On another note, Dernhelm has nominated me for an award – Unique Blogger. Thank you Dernhelm. This time I thought I’d join in. 

I’m going to nominate four blogs on the understanding that they can completely ignore it if they wish. I could have nominated everyone I follow, but I’m typing on a phone so am limiting myself to:

Chris Francz – coz he loves Seinfeld and is master of the ATC

As much cake – coz she’s super friendly and told me what a stoop was

There is no cavalry – coz he’s got a boss double barrelled name

Kestrelart – coz he’s my blogging pal

My three questions to you are…

1.Where were you on the night in question?

2.Can you tell me the way to the train station?

3.What’s the name of that man – you know the one, had a beard, wore jeans and didn’t like Tuesdays?

My answers to Dernhelm are:

Q. If you could describe your blog in one word, what would that word be?

A. Electronic

Q. What do you like to do in your free time?

A. Slouch

Q. Do you read books? Any favourite genre/s?

A. Yes lots. Don’t tend to think in genres. I really like A S Byatt and Raymond Chandler and George Orwell and Daphne du Maurier and Zola and Will Self and and and…

Luncheon of the Boating Party, 1881. By Pierre-Auguste Renoir.

The Boating Party is a series of Q&As with writers, artists, photographers, filmmakers, musicians, sculptors, illustrators, designers and the like.

In times of economic hardship, the Arts are usually the first things to be axed. But, in my view, the Arts are one of the most important aspects of our civilisation.

Without the arts, we wouldn’t have language or the written word. Without the arts, we have no culture. Without culture, we have no society. Without society, we have no civilisation. And without civilisation, we have anarchy.

Which, in itself, is paradoxical, because so many artists view themselves as rebels to society. To me, artists aren’t rebels, they are pioneers.

Perhaps, most importantly; without the Arts, where is the creativity that will solve the world’s problems going to come from? Including economic and scientific ones?

In this Q&A, I am delighted…
