Season's Beatings

I spent the day away from the studio – partly to escape the ubiquitous enamel haze, partly to lunch with my accountant and review where my finances stand after what has been a troubled year (despite various critical and commercial successes), and partly because I needed downtime to cope with a very low mood.
Christmas is always a bad time for me. I just want it to be over. It doesn't help that the enamel has made me so sick that I don't feel up to seeing anybody let alone eating a big meal.
Bah, humbug!

I wanna be Happy !

Hazel vs Hazel yes, Jacob wrestling with the Angel by Gauguin. A lot of people love you Hazel. On the Nickel by Tom Waits (Heartattack and Vine), would help you. A young girl like Star Simpson too:http://stars.mit.edu/

A lot of the products you use are toxic. Side effects most of the time leave you depressive I know.

Have a nice day, don't look back.

i still love you, regardless of whether you do or not.

Have a lovely few days of rest whilst the world carries on with it's rituals, take good care of yourself and I hope that the new year brings lots of light and joy into your life.

Ah! The black dog strikes, and at Christmas, as he/she often does. Keep on enduring life because the alternative's no good anyway. Happy Festivus!

I saw a guy spray painting artworks in Swanston Street today and he was wearing a gas mask no less. I was glad to see he knew the risks he was facing and protected himself properly. Hopefully Hazel will buy herself a gasmask or equivalent for Christmas and a full body suit to protect her skin from any escaping vapours. The best present you can give yourself is good health.

life sucks sometimes regardless of what day it is on a calendar. the next year is going to be a hard time for all of us, tho i think ultimately we will prevail. key here is to protect yourself from the enamel fumes to ensure you think clearly. just keep working thru the challenges you set for yourself. best to all during this difficult time. draw.

I believe you do use a protective mask already. If you don't, consider using it. It's no good fucking up one's health with those toxic fumes.
