Mistletoe by candlelight,
love lined Christmas markets,
shopping centres full of happy couples.
Let them have what I do not,
it is theirs.
But what is mine?
My Christmas must come early
if I am to maintain the mirage of the miracle.
I'll line the markets with an illuminating
and bathe in the dreams
that will r...

They say home is where the heart is
and my heart is where the art lives.
So where is my home?
Art lives within us all

Hold your friend deep within your soul,
journey into the promise tomorrow h...

‘Would you care for tea?’
‘What kind of tea do you like?’
- and the cupboard swung open …..
shelves of orderly boxes and cans

Sparkled with spices or flower infused?
