“Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus”- Happy St David's Day
Two things happened today to remind me I am Welsh.
First it’s St David’s Day, patron saint of Wales.
Secondly I got an email from my publisher saying royalties, albeit small, have now been paid into my bank from my third book Searching for Sully
- Our Stories relating to the time I spent in hospital as a teenager with TB.
On a more cheerful note I invigilated again at the Tollbooth gallery for our exhibition , organized by G.O.S.S.I.P , the Stirling based artist collective and met some old friends Jacqueline Marr and Lauren Bremner who popped in this afternoon to see the work.
Sometimes I think the real purpose of art is to bring people together, for the sharing of an experience , and has little to do with money and selling work.
The art itself acts as a catalyst to open up a discussion, particularly on contemporary sculpture and installations, which many folk find baffling.
Sully –Our Stories
I am not certain why this book is showing as unavailable on Amazon unless its something to do with it being a “Print on demand”. Will take it up with them tomorrow.
