MMATC Group Rainbow Accordion Book: ORANGE

To accord with my various interests and activities as artist, writer, walker, singer, vegetarian, animal lover, bla, bla …I’ve added some pages for reviews; of books, software, web sites and exhibitions and my debut review is one of a series I’m going to write, about Life Journal journalling software. I’ve been using this software for over 5 years now and on close to a daily basis. Continue reading

Walking on Lindisfarne


I posted a picture last Sunday of this fossil I came across on Lindisfarne or Holy Island as it is also known, which lies in the North Sea just off the coast of Northumberland. I took the picture during my one week stay, the week before Easter last year (2011). Continue reading
