Thoughts on travels in Japan

I intend over the next few weeks depending on interest as well to write about a recent trip that I took to Japan.

In the past my travel writings and thoughts took on the form of a diary with things fresh in my mind or at few days old.

This last trip I traveled without a computer nor tablet(not that I currently have one) but only with an iPhone which proved to be more than adequate for the most part.

My travel schedule as well as the small screen of the phone were enough for me not to consider writing entries as I went along.

What sort of words and content do I put here?

I wonder what do I want to share here on this page on the internet.

It’s evident that sometimes we have questions and thoughts that we do want to share with others.

Sometimes it’s things that we are happy to share for some reason with strangers that perhaps we are destined to never meet.

Other times there are things that people that you know will read yet you don’t share it with them in person.

Where do you go with what to share?

Studio time

I applied for and got a studio space in June this year out almost in the middle of nowhere, that said the main road can be damn noisy outside despite being surrounded by fields. i have no view out of a window other than skylights.


Since I pay for it I figure I should use it, maybe I don’t as much as I could due to my somewhat erratic lifestyle and occasional bouts of work.

Its a good space that I occupy and I find myself there because it allows me to try to make work or to discipline myself into doing things that I don’t do when at home for whatever reason.

I’m not sure what I was expecting but quite often I have the whole building to myself which is great at times for it allows me to listen to what I want and for a certain peace in solitude or was I expecting a livelier building with discussions about art and artists?

Although at other times I do wonder where everybody else is perhaps they have better things to do on Sunday afternoons than sit in the studio listening to the traffic and jazz.

I could/will paint or carry on with online tutorials for design software as soon as I’m done with this quick observational post.

I might just walk around shouting at the top of my voice…
