β€œLet go. Say YES to life! Be daring. Dance to your hearts desire. Unfurl your wings and fly. Cast aside conventions and restrictions. Tune in to the rhythm of life. Laugh. Explore. Go beyond predictable behaviour. You’re here to explore, expand and step into your extraordinary self.” . Just the card for this auspicious day - Friday 13th! 🌺 . . . . . . .

Venusian Arts 🌺 At 7am this morning I tried cutting squares of mount board with a Β£200 samari cheffing knife. It didn’t work very well. 😳 Result? We have some very large pieces of card to paint on. . . . .

This evening I found my sea legs and β€œgot” the whole being out on a boat and fishing thing. The sun was going down and I still didn’t want to come back to land. 🌊 And we caught some fishies. . . . . .

Best morning with this one ... rambling, sketching dandelions, playing with our shadows and discussing his dream about Donald Trump - who then morphed into Mr McGregor - and tried to turn anyone β€œtrespassing” in his garden into a pie. πŸ˜³πŸ˜‚ . . . . .

It’s wet, torrential and tarmac black outside. Inside the glittering Venusian Arts Coffee House, even the glasses are enhancing the cosy vibe. 🌺 πŸ”₯ 🌻 . . . . . .

A few months ago I was creating some written copy for the musician and drummer, Rupert Brown about a series of tracks he's made. β €β € These tracks - or "Mind Environments" - have been designed to help tinnitus sufferers to reframe their sound experience, particularly at night time when the condition is most distressing. β €β € Rupert kindly let me listen to a few minutes of one track. We were sitting outside a tea room in Ryde on the Isle of Wight. I put in the ear phones, closed my eyes and waited. Within moments of the Mind Environment opening its auditory doors, I was ushered into an incredible world of visual colour, movement … a sensory kaleidoscope of sound, mood and emotion. At one point I considered taking the earphones out (so not to be rude and leave Rupert hanging out alone in the tearoom garden) but then I changed my mind. I couldn't resist staying in the "sound world" for a just a few minutes more. β €β € I don't suffer from tinnitus. I am, however, extremely sound sensitive. 😝 Certain noises make me want to sequentially head butt a breeze block wall. Other noises can trigger fully fledged feelings of divine angelic heavenly-ness. β €β € Over the last few years I've followed Steve Woodford (Serenity Sounds) and his Sound Immersions around like a besotted puppy. His gong and drum journeys have unleashed massive creativity, acted as weekly therapy during stressful times and have retuned my strings when I've felt myself go flat. β €β € Now, meeting Rupert and hearing his Mind Environments, has opened up another world in terms of sound and it's impact on my head/life. I've been listening to his tracks whilst writing and making art. I've been listening to them before bed. I've become attuned to "tuning into" the sound-scapes I'm exposed to, whether in my home or waiting in a carpark to collect the kids. β €β € This Sunday, Rupert has given me permission to play several of his Mind Environments at the Venusian Arts Coffee House. The aim is to explore the impressions and imagery triggered by the sounds through the medium of paint and people. Tis’ gonna be very interesting and I’m looking forward to sharing what happens! 🌺

First there were telegrams, then there were texts, but before these there were messages in the form of tansies. 🌺 Actually, it wasn’t just tansies but a whole array of wild and cultivated flowers that communicated secret messages from one person to another in the 1800s. πŸ’‹ During the Victorian times strict social guidelines meant that people were unable to express their thoughts and feelings towards each other. 🌻 Instead they relied upon sending messages via an elaborate symbolism in the form of flowers. 🌹 Succinct messages communicated in blooms, colour, wrapping, string knotting conveyed their words and feelings to each other. 🌼 The first book on flower symbolism was written in 1819. It was titled β€œLe Language des Fleurs” and was by a woman called Madam Charlotte de la Tour. πŸ’ . . . . . . .
