I have not had my hair cut this short since 1991- so I thought I’d post a photo- dom took it of course. I am still without a camera, and trying to figure out how to use the Leica dom has loaned me. So, what do you think?
There are moments and happenings that suggest that we are not actively
journeying through life as we might think. But rather, that we are still while life
flows on around us, driven by its own agendas. It’s like in the old movies. The
ones where we see the actors in a car motoring merrily onwards to the next
scene. Except of course, they are not really moving at all – the motion we see
through their rear glass is an illusion created by camera trickery. Bluescreen
or something to that effect. This perspective is sometimes unsettling. We like
to think we write, act and direct our own lives. But sometimes it is soothing –
we can just sit back, relax and not enjoy the ride.
just love the title of this exhibition-
have not spoken to Nelun about her work this time, but the title says it all for me.

Jealousy, fear and insecurity
Manifest at the most unlikely time-
As I am about to step into my bath,
Smell a perfume
That I know does not belong to me
So – I smoke a cigarette
Enjoy the deep satisfaction
Of the inhalation
When my husband comes home
The smell of smoke still lingers
‘Honey, have you been smoking?’
‘I don’t smoke.’ I reply, quietly.
Unplug the bath, watch the water
After all, one lie deserves another.
