The Streets of Mandalay

I wander through the dusty streets of Mandalay

Near where the dirty Erwaddy River does flow

And on each human face I meet

Marks of weakness, marks of woe.

(Inspired by William Blake

I find some satisfaction in the act of attempting to express my experience of life through painting, writing, language and other art forms. I have been painting for over thirty five years and combine my love of art with a meditative and contemplative way of life. I have an intuitive sense that true creativity is something that arises from beyond and through the self that can be explored and shared through some form of expression although I always hope to open to the influence of that which is beyond my limited sense of self.

  1. That’s William Blake. Robert Blake was a really cool actor who unfortunately ended up murdering someone. Anyway, great photos, and I love the reference to one of my favourite poems. I even quote from it on the blurb of my book How to Be Free.
