two hundred and thirty eight

B and I love GoMA. The space, the peaceful energy, the families immersing themselves in art and free thinking. I can almost feel the shift in the girls brains as they see an artists impression of something that is novel and unique, a new way of seeing something. As if they understand how accessible creativity is to everyone. I am grateful for the wonder, the inspiration and the appreciation in their eyes and for the moment today when Kate turned to us and said, this is so cool. Especially because she had really wanted to go to Princess Polly.

B has always had odd yet strangely perfect nicknames for the girls, often to do with whatever was dominating his life or theirs at any given time. I remember Jem being Lampard for a long while, a chelsea footballer. There is no significance as B is actually an arsenal supporter. B’s current nickname for Kate is KinKin. Also no significance. Anyway, we are under strict instructions to write to Kate daily, and B’s offering today was mostly a logo design. With a small paragraph. And a shot of Usain Bolt. Kate will love it. I am grateful our daughters have grown up with creativity every single day. It is part of who they are. Damn that it hasn’t rubbed off on me, I wrote three very long pages. Full of love and daily shit, but not much creativity. It is part of who I am. And anyway Kate would never forgive me if I just sent her a logo.
