The Moon: Tarot card devised by invitation for Theatre Deli pack:
The ‘spinster’ shown here below is inspired by a seventeenth century card – she’s spinning the crescents the wrong way round for the actual phases of the moon – fitting with this card’s idea of illusion and deception. Also including the ancient lunar calendar stone at Knowth.

Bread and Roses Provocation for Theatre Deli social model festival: creative writing to audio:
“We all need bread, but I – and maybe you – also need roses.
I – and maybe you – have to expend so very much of my life on even less than bread – on those ‘activities of daily not-quite-living’ that so many others never have to think about and certainly don’t get exhausted doing.
I – and maybe you – try not to think about how rarely I am noticed as human. 
But I – and maybe you too – wont Ever Stop Insisting on Roses as well as bread.” 

The Hottest Day: creative writing, and audio, plus visual:

Yesterday was the hottest day in the history of the World.
Today is even Hotter
Tomorrow, I fear, will be an even hotter hottest day
The hot hot hot nights in between the hottest days give you no time to breathe 
no time to rest

66,000 dead from heat last year in Europe.
Many more this year. Many many more in Asia, America, Africa.
That’s just the humans. 
Who’s counting the birds, the frogs, the butterflies.
England’s Industrial Revolution started this madness
But what badness are we doing now?
More and more
the British government backtracks, slow downs, fails goes on and on 
While our Earth is sweltering.
Wild fires rage through virgin forest 
Winds feed the fire, Fires stoke the wind. 
While our earth is

Magnificent Multimorbidity: These two female figures are both self portraits, showing my multiple morbidities. My nakedness illustrates how vulnerable I can be. I’m also showing that I am more than a set of diagnoses: I am a human being and a woman. Both of the images are a collage of photographs of me and found objects, plus digital drawing.
