Looking for something else entirely this morning I found this copy of  The Morning Post dated January 21 1936.
I bought this paper in an junk shop sometime ago and had forgotten about it.  Having just seen the wonderful film "The Kings Speech" and it being the 21st January yesterday it was too serendipity-ish to ignore.
I thought you might like to peruse (or use) a section of the Personal Column. Rivetting stuff.

Death of a Snowman...

A study in disintigration. This was the snowman built by our neighbour, I wish I'd noticed what was happening a little sooner.

I love the stage where it looks like a demented diva giving her all.

Here we go....

 a new year. No lists of resolutions but a firm resolve to clear my workroom in the hope that I might be able to get in there and actually produce something. It is going to takes some time as this time...... things are going to be ejected!

In the meantime I have been having  little digital play. The first two are from my holiday.

and a London statue placed in a sky
The sky was actually an underwater photograph taken by my daughter and regarded, by her, as a dud!!!! 

                                                          I now pass it on for you to play.

I would like to thank everyone who left a comment and stuck with me through 2010.  I am going to send my wishes for 2011 in the words of Neil Gaiman

May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself. Neil Gaiman
