Today was a real slog
Today was a real slog to get to Paddington. The tube is a nightmare, I usually cycle everywhere. That train residency is rather a blessing as I can find time to do some work on the trains. I have to confess that I avoid the rush hour completely otherwise my experience of travelling might not be quite so pleasant.
I grew up commuting between Paris and its suburb and it feels very familiar to be on the train day dreaming, looking at the scenery and being in that strange meditative state train travelling puts you in.
What does an artist do on a train? Well the same thing as other people I guess. The question of whether art is a socially engaged practice is a bit like wondering what a fish does in water. Well they move around don t they?
I got some pretty criptic text today:
"Read at loud?what? 'ten 30'is a beautiful hour.i shouldchange my rythm so that i don't sleep t that time. ill be on the wind at 3pm, possibly maybe. f." Would someone care to translate that one for me. Thanks
