hey there everyone…
thank you so much for all the kind comments, well wishes and offers of support. it really is appreciated.
it’s been three weeks since the burglary and i’m now starting to make headway. it takes a bit of getting used to, this starting again business… but that’s what i’m doing. sorry to have been out of touch for a while, but there’s been quite a bit to sort out. each day you find something else you need that’s no longer there. i have just begun work again and hope to be up-to-date with all that within a few weeks. that’ll be a nice feeling. :-)
i have lost all the original asbo cartoons. thanks to those of you who said they’ve saved them etc… yup they all exist in the format in which you see them on line, but it’s the original files that have gone. which means that it’s just low resolution image files which remain. never mind… it’s a good record. :-)
the good news is… i have a clean sheet. with everything gone i can choose what projects to pick back up and what to lay to rest. it reminds me of when i was 30 years old and i turned up at clare’s flat with just two cardboard boxes to show for my life thus far. along with the sense of loss there was a sense of freedom and a new beginning. that was fifteen years ago and my life now is vastly better than it was before… so, there are plenty of reasons to be positive, even if some days i don’t see it.
i’m not done with asbo just yet. there are plenty of things to say, plenty of discussions to have and plenty of reasons to continue. the main reason being you lot, of course. thanks for the support over the past months and years, it has surprised and delighted me often and i hope i’ve never taken it for granted.
so… here’s to a brighter tomorrow and to new beginnings! :-)
