We left the fancy penthouse, we’d stayed in for two nights on the Quayside in Dublin and headed West on 18 September 2014.
Cashel is a good stopping off point if you want to stay on the way to the West: Cork or Killarney. It is quicker if less interesting to get to the latter via Limerick. (Limerick is supposedly the crime capital of Ireland after Dublin, according to locals in the West.)
Occasionally, you read a book that you wouldn’t normally and it surprises you. The Big Twitch is such a book. We were staying with Denise’s mother in Cowra a week ago and I picked up The Big Twitch and began to read it. I found it hard to put down.
Transit came about because in applying for Use By, I also ended up with a spot in Canberra Contemporary Art Space’s facility in Manuka later in the year. This put me under pressure but also forced me to expand on the ideas generated by Use By. It also forced me to attempt to improve on the techniques and also the execution of my preliminary foray into art. And, although it was a satisfying experience, it was also exhausting.
