The Batsford prize submission

Hello reader. The blog admittedly has been quite forlorn of late, and there are many reasons for that, but the most relevant and important reason is that I have been possessed.

She wanted to work with me to do an art project that involved her students. She had some really lofty ideas with which I was onboard and we began our planning phase. I have this small fear that being #unconditionallygenerous will allow people to use …
