perhaps a new body of work?
the title was inspired by a friend (who is a poet) after she saw the drawings and mentioned the dance...Strip the Willow...

my choice for Music Monday this week is Andreas Scholl ..a voice from heaven and a score from a top movie too!!

"The world was all before them, where to choose
Their place of rest, and Providence their guide:
They hand in hand, with wandering steps and slow,
Through Eden took their solitary way."
— John Milton

seems appropriate as I was in hospital for a couple of days last week...
I'm feeling a lot better today and the tests all came out fine...

this song was one of my Dad's favourites...
