I can’t. I won’t. I don’t like it. I don’t want to. It does not interest me. No.
The right to say no, and to have that ‘no’ heard and respected, is a key part of getting to be a functional human being.

I just received a piece of original art made by Caroline Devine one of the Freebird collective of artists at the wonderful empty shop HQ.

I was one of three lucky winners who were sent a three colour handmade print from Caroline. I really love it and can’t wait to hang it in my home. For now here’s a picture of it on the somewhat cluttered mantelpiece.
I think this is a very good thing indeed.
