I have decided I want to be an artist
not an academic.
It would be so much easier.
No more worrying about what to do on Strike Day, no more terrible RAE in the middle of the night panics and last minute changes to your esteem indicators (don't ask)
just doing what I like doing best which is:
Taking Photographs (like Dr Joolz)
Writing in notebooks
Being an ethnographer
Meeting people in odd places
Writing muddly stuff which might or might not be interesting
Buying stuff (Whoops that is not art that is called earning money and spending it)
Anyway, this is partly brought on by this book which is my favourite book and cheered me up on the way back from Sheffield to London.
off to write fieldnotes...
