I started this blog in 2006. I intended it to be a vehicle for creative transformation. But I grew lazy. Or maybe just overwhelmed with the demands of life.
Today is 7 June 2013. I’ve started blogging again after a break of two and a half years. This time I intend to be more persistent. Whether there will be any releasing of my creative spirit I don’t know. One can but hope.
What do you need to know about me?
Name: Carmel Glover
Age: Timeless (so you know I’m ‘mature’, don’t you)
Occupation: Book designer/artist
Location: Redcliffe Peninsula, QLD, Australia
Things I love:
■ colour and texture
■ music and musicians
■ art – the sort that reveals the soul of the artist
■ design – that combines function and beauty in equal quantities
■ movies – those that make me laugh or cry or think
■ books – especially beautifully produced ones
■ people – those with a sense of humour, who don’t take themselves seriously
■ dappled things
■ beaches – especially deserted ones
■ shells and beach stones
– the imperfect broken ones whose scars show they’ve lived
■ a whisper of danger and adventure
■ the whimsical
■ birds, cats, dogs, donkeys,
snow tigers … all of the natural world and its creatures really (except cockroaches and mosquitoes)
There, I think that’s enough. If you want to know more, ask me questions.
