It's been a heavy day. I'm ploughing on with my dissertation which is about whether contemporary photography can help us deal with the prospect of death. Today I'm almost through with Chapter 2 - which tracks the history of postmortem photography, traditions of mourning, right up to the photographic shrines that were documented after the 9/11 tragedy. I'm tired.. death has permeated my cells today (it feels like it anyhow) and then, the postman arrived. Ohhhh I jumped up and ran, it could
I have to share this... it's the Egg song. My youngest witchlet sings this.. it's addictive and let me tell you, it works its way into your brain and won't let you feel miserable whilst you're singing it.
There are some people who seem to have been put on this earth who I believe to be living angels. My friend, Anne is one of these people. She rescues dogs.

(mostly whinge to myself, and risk looking like a madwoman wandering down the road, tutting at the sky)..anyway.. I digress..

Well, it's 2nd Jan 09 and my first blogging post on TW. I had no idea there was a blogging option on here to be honest (I'm doomed.. I shall never stop rambling now..:)) I'm stressed right now - positive, but stressed. Deadlines are looming at college and approaching at a fast rate plus I've had my interview date sent for a new University place in September 2009 and I'm quaking in my boots to be honest, the whole interview process sounds like a full-on experience. I'm hoping to do my PGCE th
