’t it Just!

I will blog when I have time.

Take care all my stalwarts,

You have been very supportive.

live in love
