A pile of diaries, dissected. Poems, drawings and other scribbled musings.
Transition to day diary. Buzy. Berlin-London 12/1/95 – Saturday 10th June 1995
(2016) At this point I began keeping hand drawn day diaries…there is little real writing or drawing to share in this scruffy, well worn pocket book. Names and addresses of all connections, painstakingly, copied out into the back of everyone of these ‘book best friend’s that follow. A single-minded, female traveller needs nos. to call. They were precious. A pretty, far flung lot! I began experimenting with keeping a parallel writing book. The next one in the pile.
This gallery of endless lists will gives a real sense of the type of world I inhabited back then! So many mini adventures recalled. So many tales waiting to be born again.
A nondescript diary. Not much in here….but lots going on! 1995
The back is the same as the front. 1995.
Slide film. Bicycles. Images. Merchandise.
Debts. Another Taxi? Drum and speaking at festivals.
Going back to Scotland . Plans.
Address. Aikido. Parking Fines and letters to India.
Giro? Science Museum. Covent garden.
Party in our squatted PUB. Ring Japan. Poetry slam.
Vegetarian shopping, making party props, reminders.
Interviews, insurance nightmare, belly piercing.
Little 1990s collectors card stuck in the pages…hideous!
