My Gift To You
(Repeat it to yourself whenever you feel the need and you will be totally invulnerable)
I have a badge in my heart
I wear it with pride
My friend bound together
A metaphorical diploma
A rosette which is crafted
Of all of my goodness
My qualities and quirkiness
And my heap of wonderfulness
When I asked if I deserved it
My friend answered, “Yes!” x
Warning – Viewing this blog edition may cause you to feel emotional.
A huge thank you to all the contributors; photographers, artists and wordsmiths.
Also a thank you in advance for all the future contributors.
Some of the pieces in the first edition below have been published or displayed previously, as the collection has built over time when there has been a drive or a need.
Some were created as gifts; to encourage or console, others when I have been moved by an image or experience. Some were commissions.
(I will have missed some links, so if you are in here send me a link and I will update.)
Romans in Steam by Flavius – Commissioned by the Roman Bath Museum in York, indeed I believe the video version is still on display in this wonderful museum.
(That’s me as a Roman that is – and that’s my Roman given…

Watch It Norway – It is Ten Thousand Years Today.
It is ten thousand years today since the whole edge of Norway actually dropped off.
Had quite an effect on the world.
Made Britain separate from Europe.
Destroyed whole townships along where the English Channel appeared and along the North Sea
Not to mention making Norway quite thin.
I am hoping it isn’t a regular event.
Because it is due in the morning.
(I am sure quite a few of you are too.)
Cos if it does happen again in the early hours.
It will cause quite a few problems.
Norway would be like a ledge.
The people from over in Sweden will be calling over, “Hey are you alright over there!”
And all the Norwegians will be like lined up with their backs to Sweden (Yes I know that tends to happen anyway) edging along an, erm, well, edge.
They will be balanced on their heels in a long thin line holding hands.
They will call over their shoulders, “Yes we are fine thank you.”
“We are edging our way upwards this week and next week we will be working our way down south again.”
“That’s all we can do really, shuffle upwards or shuffle back down again.”
“The government told us we will all be alright as long as we hold hands.”
“And we always do whatever the government tell us to do whatever party is in power cos we are like that.”
“Right everyone shuffle right.”
(Whispered, “And try not to think about personal space, but rather think about Norwegian Arms”.)
I know I know this wont be funny if it really happens in the morning.
And possibly isn’t funny at all anyway.
But I dreamed it, and it seemed funny then.
Just thank god it didn’t happen to China, cos then when they whispered messages along the line it would all go wrong.
