It's all over now...

When I was walking home from school aged 14 I had it all worked out.

I had never understood football, had any interest in cars and didn't watch
the television...

I do remember the first Pre-Raphaelite painting I saw, and how that very
moment, had decided that all I wanted to do with my life was be an artist..
...but... paint every single leaf... ?

Further more, I found all the greats... and from every movement...
(list them yourself)
It seemed endless.. (it is endless..)

I knew this was the only thing I ever wanted to be.

The world got in the way.

Stupid world.

That 14yr old boy would hate me & dream me dead, but a little sympathy
and understanding from my former self...?

I still remember walking home that afternoon, it was Wednesday, a warm
afternoon, I had it all figured out....

I had it all figured out.


  1. it must have been exhilarating.

  2. you are still that boy.
    and you still have it figured out.
    spending the day in your studio dreaming and building walls.

  3. it was exhilarating.
    (it really was)

    ..yeah, i'm still that boy,
    and i do dream an awful lot!!

    thanks for reminding me.
