Think I'm starting to know what to do.

Feeling more focused today - had a long chat with my friend Maria about my work - talked her through what I had done since September to the present day. I seem to be a bit obsessive about collecting text messages and friends on the internet - so it's all about me really.

Two years ago I did a sculpture of text messages and emails that John and I had sent each other - I will take a picture of it and post it on my Journal so you can see it. Because it was so personal to me I got very excited and the work was good.  I need to find that personal feeling again - All the comments and emails I get from you mean alot to me - all my text messages mean alot to me - I have over 900 on my phone and I won't delete them - why is that?  Maybe I could do a similar sort of thing that I did with my messages and emails from John. 

At least this has got me feeling a bit more motivated - I haven't felt like that for weeks.

I have stacks of old letters some of which are from companys that are of no importance that I still have and need to go through and get rid of sitting around collecting dust.     Your text messages are of a personal nature and re-reading them must bring you enjoyment.    It will be interesting to see your collage of them.    I have an art print that I did from 2 seperate photos that I made an entry of if you would like to view it.    mark

Blimey, your phone is good, I have to delete my messages when they get to about 50.  It would be nice to see your art work.  Hugs.  Terry x
