Last post before i disappear for a few days, off to wales and i won't be taking my laptop with me. I have spent most of the night reading Eat, pray, love, it is such a deep book, it is about a woman's struggle after her divorce i am only on page 65 but it is great really touches something in me when i read it. I am hoping my luck will change when i get back from swansea. Check out my main essential in my day bag above i can't go anywhere with out my journal, and oyster card.
Quote from the book...

"They come upon me all silent and menacing like Pinkerton Detectives, and they flank me - Depression on my left, loneliness on my right, they don't need to show me there badges, i know these guys very well. weve been playing cat - and - mouse game for years now. Though i admit that i am surprised to meet them in this elegant Italian garden at dusk. This is no place they belong.
I say to them, "How did you find me here? Who told you i came to Rome?"
Depression, always the wise guys, says "What - you're not happy to see us?"

These are a few drawings i did lat night, i drew lyzi quickly i am going to work on a watercolour on friday for her, i just felt like illustrating someone. So the sketch of her is in image 2, the girl at the bottom i drew at 1 am this morning when i couldn't sleep.

See you lovelies on friday.
