The Sacrificial Secretary


Collage and ink on paper.

I've been reading a lot lately and it has put me in the writing mood, however my attention span for writing is not long, I stopped and made a few collages in the meantime.

This is fun! There are times when my work swallows me up too...like this poor secretary...problem with my situation though that I am a nurse. I am sure I don't need to say any more. LOL.

I've been trying to read more too. Thank you for suggesting the dog toys today on facebook...I bookmarked their website!

Any good suggestions for summer reading then?
I just read a very 'non-challenging' book called 'The tale of castle cottage',which was perfect for my mood. But it got me all excited about reading the letters and journals of Beatrix Potter and maybe a proper biography. We are on vacation these days and the second book I brought with me is a biography of Mary Cassat. Summer reading. Love it!
Your collage is terrific.xx

Thank you both for commenting! My two favorite books so far this summer have been Water Wings by Kristen Den Hartog and The Sisters: The Saga of the Mitford Family.

Love this... but then, I'm a sucker for old typewriters. So, what are you writing? Poetry by chance?
