This gallery contains 37 photos.

These past couple of weeks I’ve been in a dream of a city… an imperial city… wandering its streets, admiring its architecture and its art, appreciating the warmth of its people even as I remain wary of the danger that … Continue reading

These past two weeks I’ve been hiding away in my own personal, private, solitary retreat in Bali, thinking through all that has happened in 2019 (and before). To tell the truth, I needed to go away. The work had become … Continue reading

This gallery contains 4 photos.

So here it is at last. 10 years ago, I started work on this record, at a crossroads in my life. I chose a roundabout path by way of London, New York and many cities in between, that took me … Continue reading

Glimpses of EPIPHANY

This gallery contains 13 photos.

In the last post, I waxed lyrical about Rapture and Epiphany. I suggested that the latter was something that could be man-made, precipitated through (careful) design and curatorial, in the context of an exhibition at the Museum. That much is … Continue reading

THE FACTS OF LIFE – 14. WAITING

Tsundoku 積ん読, or the Elegant, Obsessive Art of Book-Hoarding

This gallery contains 50 photos.

So in the spirit of balance, I thought I’d post something completely frivolous, and almost nothing to do whatsoever with work.  Well, almost… I’m an incurable bookworm, and a TOTAL geek.  There’s nothing I like more than curling up in … Continue reading

THE FACTS OF LIFE – 11. MISTAKEN

This gallery contains 1 photo.

I intended for THE FACTS OF LIFE to be an experimental album.  Each of the songs explored a very specific emotion in the life cycle of a relationship between two people – joy, sadness, desire, anger, disappointment… While the album … Continue reading

Finding Balance – A 3-Point Action Plan

This gallery contains 18 photos.

It’s been a gruelling few weeks of travel (including weekend travel) and multiple evening/weekend events. Even though I’ve achieved more than I imagined I would in a very short time, I can’t help but remind myself that just a couple … Continue reading

THE FACTS OF LIFE – 10. NIGHT

This gallery contains 1 photo.

NIGHT and WATER…… are a pair. Both were inspired by the dream-like, stark-beautiful landscape of Musandam, a rocky enclave of Oman that sits on the northern-most tip of the Arabian peninsula, separated from the rest of the mainland by the … Continue reading
