PWM - Preparing

A time to begin...I think I find this moment to be one of the most exciting and yet daunting of the whole process.i've written about this before, and no doubt i'll write about it again..the blank page..the road that stretches on from this spot.

This picture illustrates the moment. The book I'm reading just now is Gabriel Garcia Marquez's magical fantasy: 'One hundred Years Of Solitude'. To me, what i'm reading marks a period in my life...it's as important as the picture I'm working on..because it flavours and influences what I think about and feel..and therefore ultimately what I create.We'll see how this influences the work about to be undertaken. I hereby invite you to come along with me.....

Love the pictures that you click--you have an amazing way of making even the mundane look interesting.

Is that a slide in your yard? (I'm not sure slide is the right word, I didn't speak english when I was a kid haha)

Have you read that book before? I carried a copy for 6 years before I finally read it. It was worth the wait..
I remember a visit to an island. I was there for the duration of Crime and Punishment...I finished the book and left the island.

Chrispito...No i haven't read it before, i'm becoming immersed in it now and i'm enjoying it so far..I love it when a piece of litrature influences and colours my life.
