An early morning run (in the car)

Through the glass

Watching the tv through a wine glass.

an early one

foreign shores 
..and a little light in the sky

next door

through a sea mist

looking east

..a little blown about here


sacred ground here

Take your mind off the pain

Protect your creative wounds with the miraculous healing power of a Jesus Plaster.
..... In the studio today
