Me ...

(picture above: temporary tattoos that kendalee sent me, left: wind, right: water)

Esti tagged me to answer the following questions about myself:

what is your current obsession?
matching colours to paint chips, re-inventing signs and symbols, thinking about my zine

what are you wearing now?
black cotton drawstring pants, grey long cotton prayer shirt, black leather cuff. big silver ring, bare feet, reading glasses

do you nap a lot?
no, but I may take a little nap on the sofa if I've had a long walk in the morning or if I'd gone to bed after 2am.

who was the last person you hugged?

what is your favourite tree?
i don't really have a favourite real tree. My favourite tree would be an imaginary one with a door in the trunk leading to a cozy little room with books to read and thoughts to be thought and hanging from the branches would be chocolate cupcakes and strawberries and making music amongst the leaves would be a tiny jazz band and there would be little stairs going up to the branches with a platform where I could lie watching the clouds in the day and the stars at night and from where I could see see four different views - the sea in the south, snow in the north, the desert in the west and the mountains in the east.

what´s for dinner?
bread baked by l'usband and soup made from leftover curry - butternut, potato, carrot, lots of chillies, coconut milk, vegetable stock

what was the last thing you bought?
an ice cream for l'usband

what are you listening to right now?
the very loud and strange-sounding hum of the desktop computer - i hope it is not also going to give out on me ...

what is your favorite weather?
sunny and warm, with a very light breeze

what is on your bedside table?
reading glasses, book (richard dawkins's the god delusion), perfume, two chinese fans

what is your most challenging goal right now?
to make a living freelancing

say something to the person who tagged you.
your art is beautiful

if you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where do you want it to be?
i already have it, right here

favorite vacation spot?
I don't really do vacations. I prefer holidays at home. But weekends away: Karoo (Prince Albert), Napier, Riebeek Kasteel

name the things you cannot live without.
l'usband, lindt chocolate, coffee, books, a sea view

what would you like to have in your hands right now?
all of the above!

what is your favorite tea flavor?
Five Roses Chai Spice

what would you like to get rid of?
hatred, unkindness & prejudice in people

if you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
a tango hall in buenos aires

Ohhhh i adore thee more and more- I love the tree that you imagined- I think that it exists ! May I come over if i can squeeze in through the little door?
I am so excited to see what you are cooking...Zine? Book- whatever- fabulous in every way. I also want what you are wearing! Well, maybe in a few more months when the weather stops it's little tantrum behaviour.The tats are awesome- thinking they might be keepers...

Esti said...

can I come to your magical tree? You might want to invite when you know that one of my best friends works for Lindt and always makes sure my closets are full of chocolate... :)

I have so enjoyed having a peep into your life! The curried soup and homemade bread - mmmmmmmm!!!
And the reading glasses have also recently become a decoration all around my home and on me too!

Oh those tattoos so suit you! Also excited to hear more about your zine. Sounds like fun. Are going to sell copies? If so, I'm signing up for a pre-order sight-unseen please for whenever that happens. I know it's going to be brilliant!!!

Love your tree too. Did you ever read Enid Blyton's Magic Faraway tree stories? I always wanted to find that tree and visit the creatures that lived in it and the lands that arrived on a cloud above it. Yours reminded me of it, only better!
