It was my birthday not too long ago, and I’m not usually the one to ask for too much, but once I had seen this simple yet wondrous object and then heard the dulcet sounds of a music box I knew it had to be mine.

Moreover, the Eiffel Tower that represents Paris, a city that I adore and wish to go to one day. And the tune, oh the tune! A whimsical version of Tchaikovsky’s Waltz of The Flower that is like sweet honey to the ears, a piece that is my absolute favourite. Something so simple yet holds so much, it really is wonderful.

"Daisies, ye flowers of lowly birth, Embroiderers of the carpet earth." – John Clare, Song of Praise

It’s been far too long since I’ve shown what my eyes have seen and that isn’t good at all. I post this now maybe because of the lovely sight of the front garden, or maybe it’s because I have just watched the splendid film that is Studio Ghibli’s Arrietty, taking a view of the world in the way of those Borrowers. Or maybe it’s simply a union of both.

The days are becoming ever-so-warmer yet it is still May. It’s as if Spring is passing its pushing blooms and blossoms to the time of Summer that radiates everything in the moments that pass. This kind of time that lies on the lip of one season to another is surely one that I truly adore, and I only wish to be able to revel in the enchantment of it.

Your body is a canvas, and you are the artist.

For all I know there’s no rule of art, but one thing must be remembered: you must be the first who is happy about what is on the canvas that is placed in front of you, everyone else is second. I’ve seen it many times that it seems the other way around. What use is it for the artist? What use is it for you?

You’ve been given this canvas, and as the artist you can do whatever you want to do with it that brings you happiness. Tighten it, stretch it, splash paint on it, draw gently on it, do all you want to it. The others are only influence and audience, but without you there is nothing. Put make-up on, don’t put it on, wear it when ever you want. Wear clothes that give you an outline that defines you.

Who ever reads this: take these words that I’ve written, or don’t. All I ask is for you to be happy, and I hope that you fill your canvas with all that is wonderful to you.
