It’s EUROTOUR time!!!!!
For the past two years, I’ve been touring Europe in the Autumn, but this time I’m giving it a go in Summer. You know, just to be different. (And also because I’m saving up for a possible Australia or Los Angeles holiday this Autumn).
As of yet, I do not have set dates for Europe but I am looking at June 10th-July 15th. If you are in any of the countries below and would like to be added to my mailing list, get in touch ASAP! The possible “available working day” breakdown is listed below…
Holland: 7 days
Romania: 5 days
Sweden: 5 daysBelgium: 5 days
Germany: 10 days
I will begin advertising, but after I’ve mailed my mailing list so if you’d like first pick of days or to ask me to visit your city, now is the time to do it!
I’m very excited to be so inspired with writing at the moment. The ‘problem’ is that the weather is beautiful and I feel a bit guilty for sticking myself inside. I took the long route back to the mothership the other day so that I could walk through the park, which is filled with giant oak trees standing in twos. As yesterday was Beltane (second-biggest pagan festival and said to be a time when the veil between the worlds opens), the trees did look like sentinels and as I turned around on the spur of the moment, there was a kestrel hovering a few metres behind me. Couldn’t get a picture of him, but I did get these…
I popped out to the garden to have a quick walk around and am now watching the fat round sparrows in the hedge and one solitary swallow sitting on the telegraph wire. They sound as happy as I will be tomorrow. I’m off on a ‘cake date’ with one of my best ladies!
I’ve decided to be a night owl tonight and wait for the sun to go down before I hit the writing again. I promise you’ll get an extract soon.
Now, as I’ve been latexing you to death recently, have some awesome nudes taken by Gary Breckheimer during my last New York trip. I actually wrote an “alt” city review about New York that I just reread and for once am still happy with. Tonight, I’m going to look for a magazine or website interested in publishing it and if not, you guys can see it anyway!
So… these were taken at around 5am; the earliest I had been wandering around central New York, which was a little freaky as the sun wasn’t up when I left. It was a “shoot and run” situation- setting up the shot, checking nobody was around and then dashing off as fast as possible. Some of the shots (I’m thinking especially of my favourite- the mouse one) felt more like a special military operation, or the escape scene in Minority Report- involving ducking behind large objects, waiting until I was out of eyeline, and turning to walk in the other direction as soon as the shot was taken, as though nothing had happened.
Don’t you just LOVE this freaky mouse!!!!?? It’s like a nightmare- I love it!
Speak to you soon, with something completely different!
