Egghead – in medias res

This afternoon it is time for my Egghead again.
This former hard hat will be sitting in a café, working on her book. I love that! Finding silence in the midst of city’s huzzle and buzzle..

Ship of the Desert

like a peninsula tied to my fixed existence
because this ship of the desert
is leaving for the woods again
where it ought to live from its own savanna once more

And there I am….packing…again!
Making everything ready for our trip to somewhere.
Will I find my home this time? …I do hope so..

footnote: The poem and photograph I made in 2009, but it holds perfect relevance for me again now..


Sometimes you let fear take over and things suddenly look rickety and weak.. You struggle.. The overwhelming illusion of gravity pulling you down.

Flower of Mould

After not doing the dishes for two weeks, back in 2002, I found this beautiful blanket of mould in my kitchen.

The image I took/made of it, I used as an inspiration for a jacquard woven blanket in 2007.

Mould being a metaphor for when things ending or dying,
always something new comes alive. Transformation.

This was followed by a drawing/collage I made in 2010
