Dancing Thing

Visiting some friends down on the south coast not long ago I came across this offering left by a seagull. For reasons I’m not entirely sure of I was subsequently inspired to turn it into something more. The odd dancing thing that resulted is attached below. It’s nice when inspiration hits you from unexpected places, a reminder that if you keep your eyes and your mind open even the smeared leftovers of coastal birds can hold magic and wonderment.

  1. This is so after my own heart. I spent a morning on the sand at Seahouses taking fab photos of worm casts. They look like all sorts of things. I wish I could show you – maybe I’ll bring them to SCBWI York next time on my laptop. I didn’t think anyone else would appreciate them. Now I know you are inventive too! Really enjoyed looking through this blog today.

  2. That Fieffer cartoon is brilliant, and Eleanor – do bring those wormcasts to the next York meeting. Tom, I will be returning to Southampton for the unique consistency of your bird droppings. Thank you.
