Something happened once the web really opened up that, contrary to its unsavoury aspects, was rather wonderful. If you aren’t fortunate to have achieved real fame where once one’s only contacts came about through physical acquaintanceship (constrained by opportunities to travel) suddenly interest could spring from just about anywhere. Online interest occasions many fascinating encounters, some from those just up the road but others many miles away. And so it is that for the very first time I’m sending some work across the Atlantic courtesy of my good online friend Stephen MacInnis. More details will follow but a package of six small pictures on paper are winging their way towards Prince Edward Island! This is how the modern world works I guess but to me it will always be a minor miracle that such things can now come to pass.
