Ballet and swimming have been important activities while Amy has been growing up. When Amy was in primary school swimming pool parties were all the rage. 'Gone swimming' features pictures Amy drew inspired by swimming lessons and swimming parties and also pictures by Amy and me of mermaids and underwater scenes. 'River child' was written and recorded by me on my old tape recorder portastudio.

These three pictures represent the creatures of the forest, the fish of the sea and the birds of the air. They illustrate three of my songs 'Primitives', 'Our Watery World' and 'Phoenix'. I painted the forest and the ocean pictures ages ago, before my daughter was born. I had more trouble coming up with a picture for 'the birds of the air' and finally settled on a digital collage.

I love reading and hate it when I don't know what to read next so I joined GoodReads on Friday morning for more ideas. I have so far rated 30 books, reviewed 16 books and have some ideas about what to read next. I don't think I'll be rating or reviewing many more books until I have caught up with the extra ideas I now have. Above are my two 'best book' shelves and below are twelve books I have thoroughly read and enjoyed which I have rated and reviewed on my page at GoodReads.
