Anthem*

Work hard at training today. We do upper body as hurt ankle a few days ago and it’s a bit inflamed. Attached photo is Chest Press On Pilates Ball.

Mum has sent a photo of the fluffy monster looking at the snow:

He looks miserable because he is. He hates snow and has been reduced to the humiliation of using the litter tray, at least to do a wee. No poo so he must have done one in his brief foray outside, one hopes, or he’ll be very uncomfortable. Poor fluffy.

In exciting news: have commissioned a painting! It’s from the brilliant Jake Andrew Art. He has synaesthesia and paints songs. Here is some of his work:

He asked me to choose a song and said he’ll paint it for me. So I said Anthem by Leonard Cohen.

“I see his voice as red and blue,” he said.

“I also like Suzanne,” I said.

“Well leave it with me and if it gets too dark I’ll play around with other Leonard Cohen songs.” He said. So I gave him some more songs:

  • So Long, Marianne
  • Take This Waltz
  • Everybody Knows
  • Closing Time
  • Alexandra Leaving
  • I’m Your Man
  • First We Take Manhattan
  • There Ain’t No Cure For Love
  • Tower Of Song
  • Famous Blue Raincoat

Am excited. This is my first foray into art patronage, other than the portrait of the fluffy monster painted by my talented next door neighbour.

Can’t wait to see the painting!

It’s 4.34pm and it’s dark. It did snow more this morning but it didn’t settle, sadly. I’m listening to Leonard Cohen’s I’m Your Man album and thinking about my painting.

Happy Monday everyone!

*1992. Song by Leonard Cohen from the album The Future.
