Hi Joseph,

Thank you for giving your time to viewing the post/page 'The Year of
Covid-19, Death and Collages'.

>I really appreciate your honesty and integrity in the writing of this

This is where I am right now - it may not fit into any required art canons
or niches, but so what!

I know I've said something like in another emailhere. Anyway, if we can't
do what we really wish to be now, then what's the point? Especially now.

Yes, I know that very well. My PhD was an all-over academic one. What made
it different to other most academic PhDs, is that it was based on
Autoethnographic research. It was quite a challenge. Got through it though
:-)

But, as you say - dealing with finishing the PhD, two deaths in the family
and existing through Lockdown, while trying to manage Furthefield and
survive, has certainly been a struggle. Not just this, we're moving house
soon. So, that's a whole pile of substance to manage one's way through.

However, I'm feeling quite chirpy because I am closer to who I need to be
than ever before, and I hope this can be said with respect to your good
self and others using this list.

Wishing you well.

Marc
