for various reasons

i have been offline quite a lot. the main reason is that i just finished a book (the Piece of Cake is done) and haven’t wanted to think in prose at all. the ohter main reason is that i am currently undertaking a very stretching residency in potsdam with a choreographer and a dancer or two, working on who knows what, filed under ‘explain later’. will be back on planet blog in a couple of weeks – i’m just saying hello now because my own silence was starting to bother me.

i will be making some changes around here soon too – i need to get off the googles before they take me somewhere i don’t want to go. and i’ve been thinking a lot about ‘the future’ which is what you are supposed to do on the internet, and ways to make some work available online for your reading pleasure. so you can look forward to an interesting new-fangled blog in a month or two and hopefully some more content.

don’t ask me about the book until next week.

    Jen…….your words have made my day. Great sense of humour. I was looking for Jennifer Mills (my life drawing teacher) at RMIT. And I found you. Geees I'd love to come to your side of the planet for a while (a long while) and escape the monotony of city life. Would be nice to disect myself from all this? Good luck with the book and the dancers etc……I'm jealous
